In order to cope with the surge in passengers during upcoming three-day Qingming Festival holiday from April 4 to 6, the railway in Hangzhou takes measures such as adding operational trains and nighttime high-speed trains to meet needs of passengers for trips.

The added trains mainly are connected to popular destinations like Shanghai, Nanjing, Nanchang, Yiwu, Jinhua, Quzhou, and Baotou.
