New high-speed station for Daegu
Thursday, December 15, 2016
DAEGU City announced on December 13 that it had completed the basic design of the new Seodaegu KTX station to be built in western Daegu after it was approved by the Korean Ministry of Land Transportation
KTX, Suseo SRT and Daegu regional rail services will be accessible from the station which is expected to open in 2020. The design has a “ship-like” theme, and the majority of the station building will be built over the tracks. It is hoped the construction of the station will increase development in the area
So, to keep track of all the projects regarding urban rail in Korea, I have listed them all below. Not quite all of them, but those under construction or with realistic chances of being built at some point in the not so far future. I've also added to a link to an article about each project which has a good picture of what the extension will look like. The article itself might be old or not relevant, so just take a look at the map if you want:
. . .
Daegu metropolitan railroad: a project mostly using the original Gyeongbu Line to bring commuter rail service in and around Daegu from Gumi to Gyeongsan. New stations to be built as part of this project are Seodaegu, Sagok, Buksam, Waegwan Industrial Complex. Construction started last year with an opening planned for 2023.
Daegu subway Line 4: this is a major project, but still under early planning. It is once again a circular line, which hasn’t been finalized yet. Construction will probably not start within the next few years

Daegu Metro Line 3, an automated monorail system is fun to watch and ride and see the city from. The Geumho River Monorail Bridge is spectacular to view!
Right now, this project is still in early planning phase, with local officials hoping to ask for feasibility study by next year. So nothing has been approved yet and no funds confirmed for the project. Even in the best case scenario (which is unlikely), we would be at least 5 years away from the start of construction.
