Daejeon Subway Line 1 is a subway line in Daejeon, South Korea. Its line color is green. It is 22.6 km (14.0 mi) long with 22 stations. It is the first of five planned lines for the Daejeon Metropolitan Subway.[2]

The first section was opened on March 16, 2006, the second on April 17, 2007. The track leads from Banseok Station in Yuseong-gu to Panam Station in Dong-gu. The construction of Line 2 was planned to begin in 2008, but was delayed because government funding has been diverted to other projects.[3]

There have been plans to build Line 2 as a magnetic levitation train similar to the German M-Bahn or the Japanese HSST.[4] The current technical design, however, is not open to the public.[3]

The second line is set to have route finalization completed in 2015 and to have a test portion of the line opened by 2018. A full system will be operational 2021 or later. The train will be on ground level as well as elevated. [5]

Formation[6][edit]

In 1991, the Daejeon Metropolitan City Urban Railway Construction Plan was established. In January 1994, the Subway Planning Unit was established. In February 1996, the basic plan for subway construction, which links the old city center of Daejeon metropolitan city with the new city center, was confirmed. The subway construction headquarters was established in April 1996, and construction of the first line of Daejeon subway line was started in October of the same year.
