Incheon Subway Line 2 is a 27 station subway line 29.2-kilometer (18.1 mi) from Oryu-dong in Seo-gu to Incheon Grand Park.,[1] part of the Incheon Subway system. The line is also included as a part of the overall Seoul Metropolitan Subway network; Juan Station has a free transfer with Seoul Subway Line 1, Geomam Station connects with the AREX Line to Incheon International Airport and Seoul Station, and Seongnam will eventually have a free transfer with Seoul Subway Line 7.

Line 2 has aboveground sections north of Asiad Stadium and east of Namdong-gu Office.

History[edit]

  • June 26, 2009: Construction begins. The price of building the line was 2 trillion KRW.
  • Early 2016: Trial runs begin.
  • July 30, 2016: The line opens, after seven years of construction.[2][3]

Line 2 was planned to open in August 2014,[4] but the opening date was pushed back to July 30, 2016.

Rolling stock and signaling[edit]

The line uses 37 two-car trains, all of which were built in 2013 by Hyundai Rotem, a member of Hyundai Motor Group.[4][5] They are similar to the Canada Line cars in Vancouver, Canada.

Currently, all stations are long enough to fit four-car trains (two sets mated together); however, current operations use two-car trains (one set per train).

SelTrac CBTC is currently being implemented on the line by Thales, along with an urban rail traffic management system; these systems will allow the trains to be driverless.[2]
