I recently discussed trams trying to make a come-back to Korea, with projects ungoing in Wirye, Changwon and Suwon (among others). Now, there is a new contender for the 1st modern tram system to be built in Korea title.

It's a very short line, and designed as a shuttle rather than a full tramway line. A bit peculiar because it only has one use. But I think that with its open space and new city design, Pangyo (city of Seongnam in Seoul's Southeast suburbs) is a good potential location for a line. Here is the full article from Kojects

Pangyo to Lead Tram Renaissance



Following the increasing number of light rail lines opening around South Korea, a tram renaissance is also quietly brewing in several of the nation’s cities. One of the first places expected to bring back traditional trams since they disappeared from Korea nearly 5o years ago, is Pangyo Techno Valley in Seongnam City. In the past we’ve written about bi-modal trams that have been trialed in a few places around the country, but these haven’t seen much success so far.

The Pangyo Tram project was announced by the Mayor of Seongnam City at a press conference last year and will be a short 1.5km line. The route will ultimately act as a shuttle between Pangyo Station and industrial complex areas, with final designs to be confirmed next year. Construction will then take place over the next two years with the aim to open at the end of 2018. Building the tram is expected to cost a total of 32 billion won.

Below is a map of one of the proposed routes with stops at Sampyeong Bridge (삼평교앞), Geumto Stream (금토천), Jungang Plaza (중앙광장), Park (공원), Pangyo Station (판교역).


Pangyo Tram Map – Image: Railroad Paradise
As you can see from the map above, the tram is designed so that it mainly runs through “transit malls” in between buildings and only covers a minimal amount of road. The trams won’t have any overhead wiring, instead running on batteries, and creating a safer, better looking environment at the same time. Hyundai Rotem have already developed and started trialing such trams (see banner image), with Suwon planning to use the same type of vehicles for another future tram project.


A Hyundai Rotem Tram displayed at Suwon’s Ecomoblity Exhibition in 2013.

Seongnam City delegates also recently visited Helsinki, Finland which has a more than 120 year history of operating trams, in order to carry out benchmarking and learn more about tram technology. The trip resulted in the two cities agreeing to share information about trams and tram technology in the future.

You might expect an area like Pangyo, which is home to companies and institutes that deal with cutting-edge technology, to already have some sort of modern “clean, green” mode of transport. However, the reality has been far from that.

One of the main issues is that although Pangyo is connected to the Sinbundang Line, the Techno Valley area where a majority of the 70,000 employees work is actually quite a walk from the station, especially for some parts. In recent years, this led to many workers using their cars to commute instead of using public transport, creating what was dubbed a “parking war” by the media due to the lack of spaces.


This photo was taken near where the second stop (Park) in the above map would be located.
Nevertheless, it’s hoped that once the Pangyo Tram is complete, more commuters will change their habits and find the experience of hoping off a tram right outside their office building a more attractive option than spending time searching for a carpark or parking illegally.

The project is still in the early changes, but the timeline line is a short one and one that I hope will progress swiftly. I’m definitely keen to see Pangyo Techno Valley help lead the way with environmentally-friendly and pedestrian-focused transport, as well as act a role model for other cities with similar plans. There are currently four other cities already planning to build trams including Seoul and Suwon, and several other cities considering it. We’ll be sure to post about these other tram projects in the future once projects are confirmed and more information becomes available.

is that an extension of Line 8 or a whole separate line? If a separate line, will Seoul metro trains do through-running onto this new line?

According to the Wikipedia page--take it as you will--it's an extension of line 8, which if true would likely mean shared rolling stock. It also mentions a possible further extension to the south, to Pangyo.

Yes, the Byeollae Line is an extension to Line 8, so it will connect to Line 8 and the rolling stock will be the same. There is indeed a plan for extending the line southard to Pangyo, as shown below :


https://namu.wiki/w/%EC%84%9C%EC%9A%...98%B8%EC%84%A0

However, there is nothing decided about this southern extension, while the Northern extension was planned quite a long time.

Also, the Southern extension would only be beneficial to go to Pangyo, not to Yongin or Suwon for exemple (you can take the Bundang Line), so it's not the most important extension I'd say. Especially since starting next summer, the Yeoju-Pangyo line drawn in dotted gray) will further facilitate commute from Moran station to Pangyo station through Seongnam station

Government pushes away Incheon's plans for a Songdo-Jamsil GTX Line B in favor of the Songdo-Cheongnyangni route

GTX Line B was initially proposed to go from Songdo (in Incheon) to Cheongnyangni (in North-East Seoul), through Incheon City Hall, Bupyeong, Dangarae, Sindorim, Yeouido, Yongsan, and Seoul Station.

However, last year, the city of Incheon submitted an alternate plan, going from Songdo to South-East Seoul in Jamsil. (through Incheon City Hall, Sosa, Gasan Digital, Sadang, Gangnam and Samseong - and with additional stops being considered at Seoul National University of Education and Seolleung), with all 3 lines intersecting at Samseong Station.

However, the government has just announced its opposition to this plan and intends to maintain its initial plan of going through the busy train stations of Yongsan, Seoul Station and Cheongnyangni, as well as Yeouido, the city's financial center ; rather than go along the busy Gangnam axis along Teheran Street and Olympic Avenue.

Here is a picture :

the red Line B is the one favored by the government, which will probably get built, while the black line B was proposed by Incheon as an alternative but just got rebuked.

Seoul Subway Line 9 to increase capacity

Seoul Subway Line 9 is a crucial line to Seoul's infrastructure. It's most recent line built truly within Seoul, in 2009 (excluding extensions or lines that mostly go to satellite cities). It is the first privately-run line of the city and also offers a slicks express train service.

The line has been successful (as far as passenger), but management hasn't been adequate. From day 1, the line was saturated, with only 24 trains on the line. That was somewhat alleviated in 2011 with the addition12 train sets. However, the issue became worse than ever in March 2015 with the opening of Phase 2 from Sinnonhyeon to Jamsil Sports Complex. This has created additional traffic, and made the line more attractive to people going to Gangnam (who previously had to take line 2 or 7). So the demand increased. The supply, in relative terms, decreased, because no new trains were introduced and the existing 36 train sets had to cover 30 stations instead of 25. So the line is crowded, and the frequency is low compared to other lines (especially considering that the trains are only 4 cars each, while most other lines have 6, 8 or 10-car sets).

The line has been satirically called Hell's Subway (it's a Korean pun that doesn't translate into english) because it's too crowded.

The city has seemingly a plan that should be much more viable for the coming years.

The Line 9 depot (located at Gaewha) is being extended, with new lines. Construction started today and will finish in August. Once completed, the depot will be able to hold more trains. Starting from August and until the end of the year, 32 additional cars will be brought into service (8 trainsets), bringing the total to 44.

That will still be insufficient to some degree I guess, and by the end of 2017, 38 additional train sets will be put into circulation. Which will translate into one additional trainset (total of 45), but with some trainsets (17 to be precise) having 6 cars instead of 4.

And then, in 2018, Phase 3 of the line will be opened, extending the line Eastwards by 9.4km and 8 stations. And this time around, the city will be prepared as it plans to roll out 80 new cars at the opening of phase 3. The number of trainsets will rise slightly from 45 to 49, but all trains will then have 6 cars, instead of 4.

Here is the recap below (in Korean but I think you can figure it out, it's basically just numbers).

Opening of the Shinbundang Line Southward expension on January 30th

The line opened Saturday, with no major problem. I'll just copy/paste the kojects article (http://kojects.com/2016/01/11/shinbu...-january-2016/) so that you have an English language primary source, even though the article was written a few days ahead of the opening


The southern Shinbundang Line Extension to Suwon is set to open at the end of this month. The high-speed metro line has been open for over four years now and from January 30, the Shinbundang Line will begin operating services all the way to Gwanggyo(Kyonggi Univ.) Station in Suwon.

There are six new stations on the 12.8km extension: Dongcheon, Suji-gu Office, Seongbok, Sanghyeon, Gwanggyo Jungang(Ajou Univ.) and Gwanggyo(Kyonggi Univ.).



Also known as the “DX Line”, the current service boasts a quick trip of only 16 minutes from Gangnam to Jeonja Station and travels at a top speed of 110 km/h. The opening of the extension will bring the length of the entire line to 31.3km, making it the longest driverless railway in Korea. Travelling the length of the line is expected to take 30 minutes, which is very fast considering that a trip on the Bundang line from Seonneung to Cheongmyeong (the first station on the Bundang Line in Suwon) takes 58 minutes.

Trains will operate from 5:30am to 1am on weekdays and 5:30am to 12am on weekends and public holidays. Designs of the six new stations can be viewed on the Gyeonggi Rail website. Gwanggyo, the final station, is the only station above ground and also the location of the new depot. Another unique station is Gwanggyo Jungang Station which has an underground bus stop for quick transfers — likely to be popular on cold winter days.

Here is what a full run on the line will be like :



I didn't watch it in full, but I believe there are a few cuts in this video. Kojects says it will take 30 minutes from Gwanggyo to Gangnam, but I've seen reports of 31 and even 37 minutes posted on Korean media, so I don't know for sure. It still beats the express buses, which take 50 minutes.

Also, the underground transfer station at Gwanggyo Jungang is not completed yet and should open in late february

Opening of the Incheon Airport Maglev scheduled for February 3rd

The opening, delayed for almost 3 years, is now scheduled for this Wednesday. The line will become the 3rd commercial Maglev Line in the world.

The line is 6.1 km long, with 6 stops and heads Southwest from the Airport to Yongyu, going through the airport parking lot, the airport business district and its casino... but there won't be much else on the line.

There are plans for 2 extensions. A 9.7 extension that would link the line with the 2nd terminal, and a 37.4 further extension to complete the loop around the Yeongjong island where the airport is located.

From what I understand, the line will not be integrated (at least for now) with the rest of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway System and will function independantly.

Here is a video simulation of the line

Incheon commuter rail extension opens in Korea
Friday, February 26, 2016



KORAIL will open an extension to the Suin (Suwon-Incheon) Line commuter rail on February 27 from the current terminus of Songdo to Incheon where it will connect with Line 1 of the Seoul metro

The 7.4km extension is almost entirely underground, and has historical significance as it will re-establish a rail connection between Songdo and Incheon - the original narrow-gauge line closed in 1973

I wonder why the Suin Line is referred to as "commuter rail." Isn't this just a regular subway line?
