The Daegok–Sosa Line is a future subway line scheduled to open in late 2017. The line would have between five to eight stations.

History[edit]

The line will consist of 17.8 km or 19.6 km of track from Sosa to Daegok. This would connected Sosa with the Sosa–Wonsi Line through Bucheon, Gimpo Airport, and into Ilsan in Goyang City. The line will have transfers available for Line 7 at Bucheon Stadium Station, Lines 5, 9, and Arex at Gimpo Airport Station, and Line 3 and the Gyeongui Line at Daegok Station. Construction was scheduled to begin in the second half of 2012 for a completion date of 2017.

Further plans[edit]

Tentative plans foresee the upgrade and incorporation of the Gyowae Line, currently a single-track non-electrified line without passenger service that connects Neunggok Station (with a junction just before Daegok Station) and Uijeongbu Station in Uijeongbu. The Uijeongbu–Daegok–Sosa-Wonsi Line would then provide orbital metro service as a northern semicircle around Seoul, complementing the southern semicircle formed by the Bundang Line and the Suin Line.
