Functional Evaluation of Chinese High-speed Railway Station

Yang Wang, Fan Wang, Li-Juan Wang and Tian-Wei Zhang

Abstract

Function orientation plays a very important role in the design of a high-speed railway station. The functions include the passing function, transfer function and commercial function. The qualitative and quantitative analysis methods were used in analyzing the function. According to the high-speed train’s features of high density, less regulation capacity and high punctuality, the numbers of the time for waiting for train’s departure and for gathering passengers were calculated after some parameters were given, the two numbers are decreased, respectively, to 49.1 and 53.2% of the conventional railway passenger station, the passing function should be included in the design of the high-speed railway passenger station. Considering that it is unable to provide a door to door service, a high-speed railway station is often connected by two or more lines and a railway hub with several stations. Thus it is necessary for high-speed railway stations to have convenient and rapid transfer function with other traffic modes, as well as interior transfer in station and railway hubs. The business function improves the revenue and the service standard. Enough spaces for commercial development should be designed to make full use of the superiority of attracting people, commodities and information. Some practical problems should be solved to achieve the three functions.
