I think that GTX as something akin to Crossrail or Gautrain (okay, that comparison is a bit of a stretch to make).

If built, it would definitely relieve the metro system of passengers and thus ease congestion.

As far as I know it's all underground. To achieve 100km/h average operation speed, it requires straight route so that above-ground route is no option, according to the plan.

GTX is sort of a suburban mass transit, so you can compare it with other suburban rail transits around the world.

Gov't to Install Unified Transport Payment System

Quote:
Commuters will need only one card to use public transportation anywhere in Korea starting in 2013.

The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs on Monday announced rules for a standardized payment system that will allow commuters to use one public transportation card to go anywhere in the country.

The ministry will begin installing the new payment system in Seoul, Gyeonggi Province, Busan and Gwangju in June this year with an aim to have it ready in 2013.

Currently transportation cards are limited to certain regions, creating headaches for commuters who have to buy new tickets whenever they board a subway or bus outside the jurisdiction of their card.

Excellent updates. I am liking the brand-new rolling stock and liveries.

A few opinions on the Gyeongchun Express renders:

1. Are they still currently in the process of choosing what the express will look like?

2. My favourite renders for the express are 5-1, 6-1, and 7-1.

3. I've noticed that some of the rolling stock there look similar to the Hyundai-Rotem stock running on Irish and Malasyan railroads. Nice, nice.

Well I don't know the details about it. Someone says they will choose it among the designs, and someone assumes that there're 8 renderings and korail purchases 8 trainset (64 trains) so this means each trainset would have different design.

Mine are 6-1 and 8-1.

you are right. It's very similar to them, especially the front.

서울지하철 9호선이 당초 송파구 오륜동 올림픽공원에서 강동구 둔촌동 서울보훈병원까지로 연장된다.

서울시는 지하철9호선을 서울보훈병원까지 1.5㎞ 연장하는 내용의 도시철도 기본계획변경안에 대해 최근 국토해양부로부터 승인 받았다고 5일 밝혔다. 이에 따라 지하철9호선은 총 연장이 당초 36.0㎞에서 37.5㎞로 늘어난다.

지하철9호선 중 1단계 구간(김포공항∼논현동) 25.5㎞는 지난해 7월 24일 개통돼 운행 중이고 2단계 구간(논현동∼종합운동장) 4.5㎞는 지난해 6월 착공, 2013년 준공 예정이다. 이어 종합운동장∼올림픽공원역 간 3단계 구간 6.0㎞는 지난해 말 시공사가 선정됐다.

서울시는 지하철9호선 기본계획 변경안에서 올림픽공원역과 보훈병원역 사이에 역사 1곳을 추가로 설치하기로 했다. 특히 올림픽공원역∼보훈병원역 연장 공사를 3단계 구간과 동시에 진행해 2015년 말 완공할 계획이라고 서울시 측은 설명했다.

서울시는 이를 위해 3단계 잔여 구간과 보훈병원까지의 연장 구간을 2개공구로 나눠 기존 공구와 같은 설계·시공 일괄 입찰방식으로 조만간 발주해 오는 7∼8월께 공사에 들어갈 계획이다.

이번 지하철9호선 3단계 구간이 연장됨에 따라 사업비도 2000억여원 늘어나게 됐다.

서울시 관계자는 “서울을 동서로 가로지르는 지하철9호선 전 구간이 완공되면 강동지역과 강서지역에서 강남권으로의 접근성이 크게 개선되는 것은 물론 두 지역의 개발도 한층 탄력을 받을 것”이라고 말했다.

Seoul Subway Line 9 to purchase more trains.

Seoul city government announced that they purchased more trains to serve more train services on Line 9. With the additional trains (12 trainsets, 48 trains), the express train interval would be 7~10 minutes from current 20 minutes, and the normal train interval would be 5 minutes from current 6.7 minutes. It's projected to be operational on October 2011.

서울시는 지하철 9호선 차량운행을 확대하고자 22일 전동차 제작업체인 현대로템㈜과 전동차 추가도입 계약을 체결했다고 24일 밝혔다. 새로 도입하는 전동차는 4량짜리 12편성(총 48량)으로, 2011년 10월 운행에 투입되면 9호선 전체 차량은 4량짜리 36편성으로 늘어나게 된다.

증차가 되면 급행열차 간격은 현재 20분에서 7~10분으로, 일반열차 간격은 평균 6.7분에서 최소 5분으로 단축될 예정이다.

2009년 7월24일 개통한 지하철 9호선은 서울 지하철 중 최단기간인 개통 50일 만에 이용 승객 1000만명을 돌파했고 하루 평균 25만명 이상이 이용하고 있다. 이 때문에 출·퇴근시 급행열차의 혼잡도가 200%를 초과하는 등 이용률이 높다.

이번에 계약한 전동차는 현재 운행중인 차량과 같은 차량으로 16개월 동안 설계 및 제작 기간을 거쳐 2011년 7월에 첫 편성이 납품될 예정이다. 납품된 전동차는 성능시험기관에서 각종 성능 시험 및 본선 시운전을 거쳐 2011년 10월에 운행된다.

시 관계자는 “이용승객이 크게 늘어나 불편을 겪고 있는 지하철 9호선 고객을 위해 전동차를 추가 도입하는 것”이라며 “현재처럼 4량이 1편성으로 운행되지만 배차간격이 줄어들어 시민들이 전동차를 기다리는 시간이 단축될 것”이라고 말했다.

Isnt line 9 privately ran?

And its been a while since I moved out of Korea. Is subway transfers free? Since all of them are ran by different companies. Korail, Seoul gov, etc...I have taken subway in Seoul before but I was very young and my mom always bought the tickets. I have no idea how this system works. It goes by distance traveled. But do you have to pay again before transferring to new line?
