However, the link from there to the project page itself is broken. This probably means the project has been scrapped. (That seems to happen a lot with monorail projects.)
I thought Sokcho is Seocho-Gu in Gang-nam cause I've never heard of Sokcho monorail project. Some results from web-searching say Sokcho monorail project is..... I don't know where it is. The only news about it is this. In short if Sokcho monorail would be built, K-AGT will be suitable to this line. No further information about this project.

It's a shame the proposed Gangnam monorail project in Seoul was dropped. That area is congested and densely populated, and some type of circulator would have been very useful.
But the result of economic evaluation was not good enough to move ahead with the project.

Pyongyang has trams, trolleybuses and two metro lines. Pyongyang-Metro.com has as much detail as anyone has been able to piece together.

FarRail Tours, a German company which runs railfan tours to various unusual destinations, including North Korea, has some photo galleries showing metro trains, trams and trolleybuses in Pyongyang.

Chongjin reportedly has a tramway, while several towns and cities are known to have trolleybus systems, including Wonsan and Sinuiji.

Unfortunately No tram or tramway in South Korea since 1968. Now Ul-San Metropolitan City has a plan to build tram-type LRT.

More Reserved Seating on Subways

Quote:
Seoul subways will have more reserved seats from March.


Signs for pregnant women, the disabled and mothers with children are posted over newly reserved seats in a subway train.

Seoul Metro, which runs subway lines 1-4, said Monday it will designate seven more seats for pregnant women, mothers with children and the disabled in each passenger car of subway lines 2-4 from March 1 next to current seats for the aged, with pictograms symbolizing the pregnant, the disabled and mothers with children. Lower hand straps will also be installed. Currently, each train has 12 seats reserved for the elderly out of 54 seats in each subway car.

The seats will be different from current reserved ones for the elderly. ``Instead of leaving the reserved seats for the elderly vacant all the time, other passengers may use the seats but must surrender them to those in need,'' a Seoul Metro official said.

Seoul Metro has been test-operating the special seats in trains on subway line No. 1 since December 2007. According to its survey, 63 percent of 4,286 participants supported the test-operation of the seats and 94 percent of supporters were in favor of expanding the designated seats to other subway lines.

However, the expansion might draw objections from younger passengers. Seoul Metro emphasizes it is not expanding seating for the aged.

``We designated the special seats because it's not easy for the disabled or the pregnant to occupy the seats for the elderly,'' Kim Myung-ran of Seoul Metro said. ``These seats are the seats of concession and care for those who need them.''

The subway operator will promote the new seating arrangement through its Web site, posters and train announcements

All Seoul Subway Stations to Have Safety Doors

Quote:
Seoul City said Monday that it will set up protective screen doors on platforms of every subway station by the end of this year ― to prevent falls and suicide attempts and to improve air quality ― one year sooner than its previous plan.

The city government has allotted 199 billion won for the project. The plan change has come after four people were run over by subway trains and died Saturday.

Out of the 265 stations on subway lines 1 through 8, 89 have screen doors, while construction is underway at another 151. Subway line No. 9, which will open in May, will have protective doors at every station.

On Saturday, a 71-year-old Kim was run over and killed by an above ground subway in eastern Seoul. Kim, who bathed and clothed corpses at a hospital, was on his way to bring the body of another train accident victim who had been killed earlier in the morning to a funeral service center. Two men, one in his 30s and the other in his 50s jumped in front of subway trains and were run over at City Hall Station and Hansung University Station, respectively.

Are there rally that many suicide attempts? It looks like Seol citizens were very depressed.
How many cases d'u have in a year?
