i agreed
most light rail in korea are useless and waste money
but seoul light rail project is very efficiency and deserved to make especially sillim-line!

That line relatively closed from my home so i like it.
now most commute people using crowed bus insteady of rail.

Sincheon Station to be Renamed
20th Oct 2015


Sincheon (신천) or Sinchon (신촌) Station?


If you accidentally go to the wrong station itís nearly a 40 minute and 20 station subway ride to correct your mistake

Whether you only speak a little Korean or youíre a native speaker, itís not unusual to have to clarify which station you mean when talking about these two stations due to how similar they sound. What made it even worse is the fact that they are both popular entertainment areas for university students and there is also a suburb named Sincheon-dong on the other side of Jamsil to where Sincheon Station is located.

It seems Sincheon residents finally got sick of this and asked that it be changed. Following a vote from a selection of names including Sinjamsil Station (신잠실역) and Jamsil Jungang Station (잠실중앙역), the name that received the most votes and will be used as the new name is Jamsilsaenae Station (잠실새내역)

Haha, I personally know what that's like. While studying at Yonsei, some Korea friends said they wanted to meet at Sincheon station, but I heard Sinchon, and was just wandering around looking for them for a solid hour before I got in touch and realized my error. Smart move.

October 31st saw two significant improvements to Seoul's Subway system :

1 / Opening of Yadang Station on Gyeongui-Jungang Line


http://www.etoday.co.kr/news/section...?idxno=1224939


http://m.blog.naver.com/yuns609/220104142389

The station will be conveniently located in Yadang a medium-sized new city between Paju and Ilsan (Goyang), Northwest of Seoul, on the Gyeonggui-Jungang Line.



2 / Opening of the underground transfer tunnel at Noryangjin station


http://www.enewstoday.co.kr/news/art...l?idxno=433817

Line 9 and Line 1 intersect at Noryangjin, but the station had very weird configuration : there was only one exit at Line 1, and to transfer between Line 1 and 9, riders had to leave the subway system, get out onto the street, walk about 300 meters, and get back in the system again. Not only was it annoying, but for single-fare passengers (the few who don't use T-Money or similar systems), they had to buy another ticket and couldn't transfer at Noryangjin. Some subway maps even had Noryangjin marked as two separate stations rather than as one transfer station.

With this tunnel, it will cut the distance between stations from 300 meters to 150 meters, without having to get onto the street and without needing to pass through the subway gates again to transfer.

official few days ago subu-ganguk chuldo: western of seoul wide range subway train plan confirm as national grand metro project

So this project will be deal with national project

important project : which is connected with magok with SANGAM DMC+HONGDAE
magok: LG SCIENCE PARK etc many company invest as new R&D center now u/c
SANGAM DMC : now there are no subway station yet(I mean easily accessible station) but with this new project then people can to train more convenient
sangam is MECCA of korea broadcasting company and news paper.

So if completed then those two important distirct connect with subway.
personally I think this project is very important. Now very inconvenient access to western side of seoul by train.

WELL I respect your opinions
And I don;t know how other country's situation concern nimbyism

but I think korea nimbyism also headache
for example
KOREA completed only 3 DAM since last 20 years(UN designated Korea as water shortage county)
But same period JAPAN completed over 70 DAM
Korea can't built DAM Due to opposition of FEW green activity' NGO(a kind of green peace) and NIMBYism

Well So it is case by case
Some part korea is less nimbyism comapre with other country
but other part more selfish & irrational. So many project stalled by FEW selfish

however I agreed your comment that "Koreans are certainly more used to sacrificing for greater good so to speak" make sense.

I think the poster was referring to rail projects.
Similar train / subway lines in the UK take decades because people object.

Is this an extension to the AREX? It seems to run the same route from Digital Media City to Hongdae.

I don't think so because I see Gimpo Airport north of the proposed route not on it like the AREX. However, I do not know if this proposal makes sense. The A'REX is already underutilized and putting in another parallel corridor will further reduce its ridership.

It might use the same ROW as the AREX north of the river (if it's above ground), but otherwise, it'll serve as another north-south connection over the river, connecting previously-distant lines through a neighborhood that looks like it wasn't adequately served by transit.

Is the AREX really underutilized? I found it fantastic when I was travelling from the airport into the city. Quite a reasonable price, too; cheaper than the Airport Express line in Beijing, too, just by way of comparison.

Kojects with a more detailed article about the Noryangjin project : http://kojects.com/2015/10/31/noryan...finally-opens/

Noryangjin Station Transfer Tunnel Finally Opens

31st Oct 2015|



This morning the Noryangjin Station transfer tunnel between Seoul’s Line 1 and 9 finally opened, more than six years after Line 9 first began operating.

If you’ve ever had to make a transfer at Noryangjin Station, you’ll know that up until now doing so was pretty annoying due to the lack of an internal transfer tunnel. This meant that you had to go outside the station and walk to the other station, as well as go through two sets of gates, of course scanning your transport card twice in the process.


Up until now passengers have had to leave the station to transfer between stations.

Of course the gates were still set up so that it counted as a transfer despite leaving the station, but nevertheless it was a pain not being sheltered from the elements and also having to run up and down two sets of stairs at the Line 1 station for some platforms due to the station design. Commuters using a one-use ticket or commuter pass weren’t able to transfer at this station without paying again.

Seoul says that the new transfer tunnel cuts the distance between stations from 300 meters to 150 meters and reduces the transfer time by two minutes. While a couple of minutes may not seem like much, it can mean the difference between waiting quite a while if you miss some trains, particularly some of the more infrequent services on Line 1 or the popular express trains on Line 9.

Like at all Metro 9 stations, passengers will still need to pass through a transfer gate. There are also four elevators and two escalators connecting the stations.

According to Yonhap news, Seoul Metropolitan City says that the new connection cost 19.5 billion won and will benefit the 27000 commuters that transfer between the stations everyday. One-use ticket and commuter pass card holders can now transfer normally like at any other station.

The opening of the tunnel leaves Seoul Station as the only station in the city where you still need to leave the station to transfer to one of the other metro lines (Gyeongui Line) at the same station.

Goodbye to Noryangjin’s Pedestrian Overpass

Alongside the lead up to the opening of the new transfer connection, Seoul has also been saying goodbye to Noryangjin’s famous pedestrian overbridge after it was decided earlier this year to remove it. The bridge which was built 35 years ago, stretched over the busy Noryangjin-ro and had become a defining character of the area in itself. Connecting the main station area with numerous academies, many people will have fond (or not so fond) memories of using the bridge when going to study or sit civil service exams here. A huge message board was even set up for residents to say their goodbyes.

Despite this, the overpass was not very accessible for the elderly or disabled. It was also in poor condition and in 2013 was given a “C” grade following an inspection. Many complaints were received about how the bridge shook from the constant traffic flowing under it and keeping it maintained was costing more than 10 million won a year.


Seoul says goodbye to the Noryangjin Overpass after 35 years.

According to Dongjak-gu, the estimated number of pedestrians that used the overpass was 2820 an hour. A new pedestrian crossing has been built directly under where the overpass was and Line 1 users can also use the new transfer tunnel via the Line 9 entrance to get the station.

The photo of the overpass below taken just before its removal shows a sign reading in Korean, “35 years…thanks for holding out so long!”— probably could have used a better choice of words there.

The final plans for the Indeogwon-Suwon Line have been disclosed to the public. Here is the final map. Compared to earlier plans, it will be fairly longer, with 17 stops and a length of 34 kilometers. It will stretch from Ingeogwon Station in Anyang all the way to the new city of Dongtan. It will stretch along the Northern side of Suwon, bringing much needed subway service to the area. Interestingly, the latest change included a little "hook" at Heungdeok station, to link Gwanggyo New Tow to the rest of the town.

Subway transport in Suwon should also be improved with
- The southern extension of the Sinbundang Line (the extension to Gwanggyo will open this February, and a further extension all across Suwon in a couple of years)
- Suwon Line 1 (which will actuall be a tram)
- The completion of the Suin Line (in 2017 or 2018)

A tram in Korea? This must be the first since the colonial era.

Yes, there are no trams operating in Korea. But this Suwon line project is far from starting construction yet. And there are other contenders for the "1st modern tram system in Korea" belt :
- Wuirye New City (between Songpa-Gu in Seoul and Seongnam). It's part of the official 10 new lines of subway to be developed by the city of Seoul.
- Changwon. The project was redesigned as a tram in early 2014. Haven't heard so much about it since though.

And a lot more, according to the Korean Wiki equivalent (which is more useful than regular wiki for Korean projects) :

Quote:
2005년 경에 인천에서 월미도 노면 전차 계획을 세운 적이 있었다. 위의 탱크 사진이 실린 기사가 그것. 그 계획은 현재 월미은하레일이라는 이름의 관광 모노레일로 바뀐 상태인데, 망했어요.상태가 되었다가 지금은 어떻게 될 지 모른다.

울산도 특정 지역의 연약지반 때문에 지하철을 설치할 수 없어서 교통량이 많은 구역의 분산을 목적으로 노면전차를 설치, 운용하는 계획을 설립하고 시행에 들어갔다. 울산광역시 경전철 항목을 참조. 그러나 한동안 노면전차의 노선 때문에 울산의 각 구와 시의원들과의 마찰이 끊임없이 일어나기도 했다가 시행 발표 수 년이 지난 현재까지도 구체적인 방안이나 시행 계획이 발표되지 않고 있고, 공식 홈페이지마저도 결국 폐쇄되었다. 흑역사?

최근에는 서울 및 여기와 인접한 성남, 하남시에 위치한 위례신도시에서 신도시 내 5km구간을 노면전철로 연결하는 서울 경전철 위례선을 추진하고 있다.

통합을 통해 100만이 넘는 인구의 대도시가 된 창원시에서도 넉넉한 재정을 바탕으로 창원시 도시철도로 노면전차 도입을 추진했으나 결국 백지화 되었다.

그 외에도 청주 #, 제주도 #에서 노면전차 도입을 검토하고 있다.

수원의 경우 전국 최악의 버스철 구간인 수원역 - 매산로 - 팔달문 - 수원 종로 - 장안문 - 수원공설운동장 - 장안구청을 잇는 무가선 노면전차 노선을 2017년에 개통할 계획이다. 현재 사업타당성 조사 진행 중이다 .#

김해는 고가로 건설된 부산김해경전철에 이어 장유 방면으로 2호선을 노면전차로 추진하고 있다. 링크

부산 역시 부산전차가 폐선된 지 50여년이 지난 2014년 1월 노면전차 노선을 추진하는 계획을 발표했다. 부산 경전철 및 북항 트램 항목을 참조.

2013년 들어서 대전 도시철도 2호선을 자기부상열차(고가철도)로 짓지 말고 노면전차로 짓자는 주장이 시민단체와 정치인에서 나왔다.링크
https://namu.wiki/w/%EB%85%B8%EB%A9%...4%EC%B0%A8#s-5

So basically, everyone wants or has wanted a subway at some point : Ulsan, Cheongju, Jeju, Gimhae, and a bunch of lines in Busan. But these projects are in their infancy, and I doubt many of them will see the light of the day.

My money is on Wuirye opening up first, then Changwon and Suwon.

Realistically though, for many of the cities mentioned, it's hard to envision a tram system. They could work for a medium sized city like Cheongju, or a specific new city like Wuirye, but Korean cities are very dense, and crowded, so rearranging roads to allow for a tram would be expensive and inconvenient, probably more so than in Europe. And in Korea, we're talking about cities of around 1 million people at least, and it would be hard for a metro system to deliver in terms of capacity and travel time. Finally, topography could also be problematic, because of hills and mountains inside a city. It's hard for a tram to go up or down a hill if the grade/slope is too important, while a subway can just cut through it.

Yes, South Korea's combination of topography and population settlement and housing patterns would, in my opinion, actually make ideal a huge number of pedestrian-oriented cities, but sadly urban planning in the country seems to have not yet caught on to this fact.
