Date Announced For Southern Bundang Extension

A tentative date for the opening of the next extension on the Bundang line has been announced.

Trains are expected to begin operating on the southern extension from Jukjeon(죽전) to Giheung(기흥) from the 28th of December. Although Giheung will be “future-proofed” for express trains with an island platform the same as Ori(오리) and Jukjeon(죽전) stations, there is still no official word on whether such a service will be possible. Trains on this section will run every 8 minutes during peak hours and every 12.5 minutes during off peak hours.

The full extension, which will eventually reach all the way to Suwon Station is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013. You can read more details about the latest extension here.
