Dongdaegu Station, meaning "East Daegu Station", is a railway station in Daegu, South Korea. It is on the national high-speed KTX railway network, 282 km south of Seoul Station.

History[edit]

The station opened in 1962 and KTX trains on the Gyeongbu Line began services on April 1, 2004, shortly after the completion of the new building earlier that year.

Services[edit]

Dongdaegu has become the chief station for Daegu, surpassing Daegu Station.

Overground[edit]

Dongdaegu Station serves all KTX trains on the Gyeongbu Line. It also has express services and local services on the normal speed Gyeongbu Line. The station is served by the Daegu Line, a short line which connects to the Jungang Line.

Subway[edit]

The station also serves the Daegu Subway. The overground railway and subway stations are not connected directly: the Subway Line 1 station entrance lies in a park close by the railway station.
