Seoul Subway Line 9


Free Trial Rides for The Public




According to some news, Seoul Subway Line 9 will open in June, not in May because Seoul City Government and Metro 9 coporation can't agree on fares till now. Seoul City Goverment offered 1000 Won( 900 Won if you use Transpotation Card) but Metro 9 coporation wanted 1582 Won. In case of not being able to make an agreenment, Seoul City Government said, they will make an effort to open the subway in the late of May, with the fee(1000 Won) projected by Seoul City Government and keep negotiating.

Yeah, Busan Subway is the only subway in Korea which does announcements in 4 languages: Korean, English, Japanese, Chinese. Other than Pusan, announcements in most subways are Korean and English.

All Metro Stations in Seoul to Have Screen Doors This Year

Quote:
All metro stations in Seoul will have platform screen doors by the end of the year, Seoul City said Tuesday.

So far, the doors have been installed at 92 stations in total, but installations at the remaining 173 stations have been delayed for budgetary reasons.

The city expects the doors to cause a decrease in the number of people committing suicide by jumping in front of the train and to make underground air cleaner.

``We received the approval to use a supplementary budget from the National Assembly last month,'' the city said in a statement. ``The installations at all Seoul subway stations will be completed by the end of the year, a year earlier than the original target of December 2010.''

According to Seoul Metro, 272 people fell on the subway tracks in the capital between January 2004 and August 2008 ― 172 bekillng killed after being hit by a train. Of them, 239 were attempts at suicide, while the others were accidents.

The Ministry of Environment confirmed last year that the amount of fine dust found in platform air was twice as much as the average in other above-ground public facilities.

'Elevators, Not Lifts, Needed for Disabled at Metro Stations'


Quote:
The nation's human rights agency said that motor-driven ``wheelchair stair lifts'' at metro stations, which physically disabled people use to move up and down stairs, only embarrass them and cause accidents. Therefore, the government and subway authorities should install more ``elevators'' instead, the National Human Rights Commission said Monday.

It sent the recommendation to the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Family Affairs and other related ministries and agencies, saying the stair lifts are of little help.

Currently, those who wish to use the facility must press a button to call a station attendant at the end of the stairs and wait for the crew to operate the device. The lift moves up or down while sounding an alarm the whole time to make travelers aware of its operation.

The commission, however, said disabled people claim the alarm sound makes people look at them and makes them feel embarrassed. ``They know other people mean no harm but they take it very personally sometimes,'' a commission spokeswoman said. Since the lift moves at a slow pace, the embarrassment they feel is long, giving them additional stress, she added.

Moreover, the lifts can be dangerous. The safety bar often does not work and since 2006, eight people have fallen out of their wheelchairs during the process, and one died.

The human rights agency suggested that more elevators should be built for the disabled. However, considering that installing elevator needs time and huge amount of budget, the commission advised that all staff be ``reeducated'' to respect and be more sensitive toward disabled people first.

The wheelchair stair lift was first adopted in 1988 in preparation for the Seoul Olympics at the Sport Complex station line No.2. It was once considered one of the most disabled-friendly and cheap devices, and there are 1,146 installed nationwide.

Disabled people's circles welcomed the announcement. ``The wheel chair lifts were designed for hand-operated ones. These days many people use electronic ones or little scooters, which do not fit on the lift,'' Jung Ji-young, spokeswoman for Disabled People's International Seoul, said.

``There were many people saying they would rather not go out or meet other people because such public transportation facilities do not work well. We have kept requesting more elevators,'' she added.

More Bus Information Boards to Be Installed


Quote:
Passengers of the Seoul Metro will soon be able to check bus transfer information in subway stations.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government on Sunday announced, "For the convenience of citizens who transfer from subway to bus, we plan to install eight bus information boards in Seoul Station and the Gwanghwamun Station by September of this year. We plan to expand the number of boards in the stations with greater demand for transfers to buses."

The bus information boards will provide real-time traffic information on when the next buses will arrive. In addition, the Seoul Metropolitan Government plans to increase the number of bus information boards installed in bus stops from the current 76 to 168 by the end of this year, and install an additional 350 by next year.

Gwangmyeong Station


Gwangmyeong Station is a train station in Gwangmyeong, South Korea. It is on the national high-speed KTX railway network, 22km south of Seoul Station. The location of Gwangmyeong Station was finalised on October 14, 1994, though construction did not begin until December 1999. The planned name of "Namseoul Station" (literally meaning South Seoul Station) was changed to "Gwangmyeong Station" on August 28, 2000 and the station building was completed on March 27, 2004. The station opened on April 1, 2004 for KTX trains and the Yongsan-Gwangmyeong Shuttle on Line 1 began operating on December 15, 2006. source

When this station was completed there was no shuttle train, but for the convenience of seoul residents nearby south of Han River and Gwangmyeong, the flatform for shuttle train was installed later. Yongsan-Gwangmyeong Shuttle was originally 1 train with 10 cars, but due to low demands it was reduced to 1 train with 4 cars in Dec, 2008 and the route also was reduced to Yeongdeungpo-Gwangmyeong from Yongsan-Gwangmyeong.

Yeongdeungpo - Sindorim - Guro - Gasan Digital Complex - Doksan - Geumcheongu-office - Gwangmyeong

Beautiful stations, especially the KTX one. So the southern extension of the HSL is under construction now, which will finally link Seoul and Busan with high speed rail?

Yes. Daegu-Pusan section will be completed by the end of 2010, then Seoul-Pusan will be linked by high speed rail.

Be curious about these photos:If the main theme of those public decorations (or just during the period of special exhibition ?!) in subway station is related to the Gwangju Incident which had broken out in May, 1980 ?!

The stations look very clean and tidy. Is it always like that? Do they employ a lot of cleaning staff or are public places in South Korea in general so clean?

Not all of the pictures are related to May 18.




This station(Culture Complex station) has a hall that's related to May 18.




This station (Geumnamno5-ga station) is related to Gwangju Student Independece Movement




This station (KimDaeJung Convention Center station) has Human Right Theme Hall.

And other station in the pictures have several theme halls seperately.
