I am thrilled to see the urban maglev at the airport in test runs! This is the second slow/medium speed maglev in the world, the first being in Nagoya Japan. I hope it proves successful and they can bring the initial construction and installation costs down.

I am surprised thou at the relatively low capacity of the Daegu system. Like all transit systems it's not the current train lengths but rather their potential. In Vancouver new SkyTrain stations are built at 70 meters and only run 36 meter trains {although frequency is up to every 90 seconds each way} but they number of trains can be doubled to use the current station length and all are built to be able to be easily expanded to 100 meters to accomodate 3 36 meter trains if ever needed in the future.

How large are the current trains they will run and most importantly how large are the stations........the potential pphpd capacity of the system?

Thanks.
The length of Daegu monotrail train is about 46m and the length of station platform is about 45~48m, so practically there's no room to extend. I think the current capacity is enough and rather Daegu local government would worry that the monorail would fill it up with passengers.

Tbh the subway only carries about a third of it's projected passengers a day. I almost always have a seat when I ride it (and theres room to increase the car length and frequency). The preview videos I've seen show 3car trains (I'll look up the link for you)

For those interested in the loading capacity of a monorail system, this may give you an idea. I suppose the Daegu Line 3 can be classified as "medium" (?):

Here are some pics of the trainsets (indeed 3 car), apologies if they have been posted previous:

Except for the first trainset, which will be assembled by Hitachi, the remaining 27 will be produced by Woojin Industrial Systems.

Thanks for the info guys, much appreciated.

This line seems like it will be exactly the same capacity as Vancouver's new Canada Line which opened in 2009. The stations are 50 meters and use, unlike the other 2 SkyTrain Lines, standard Metro rail cars. The general guidelines is if a subway car is running each way every 2 minutes it has capacity of about 5,000 pphpd.

Vancouver's Canada Line and your new monorail will have cpacity of 12,500 pphpd.......a medium capacity system.

Seoul metro to get 9 new lines

The Seoul Metropolitan Government announced yesterday that it will invest 8.5 trillion won ($7.58 billion) on nine new light rail and subway lines by 2025.

The new tracks, which will total 85.4 kilometers (53.1 miles), are to serve areas that are currently difficult to access by public transit.

An initiative to build seven new light rail lines was initiated in 2007. It was delayed for years for political and financial reasons, but now has been reborn as a nine-track plan. Two additional lines were added for Wirye New Town in Songpa District, southern Seoul.

Line No. 9 will be expanded, with a 3.8 kilometer section added between VHS Hospital and Godeok District.

Of the projected 8.5 trillion won required, the central government will kick in 1.1 trillion won and the city government will invest 3.5 trillion won. The remainder will come from the private sector. The city government has set the basic fare at 1,050 won, the same as it is for other lines.

When the initial plan was announced in 2007 by former Mayor Oh Se-hoon, he said that different fares would apply, but current Mayor Park Won-soon said yesterday that that would only benefit private investors.

“We can’t put too much of a burden on the citizens because these lines are part of the city government’s welfare programs,” Mayor Park said in a press briefing at City Hall.

Private investors are saying that the city should cover the deficit that could stem from the low fares. “We forecast that we’ll need to provide about 3.5 to 4.5 billion won in support to private investors per year,” said Yoon Jun-byeong, director of the city government’s Urban Transportation Department. “Because these lines will be completed at different times, the city government won’t have any trouble supporting the investors.”

As of this month, only the Myeonmok and Seobu lines have attracted private investors. The city government will submit the plan to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport by the end of September. It said the ministry will likely approve the plan next year.

It's kind of strange; I know that's only a point to point drawing, but unless the new lines are going to be weirdly unintuitively routed, it seems like most of what will be constructed isn't "new lines', but extensions and short tunnels between existing stations. Most of them clearly need to be done (especially the lines through Gangnam and Jamsil, and Yeongdeungpo and Gwanak), but I don't know if they count as new lines.

Searching in korean I found some maps with the new lines route.

Here http://cafe366.daum.net/_c21_/bbs_se...20110826192155 you can see at first the Myeonmok Line, next a combination of Myeonmok line, Dongbuk line and non proposed (?) Ui line from Sinseol-dong to Ui. And the Sillim line.

Here http://blog.naver.com/PostView.nhn?b...o=120121552360 you can see more images about the Dongbuk Line project, similar to Line 4 of Busan Subway.

But this information is a bit old. Here a maps from 7/2013 with (I suppose) the correct plan:

Thanks for that, Sr Horn. It looks as though they discuss either commuter lines or the GTX project further down in the article. It'd be good to see something happening with that.

Hi!

I want a good website with all timetables from Korail Network. For example, there's no result if I search for DMC to Munsan train services in Gyeongui line

Something like Hyperdia in Japan?

Thanks!

It's not ideal, but it gives you a timetable for all stations you click on in the Seoul area.
