Hangzhou East Railway Station (simplified Chinese: 杭州东站; traditional Chinese: 杭州東站; pinyin: Hángzhōudōng zhàn) is a railway station located in Zhejiang, People's Republic of China. Originally serving the Hukun Railway, as of 2012 it is being rebuilt as a high-speed rail hub, which became operational on 1 July 2013.

History[edit]

The old station opened in 1992,[1] located on Tiancheng Road. It was closed on 20 January 2010,[2] and demolished.[3] Its train services were moved to Hangzhou Railway Station and Hangzhou South Railway Station.[2]

A new station is being constructed on the site. It officially opened on 1 July 2013, in conjunction with the opening of the Hangzhou–Ningbo Passenger Railway and Nanjing-Hangzhou Passenger Railway. The station will also serve the Shanghai–Hangzhou Passenger Railway. It will have 30 railway lines, and will have stations for Hangzhou Metro lines 1 and 4.[4] A coach station and bus terminals are also being constructed.[3]
