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 was built 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 also serves the Shanghai–Hangzhou Passenger Railway. It will have 30 railway tracks, and will have stations for Hangzhou Metro lines 1 and 4.[4] A coach station and bus terminals are also part of the new transit hub.[3]
