Located in Chongqing's Yubei District, it serves the nearby Chongqing North railway station. It opened with the first phase of Line 3 on September 29, 2011 as Chongqingbei Railway Station (simplified Chinese: 重庆北站; traditional Chinese: 重慶北站; pinyin: Chóngqìng Běizhàn).[1] On March 23, 2016, in anticipation of the opening of a second metro station just north of the same railway station, its name was changed to reflect its location serving the south square of the railway station.[2]

On December 28, 2017, Line 10 opened for passenger trial operations, however the Line 10 section of this station opened on December 28, 2018, exactly one year later than the other stations in the metro line's Phase I.[3]

The Loop line section of the station also opened on December 28, 2018.

Together the 3 lines(Line 3, Line 10 and the Loop Line) share the same concourse for entrance/exit and transfer while the Loop Line has one other concourse that solely serves Loop Line passengers.
