Beautiful videos, and a great state of the art monorail system! I would love to get out there to ride the monorail!

It's a piddly wee thing, doesn't serve anywhere. last I'd heard it had quietly opened, served nowhere and nobody and was destined to make a running loss in perpetuity.. It's a shame as it'd be great for the GTX to be built with maglev tech (doesn't Tokyo have a maglev metro line?). GTX will be in tunnel and won't run onto any other lines, perfect to introduce maglev

I don't think so, unless I'm completely ignorant to it (which is possible).

You're wrong. The Maglev was scheduled to open for the first time in 2013 I believe, but it has been pushed back many time. Until recently, opening was scheduled for S2 2015, but it was recently pushed back to S1 2016. And yes, it runs to nowhere and should take big losses, in the short and middle term. In the long term, Yeongjong Island should have a bunch of casinos (Midan City, an other right near T1) and there are also residential projects, so by then, when Phase 3 is completed and the Monorail / Maglev makes a full loop, it might be profitable. But that's probably 10 years ahead of us at least.

New video regarding the GTX project :



Even if it's in Korean, you might be able to understant that there is little substance regarding "final design, funding, commitment, deadline".

This project is still uncertain, and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, is obviously using this video to raise awareness and support for the project. Gyeonggi-do is also a big supporter, but getting support from Seoul City, Incheon City, National Government and private contractors has been more difficult.

The most interesting thing is at the 1:24 mark in this video. It shows that the line B is still planned to cross Yeouido and Seoul Station to reach Cheonryanggi Station, while other recent proposals suggested veering South along line 2 to reach Samseong Station instead.


http://news.donga.com/3/03/20131010/58110498/1

In any case, this project will probably not start before 2016 or 2017 at the earliest, with line A the first one to start construction (from Kintex in Goyang to Suseo, and then through Dongtan using the Suseo HSR line)

Re. Incheon Subway Line 2

Any info on those grades? Perhaps use of zoom lenses exaggerates the slope, but that looks like at least 30 permil. With 2 car M-M trains it should be no problem though.

Is It a high-speed subway?

The terminology is always tricky for rail projects, but the short answer is yes. You might also call it suburban rapid transit / commuter rail or whatever, but anyway, that's the idea. The models for this project are Paris's RER and London's Crossrail.

As you can see, each of the 3 lines is about 50-km long, with only 7 or 8 stations, allowing for trains to pick up speed in between station and reach 180 km/h (subway usually don't do more than 80). So a trip from one end of the line to the other wouldn't take more than 30 minutes or so, while by subway, it could be almost 1h30...

Awesome project. But what makes me laugh is they keep talking about london Crossrail, which doesnt even exist yet. We dont know if it will be a success or failure. Right is to mention Paris RER which works for decades and is a good example, copying by many cities now (including London with its Crossrail).

Hey,

last week I had to go to the Incheon International Airport and I had some times to get some pictures and even a short clip of the maglev doing a test-run:






And the video:




You'll find more pictures and possibility to discuss the Incheon maglev here: http://kojects.com/kojects-forum/#!/...incheon-maglev

Kojects with the latest on the Myeonmok Line in Eastern Seoul

Quote:

On September 3, Seoul announced that it would be moving forward with plans for yet another light rail line – the Myeonmok Line which it has put out for tender.
The Myeonmok Line is part of Seoul’s plan for 10 new lines in the city which also includes the Sillim Line we recently posted about. There are 12 stations on the proposed 9.05km line and Seoul says that construction is expected to get underway at the end of 2017.
The Myeonmok Line begins at the busy Cheonyangni Station(청량리역) and makes its way east towards Myeonmok (면목역) where it meets Line 7; it then turns north and travels up to the final station at Sinnae (신내역) where it will connect with the Gyeongchun Line and the future Line 6 station.


While the area surrounding the route isn’t completely scarce of metro transport, the line will definitely bring improved public transport access for some inner areas of Dongdaemun-gu (동대문구) and Jungnang-gu (중랑구). Commuters that travel between Lines 1 and 7 should also find the link particularly helpful.
According to the request for proposal put out by the city, construction of the line will take five years including testing of the line, so it’s still quite a while off. Like many other projects, it will use a build-transfer-operate scheme. The project was originally put on the backburner back in 2011 after proposals received fell short of the requirements.

So, another question. The Myeonmok Line is called "light rail"; does that mean that it's going to be underground, at-grade, or an elevated line? Considering the value of real estate in the city, I'd expect the first, but usually that's heavy rail. Or, is this light rail because they're planning on using smaller trainsets?

I hate definitions of railways. Urban rail, light rail, commuter rail, high capacity subway, metro, express subway, ligh-capacity subway, rapid transit...

But, it's gonna be a subway line, so everything is underground. It's called "light rail" because each trainset will be short (something like 3 cars I guess), and will only serve one small neighborhood with a short distance in between each station. 12 stations for 9km.

It's getting popular in Korea. Yongin Everline, U Line (Uijeongbu), Daegu Line 3, Sillim Line, Ui Line...

I was on Yangsan bus #8 today and they had a notice that the bus route would be changing in accordance with the opening of Jeungsan Station (증산역) on Line 2 of the Busan metro. I went to the Busan metro website to verify, but couldn't find any news. Anyway, I will go this Thursday, Sep. 24 to check it out. The bus notice said the station opens that day. I'll post a couple pictures if it's open.

On September 3rd, Opening of Exit 7 at Bongeunsa Station on Line 9, directly linking the station with the mall (without having to go out and/or cross the street), like the Southern end of the COEX directly linking with Samseong Station on Line 2.

코엑스몰, 9호선 연결통로 개통 기념 이벤트

[이데일리 정태선 기자] 국내 대표 복합쇼핑몰 코엑스몰이 3일 지하철 9호선 봉은사역 7번 출구와 코엑스몰 내부 광장인 ‘아셈 플라자’를 직접 잇는 연결통로를 개통하고, 이를 기념해 9~10월 두 달간 온·오프라인 이벤트를 실시한다.




`봉은사역 7번 출구로 나오면 코엑스몰이 바로`
핑크 프리패스.

코엑스몰은 방문객 대상 3000원이 적립된 교통카드 총 3000장을 증정하는 ‘핑크 프리패스 증정 이벤트’를 진행한다.

코엑스몰 로고와 상징색인 마젠타 핑크로 디자인된 ‘핑크 프리패스’는 적립금 소진 시 전국 티머니 가맹점에서 충전해 지속적으로 사용할 수 있는 교통카드다. 연결통로 개통일인 3일부터 9일까지 평일 점심시간과 퇴근시간에 코엑스몰 내에서 열리는 룰렛게임 등 이벤트 참여를 통해 받을 수 있다.

또 코엑스몰은 9호선 전동차 객실 중 1칸을 주요 매장 실사로 꾸민 ‘핑크 트레인’을 운영, 이와 연계해 온라인 이벤트 ‘핑크 트레인을 찾아라!’를 진행한다. 핑크 트레인 탑승 인증 사진을 페이스북, 인스타그램 등 SNS에 해시태그와 함께 올리면 추첨을 통해 코엑스몰 입점 브랜드 상품권, 식사권 등을 받을 수 있다. 핑크 트레인은 8월 25일부터 두 달간 매일 왕복 8회 운행한다.

9월부터 두 달간 코엑스몰 일대에는 연일 풍성한 가을 문화축제가 펼쳐져 방문객들에게 다채로운 즐거움을 선사할 예정이다.

오는 18일부터 10월 11일까지 코엑스몰에서는 구매고객 대상 추첨을 통해 최고급 세단 등을 증정하는 ‘가을 경품 대축제’가 진행된다.

17일 대한민국 공예 대전을 시작으로 한일축제 한마당, 한국 국제 아트 페어, 서울 토이게임쇼, 서울 국제 도서전, 플라워 아트쇼 등이 줄지어 열린다.

특히 10월 1일부터 4일까지 열리는 강남 페스티벌은 패션 페스티벌, K팝 콘서트, 강남 그랜드 세일 등 다양한 콘텐츠로 내국인뿐 아니라 외국인 관광객들의 발길까지 끌 것으로 예상된다.

코엑스몰 관계자는 “9호선 봉은사역과 코엑스몰을 잇는 연결통로가 개통되면 서울 서남권 및 동남권의 고객들이 좀 더 쉽게 코엑스몰을 방문할 수 있게 된다”며 “편리해진 교통으로 방문객이 더욱 늘어날 것으로 예상되는 만큼 좀 더 많은 분들이 재미있고 즐겁게 쇼핑을 즐길 수 있도록 다양한 이벤트를 계속 하겠다”고 말했다.

While Kojects blog says this station will open today (2015.09.24):

The Wikipedia entry for this station lists it opening 2015.12.
