I did go to Jeungsan Station (증산역) in Yangsan (양산) the day it opened, Sep. 24. I arrived about 10:45 and saw a bunch of guys in suits and was wondering what was going on. I had to wait for the bus to leave at 11:20 and at 11:00, a guy in a suit came in. He must have been the president of the Busan metro. He did a little ceremony with the station manager and toured the station. When he walked past, the guys holding the red and blue signs said something, but I don't know what it was. I couldn't figure out what these signs are saying and my coworker couldn't translate it for me. If anyone knows, reply here.

All photos are mine.

Above the ad in tiny print, you can see 8 and 72. Those are the buses that stop here. I'm sure in a few years, the city will have to add more buses since they are building a lot of apartments in the area.

This is the bus stop. You can see the city (Yangsan 양산) had to take a sign from somewhere else and then overlay a new one for this stop.

Well, I'm not a native speaker, but from what I understand, these people are staging a protest because they believe the station is under-staffed and unable to operate fully, and thus demand for additional workforce to operate the station.

No info about possible new lines? Once Gwangju had a quite extensive plan for its metro network, but now after finishing the first and the only line, it stopped for many years. There are not even any rumors any more about new lines.

Gwangju plans for line 2 are still going on.


(https://namu.wiki/w/%EA%B4%91%EC%A3%...98%B8%EC%84%A0)

Here are the final plans. Line 2 is the circular line, which will be built in three phases. 1st phase (in red), then 2nd phase (in blue), which would complete the circle loop ; then and a southern extension (in purple. There are also two other branches (in brown and orange), which have kind of been scrapped by the government (which will finance parts or most of the project) for now, but still being considered for possible future exension.

The line would be a very near-surface subway line (the first of its kind in Korea), aligned with main roads in the city.
(http://www.yonhapnews.co.kr/bulletin...142700054.HTML)

The city had planned to start construction in late 2016, but recently admitted they will probably be unable to start building before 2017. Completion of the first phase targeted for 2025
(http://www.hani.co.kr/arti/society/area/709403.html)

Despite these milestone targets, there are still discussions going on, so we could see this project being delayed even further.

However, contrary to what you might expect, this project is going on and definitely not dead.

October 31st saw two significant improvements to Seoul's Subway system :

1 / Opening of Yadang Station on Gyeongui-Jungang Line


http://www.etoday.co.kr/news/section...?idxno=1224939


http://m.blog.naver.com/yuns609/220104142389

The station will be conveniently located in Yadang a medium-sized new city between Paju and Ilsan (Goyang), Northwest of Seoul, on the Gyeonggui-Jungang Line.



2 / Opening of the underground transfer tunnel at Noryangjin station


http://www.enewstoday.co.kr/news/art...l?idxno=433817

Line 9 and Line 1 intersect at Noryangjin, but the station had very weird configuration : there was only one exit at Line 1, and to transfer between Line 1 and 9, riders had to leave the subway system, get out onto the street, walk about 300 meters, and get back in the system again. Not only was it annoying, but for single-fare passengers (the few who don't use T-Money or similar systems), they had to buy another ticket and couldn't transfer at Noryangjin. Some subway maps even had Noryangjin marked as two separate stations rather than as one transfer station.

With this tunnel, it will cut the distance between stations from 300 meters to 150 meters, without having to get onto the street and without needing to pass through the subway gates again to transfer.

Kojects with a more detailed article about the Noryangjin project : http://kojects.com/2015/10/31/noryan...finally-opens/

Noryangjin Station Transfer Tunnel Finally Opens

31st Oct 2015|



This morning the Noryangjin Station transfer tunnel between Seoul’s Line 1 and 9 finally opened, more than six years after Line 9 first began operating.

If you’ve ever had to make a transfer at Noryangjin Station, you’ll know that up until now doing so was pretty annoying due to the lack of an internal transfer tunnel. This meant that you had to go outside the station and walk to the other station, as well as go through two sets of gates, of course scanning your transport card twice in the process.


Up until now passengers have had to leave the station to transfer between stations.

Of course the gates were still set up so that it counted as a transfer despite leaving the station, but nevertheless it was a pain not being sheltered from the elements and also having to run up and down two sets of stairs at the Line 1 station for some platforms due to the station design. Commuters using a one-use ticket or commuter pass weren’t able to transfer at this station without paying again.

Seoul says that the new transfer tunnel cuts the distance between stations from 300 meters to 150 meters and reduces the transfer time by two minutes. While a couple of minutes may not seem like much, it can mean the difference between waiting quite a while if you miss some trains, particularly some of the more infrequent services on Line 1 or the popular express trains on Line 9.

Like at all Metro 9 stations, passengers will still need to pass through a transfer gate. There are also four elevators and two escalators connecting the stations.

According to Yonhap news, Seoul Metropolitan City says that the new connection cost 19.5 billion won and will benefit the 27000 commuters that transfer between the stations everyday. One-use ticket and commuter pass card holders can now transfer normally like at any other station.

The opening of the tunnel leaves Seoul Station as the only station in the city where you still need to leave the station to transfer to one of the other metro lines (Gyeongui Line) at the same station.

Goodbye to Noryangjin’s Pedestrian Overpass

Alongside the lead up to the opening of the new transfer connection, Seoul has also been saying goodbye to Noryangjin’s famous pedestrian overbridge after it was decided earlier this year to remove it. The bridge which was built 35 years ago, stretched over the busy Noryangjin-ro and had become a defining character of the area in itself. Connecting the main station area with numerous academies, many people will have fond (or not so fond) memories of using the bridge when going to study or sit civil service exams here. A huge message board was even set up for residents to say their goodbyes.

Despite this, the overpass was not very accessible for the elderly or disabled. It was also in poor condition and in 2013 was given a “C” grade following an inspection. Many complaints were received about how the bridge shook from the constant traffic flowing under it and keeping it maintained was costing more than 10 million won a year.


Seoul says goodbye to the Noryangjin Overpass after 35 years.

According to Dongjak-gu, the estimated number of pedestrians that used the overpass was 2820 an hour. A new pedestrian crossing has been built directly under where the overpass was and Line 1 users can also use the new transfer tunnel via the Line 9 entrance to get the station.

The photo of the overpass below taken just before its removal shows a sign reading in Korean, “35 years…thanks for holding out so long!”— probably could have used a better choice of words there.


The new pedestrian crossing which has been installed next where the overpass used to be. Image: Dongjak-gu

The final plans for the Indeogwon-Suwon Line have been disclosed to the public. Here is the final map. Compared to earlier plans, it will be fairly longer, with 17 stops and a length of 34 kilometers. It will stretch from Ingeogwon Station in Anyang all the way to the new city of Dongtan. It will stretch along the Northern side of Suwon, bringing much needed subway service to the area. Interestingly, the latest change included a little "hook" at Heungdeok station, to link Gwanggyo New Tow to the rest of the town.

Subway transport in Suwon should also be improved with
- The southern extension of the Sinbundang Line (the extension to Gwanggyo will open this February, and a further extension all across Suwon in a couple of years)
- Suwon Line 1 (which will actuall be a tram)
- The completion of the Suin Line (in 2017 or 2018)

Daejeon Subway Line 3 to start construction next year

Daejeon Subway Line 3 (which will probably be built before line 2) has just pass the Korea Development Institute (KDI) feasibility evaluation, and will move forward, with construction scheduled by late 2016, and opening of the line's 1st phase by 2022.

It should be noted that Line 3 is actually more of a commuter rail / urban rail line, and the first section has just 6 stations spread across 35 kilometers. If phase 2 is completed, the line will be 106 kilometer-long and will also be known as the Chungcheong Urban Rail (not a definitive name).

Here is the line in red (only the Phase 1 section is shown). Line 1 is in blue, and line 2 (circular line, in green) hasn't begun construction yet.



And here is what the line should look like if phase 2 is completed, truly a "regular" rail road :
