Hangzhou South Railway Station

Hangzhou South Railway Station, originally named Xiaoshan Railway Station, was first built in 1931. In 2013, it was closed for reconstruction and is scheduled to reopen in 2019. The new station is built to be a comprehensive transportation terminal rather than a railway station only, consisting of a railway station, a long-distance bus center, a subway station and several city bus stations.  

Located in Xiaoshan District, Hangzhou South Train Station is about 13 miles (21 km) away from Xiaoshan International Airport, 11 miles (18km) away from Hangzhou Railway Station, 12.5 miles (20 km) away from East Railway Station and 13 miles from the famous Broken Bridge over West Lake.

Address: No.1, Zhanqian Road, Xiaoshan District

Both normal and high speed trains will be operated here, including those running to/from Shanghai, Nanjing, Ningbo, Changsha, Nanchang, and Huangshan (where the famous Yellow Mountain is located).

Terminal Building- “A Floating Box” between Mountains and Waters

Hangzhou South Train Station consists of three parts, terminal building, East Square and West Square. There will be 7 platforms and 21 railway tracks inside.

The station building is designed to have five storeys: -2F is for subway platforms; -1F is the arrival floor and transfer hall between subway and rail service; 1F is the railway platforms; 2F is the waiting room and above is a mezzanine for restaurants, stores and other supporting facilities.

Looking from afar, the building looks like a "floating box" surrounding by the mountains and waters of Hangzhou. When finished, its facade will present a landscape painting of Xianghu Lake, the "sister" of West Lake in Xiaoshan District.

West Square

It will be put into use together with the terminal building 2019. At that time, more city buses, taxi stands and private car parking lots will be available here.

East Square

This is the main square of the station for public transfer service, and 2 times larger than West Square. There will be city bus stops, long-distance bus station, tourist bus parking lots, taxi and private car parking lots, public bicycle booth set up here.

The subway entrances/exits for Line 5 and Line 11 will also be located on this square. The line 5 will be put into service in 2019 together with the square while the opening time of line 11 is not known yet. One thing worth mentioning is that the subway line 5 will run all the way to Shaoxing, bringing great convenience for passengers traveling between the railway station and Shaoxing.

Hangzhou south station is not open yet at the moment. But it is really the nearest rail station for people living at Xiaoshan distance, and passengers who come from Shaoxing and Zhuji can also take trains here in the very near future.
