The Daegok–Sosa Line is a future subway line scheduled to open in 2021. The line would have between five and eight stations.

History[edit]

The line will consist of 18.36 km of track from Sosa to Daegok.[1][2] This would connected Sosa with the Sosa–Wonsi Line through Bucheon, Gimpo Airport, and into Ilsan in Goyang City, with a total travel time of 16 minutes.[1] 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-Jungang Line at Daegok Station. Construction is scheduled to begin in March 2016 with a completion date of 2021.[1][2] The construction is done under a build-lease-transfer concept and is carried out by Hyundai Engineering & Construction.[1][2]

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.[citation needed]
