Kaohsiung Station (Chinese: 高雄車站; pinyin: Gāoxióng Chēzhàn) is a railway station located in Sanmin District of Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Republic of China, which serves the Taiwan Railway Administration Western Line, Pingtung Line and the Kaohsiung MRT Red Line. There is a plan to extend Taiwan High Speed Rail from Zuoying to this station.


TRA Station[edit]

The temporary TRA station is a three-level aboveground station connected by elevated walkways between train platforms. It is divided into front and back stations. At ground level, there are four island platforms and twelve tracks (previously thirteen tracks). Eight of the tracks are aligned with platforms.


Numbering starts on the left (south side).

The Kaohsiung MRT station is a two-level, underground station with one exit.[3] It is located at Jianguo 2nd Road.

The entire station is currently undergoing construction as part of a project to move all rail lines through Kaohsiung underground. Though the station is functional, many areas are not operating at full capacity. Kaohsiung Main Station's platform only allows for three-car configurations while all other stations on the Red Line have platforms that can accommodate six-car configurations. Construction is expected to be completed after 2012.
