Busan orders new fleet for metro Line 1
Tuesday, March 15, 2016



BUSAN Transportation Corporation has awarded Hyundai Rotem a Won 52.8 trillion ($US 442.1m) contract to supply 40 new metro trains for use on Metro Line 1

The trains will replace the line's existing eight-car sets which were introduced in 1985-6. Deliveries are due to start in 2017 with the trains also set to serve the southern extension of the line from Sinpyeong to Dadaepo which is scheduled to open next year

It's not expanding as fast as Seoul, but there are various projects going on, so I figured it would be good to talk about it.



Here is the map of the system, with existing lines in color, future extensions in dotted lines, and new lines in grey.

- Sinpyeong - Dadaepo extension to line 1, in southwestern Busan. The 6-station, 6.3 km extension is scheduled for completion in november 2016, and should start running in early 2017.
- Sasang - Hadan line, will link Line 1 and Line 2 in western Busan, along the Nakdong river. The line will have 6 stations (including Sasang and Hadan) over 6.8 km. Construction will start next month, with a planned opening for 2022. There are proposals for extanding the line further South, but nothing set in stone yet.
- Yangsan line. Once again a line connecting line 1 and 2, but this time in Northern Busan, and in the neighboring city of Yangsan. It will have 7 stations and a length of 12.4 km. The line will go from Nopo to Bukjeong station.
- Donghae South Line. The Donghae South line will actually go all the way from Busan to Pohang, but only a portion of it, from Busan (Bujeon station) to Ulsan (Taehwagang station) Starting in October 2016, service will begin between Bujeon and Ilgwang station (a beach resort located halfway between Busan and Ulsan), while the Ilgwang-Taehwagang section will open in 2018). This is a very strategic line, because even after the 1st opening, it will be the quickest way to travel from central Busan (near Seomyeon) and the dynamic Haeundae district), especially given its limited number of stations. It will offer connections with other lines at Geoje Station (Line 3), Busan National University (Line 1) and BEXPO (Line 2). It will finally bring subway service to important areas such as the Northern part of Centum City.
- Gyeongjeon Line. It is also an historic line,in southern Korea. A new section is scheduled to run from Bujeon Station (connecting it with the Donghae South Line) to Masan. It will go through the city of Changwon, and allow transfer with other subway lines at Sasang station. It is scheduled for completion in 2020.

There are many other projects along the way, but they are much farther down the road.

Construction to Begin on Busan’s “Line 5” Next Month
27th May 2016



Construction on a new line in Busan from Sasang Station(사상) to Hadan Station (하단) will get underway next month and is expected to be completed in 2021. While the name of the line hasn’t been decided yet, it’s expected that it will become the city’s “Line 5”.

The route will be another light rail line in addition to the Busan-Gimhae Light Rail and Busan’s Line 4, but will be located entirely underground. Line 2 and the Gimhae Light Rail connect with the new line at Sasang, making it Busan’s first station with three metro transfer connections. Hadan is also a transfer station to Busan’s Line 1 subway

Here is my contribution to the Busan metro system, a new map based on the one we developed with Naver last year( http://map.naver.com/?menu=subway&ma...n=7000&enc=b64) but with more landscape features and some additions: the suburban rail lines and the Jagalchi bend

Donghae Line Opens in Busan, Next Phase to Ulsan to be Completed in 2018

Andy Tebay|



The Donghae Line began operating today, bringing the number of lines on Busan’s metro system to six.

The new commuter railway is the first stage of a metro connection between Busan and Ulsan, and stretches from Bujeon Station to Ilgwang (Gijang-gun). The line is 28.5km long and stops at 14 stations, including transfer points at Geoje (Line 3), Busan Nat’l Univ. of Edu (Line 1) and Bexco (Line 2).

The route is similar to Seoul’s Line 1 in that it shares its track with the national rail network – the first of its type outside of the Seoul Capital Area. This means that standard train passengers can also transfer to the line at stations such as Gijang, Sinhaeundae and Bexco to reach their destinations faster. You may remember that we talked about the line just over three years ago when the old section of the Donghaenambu Line was closed and replaced with the current one, resulting in the loss of the old Haeundae Station.


Click the image to view a larger version.

While the Donghae Line will make travel more convenient for residents of Gijang and commuters in the south-east of Busan, passengers will need to take note that the trains operate every 15 minutes during the peak times of 7am – 9am and 6pm – 8pm. Outside of those times the services only operate every 30 minutes, meaning anyone using the line will need to check schedules if they don’t want to risk a long wait.

The trains have four carriages, and a total of 96 services operate on weekdays, with just 88 services during the weekend. Of course prices on the line are standard fare, and you can transfer from other lines and buses with your transport card. It’s hoped that the regional rail will stimulate development in neighboring cities and reduce traffic congestion.

The next phase of the line from Ilgwang to Taehwagang (formerly Ulsan) is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2018. Once the line is open, the connection between the two cities will be 65.7km long with 22 stations.

The Kojects recap says that this is Busan metro's sixth subway line, but neither the official map (http://www.humetro.busan.kr/homepage...tion/mapeng.do) nor the urbanrail.net map show it as a subway line. Headways of every 15 minutes during peak hours and every 30 minutes at other times argue that this is not intended to be part of the subway. However, Kojects has vociferously tweeted that it is indeed the sixth line:

It's probably more accurate to think of it as a proto-commuter line (considering it'll be extended to Taehwagang Station in central Ulsan in the future) with tight metro connections within Busan. Perhaps they'll institute closer headways if they find the line is used by a lot of intra-Busan travelers, but I'd agree that it's not very metro-like itself, at the moment. Maybe they're thinking more that it's the sixth rail line to offer service within the city?

*Sigh* Those stations seem yet another example of practically design-free public infrastructure in Korea. At least it's a service expansion.

Are there any metal detecting devices in Busan subway?
As far as I know, there are no metal detecting devices in South Korea subway.
but for safety, one of advantages of hand held metal detectors is security guarantee.

Clean-up of rough Google translation

Quote:
In 10 Years, 10 Lines--Take a Train from Busan to Ulsan



In the middle of the 2020s, there will likely be 10 or more lines of urban railway in Busan. The city is intending to build an expanded urban railway network, permitting rail travel to Gangdok-do, Gyeongnam and Jinhae Yongwon-dong in Jinhae, the northern ports, and Ulsan from the urban railways in Busan's city center.

Busan announced on the 24th that it plans to include 6 urban railway lines such as the Namsan Line, KJ Line, Jungbu Line, and Sinjeong Line into the city railway network construction plan. The city set up the Urban Railway Basic Plan in 2010 in accordance with the Urban Railway Act, which is revised every five years after a feasibility study....

The new urban railway network plans include 'Hadan~Noksan Line' between Hadan and Noksan, 'Gangseo Line' between Daegu and Myongji Ocean City, 'C-Bay~Park Line' between Busan Citizen's Park and Joong-dong, 'Yonggwan Line' of Woongpyeong to Yongcheon section, and 'Sinjeongseon' of Ulsan station and an Ulsan~Mugong section.

The preliminary feasibility study results for all six routes were 0.7 or more, confirming the feasibility of the project. Among them, the Gangseo Line, the C-Bay to Park Line, and the Incheon Line will be constructed as trams running on roads, and the Shinjeong Line will be constructed as a magnetic levitation train for the first time in Busan.

The city plans to finalize construction plans next month and request approval from the Ministry of Land, Transport and Tourism; it is expected that the preliminary feasibility study results will be approved. However, costs may concer the Ministry of Strategy and Finance: each route is estimated to cost between 600 billion to 700 billion won for each route.

"All of the projects may not be approved to begin construction simultaneously", said the project manager. "The routes which should be approved are the three or four routes in the West Coast area and the metropolitan areas where the population is growing rapidly." Busan's recently-opened Donghae Nambu Line is the city's fifth. If all suggested lines begin construction immediately, the Busan Metropolitan area will be able to reach its 10th line by the middle of the 2020s.
Source: http://jedc.co.kr/sub5_2/902 (Korean)

It seems like this plan is focusing on significantly expanding the metropolitan region's rail service, as opposed to necessarily densifying it within the city itself. However, the inclusion of trams and maglev is very interesting, and the former may help to inaugurate a much-needed refocusing on non-motorized transportation within the city. Busan has yet to begin the shift-change in attitude towards streetscape development which has begun to serve Seoul quite well.

It is worth noting that one of the proposed trams (the Gangseo line on the left side of the map, situated between two rivers) runs through what is currently mostly farmland. One suspects that developers are smelling a large opportunity to build there.

I must admit surprise that a similar urge hasn't led the city to consider an eastward, coastal extention of Line 2, to meet up with the proposed eastward extension of Line 4. I'd think the city would want to do something to relieve summertime overcrowding on Busan's famous Haeundae Beach by diverting tourists to the city's other beaches further northeast on the coast.
