I can't find it. Just lots of old-fashioned Commie-style announcements. :p

The structure is wasteful, IMO. It's the first round station and... that's it.

How is it wasteful? Tens of millions of people will use it every year.

A bullet train station will be a new Shanghai West Station, located beside Hongqiao airport. It will have bullet train (Beijing-Shanghai high-speed train), maglev (Hongqiao-Pudong airport), several subways, long-distance bus, inter-city trains(To Suzhou and other Yangtse river delta cities), and airplanes (Hongqiao airport, ofcourse). It should be largest in China, and in the world.

6 platforms and 13 tracks

(一)建设中的铁路上海南站情况
建设中的铁路上海南站(以下简称上海南站)已经上海规划局批准,位于徐汇区沪闵路以南、石龙路以北,桂林路以东,柳州路以西,总规划面积约60公顷,有6个站台,13个股道轨。同步建设的还有作为上海市三大公路客运主枢纽之一的上海长途客运南站,再加上原有的地铁1号线、明珠3号线及规划中的L1线和众多市内公交线路,铁路上海南站建成后将成为国内一个重要的集火车、轻轨、公交等多种现代交通工具作为一体的“零换乘”枢纽。徐汇区政府视现代化上海南站为独特区位优势,将为徐汇新一轮发展带来难得的机遇,明确提出要发挥交通枢纽功能,形成错位竞争优势的口号。
