I also want to see less Seoul-centric but don't expect it during my life.

I think only Pyongyang is a contender for decentralization on the peninsula.

Well, the Gyeongjeon Line is upgraded step by step. In 2014 started the works for Masan - central Busan branch with a new tunnel under the Gimhae Airport. Completion around 2020. http://frdb2.wo.to/552.htm

Coming year, 2016, the new track between Jinju and Suncheon will enter in service. http://frdb2.wo.to/553.htm

And don't know what is the situation on the totally new alignment on west side of the line. I mean the new track between Suncheon and Mokpo. http://frdb2.wo.to/444.htm

I wish I can see a 300 km/h HSR Busan-Seoul-Pyongyang in a united Korea in my lifetime.

This line is seemingly under construction but is practically suspended , considering that government put 0.1 million dollar a year into the construction.

I noticed something yesterday while riding the KTX. I often ride from Ulsan to Dong Daegu (울산-동대구) and every time I ride it gets to 300 kmh for literally a couple of minutes. The trip between those two stations is 24 minutes. I haven't ridden outside that track for a couple years.

They don't show how fast you're going until it hits 250 kmh. They show it on the TV screen in each train car.

I've ridden Seoul-Daejeon a few times and I'm sure it hit 300 kmh longer than a few minutes. Does anyone know how long the KTX is actually at 300 kmh?

It'll depend on the service. The (부산-울산-새경주) Busan-Ulsan-New Geongju-DongDaegu service probably won't hit 300k, whilst the non-stop services doing the same route will have a substantial portion at top speed.

"Only saw"? I've seen so few videos of the HEMU-430x at speed, and from the sounds of it, it must've been going near its top speed!

Thank you for the videos .

I wanted to see KTX trial run because I'd seen HEMU-430X several times(over 10 times) but KTX once.

I also think it looks quite fast from the sound of it, but I doubt that it hits top speed in this video because the location capturing the video is not the 400km/h test section installed on Honam HSR(Gongju~Iksan and Iksan~Geongeup).

I'm quite surprised by how loud it is even from a distance. Looks like the builders didn't include sound-insulation into the ballastless slab track construction.

Well, considering that the tracks are designed for 350kph running outside of a few test sections, and that 350kph is plenty fast to ensure fast transit across the whole peninsula, I'm sure they didn't think it'd be worth the extra expense.

Noise regulation is, of course, provided :

Quote:
It should be under 65dB in day time and 60dB in night time.

(source from Ministery of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation)
Quote:
According to the results of environmental effects evaluation for noise and vibration, the adequate noise reduction measures such as noise barrier are established to the places estimated to exceed noise strandard below :

- Noise Standard(Leq) : 60dB(A)
- Vibration Standard(LeQ) : 60dB(V)
