    opposite to "next to".

    The station next to "A" is "B" (station).
    The station ............... "B" is "A".

    Please fill up the blank with a suitable word. I guess it's "preceding to". Is it correct? Anyway, please give me more colloquial word in this context.

    Re: opposite to "next to".

    Do you mean it's just "preceding B is A", not "preceding to 'B' is 'A'"?

    The station preceding B is A. --> Station B is subsequent to station A.
