In 2016 Seoul City plans to open a 11.4 km (7.1 mi) Light Rapid Transit line from Ui-dong to Sinseol Dong in northern Seoul. The line is expected to carry 110,000 passengers a day and will have 13 stations. It will connect to Line 4 at Sungshin Women's University, Line 6 at Bomun and Line 1 & 2 at Sinseol Dong.[1] The last (northernmost) station will be in Ui-dong (approximate pronunciation: Ooh-Ee) hence the name of the line.

The line is under construction from September 10, 2009 to end of 2016.

The line will use a dedicated fleet of trains built by Rotem, a member of Hyundai Motor Group. The fleet will consist of 2-car trains.
