One thing that strikes me with the CRH stations is that they are immensely big, have large spans, enormous concourses and interesting engineering pieces, but the platforms are just dull concrete slaps, not even benches have been placed on them. It makes the stations at platform level very unpleasant.

How does a 'pleasant' platform look like? Just curious.

Is it correct that the passengers are only allowed past ticket checks shortly before the train arrives, so they are supposed to remain standing and not need benches?

Passengers are only allowed to get to platforms shortly (10~15 minutes) before train arrives. HSR platform is a dangerous place to stay where frequently there are 200~300kmph non-stop trains passing by.

Does it happen often? Are all tracks in stations next to platforms (1 or 2 tracks between platforms, so both next to platforms) or do the HSR stations normally have through tracks with 3 or more tracks between platforms such that the middle tracks are separated from every platform by other track/s?

Most small and medium train stations have through tracks ,large ones like wuhan station dont have through tracks, because every train need to stop

That explains it a bit. It also explains why the stations are so massive. If it would be build to Dutch standards it would have a lot less platforms that serve a train every 5-15 minutes.
I don't think trains pass at these stations at all, let alone at >200km/h. Creating high speed capable tracks through a station also means that the routes to and from these tracks must be reachable without switches, or with very, very complicated ones.

I haven't been to Wuhan station platforms but in my hometown Cangzhou station, a small HSR station, trains passing platform at high speed is a norm.

If I'm not mistaken in Changsha they do have a middle track, and I was already on the platform when the through train crossed the station at full speed
