Suwon Station is a railway station in the city of Suwon, South Korea. The station was completely redeveloped in 2002 and 2003, and is now integrated with the Aekyung Shopping Mall(AK PLAZA). This station serves the national Gyeongbu Line and Line 1 of the Seoul subway, which runs services from Soyosan Station to the north to Sinchang to the south.
Suwon Station opened on January 1, 1905. On December 1, 1930, the narrow gauge Suryeo Line from Suwon to Yeoju opened. On August 6, 1937, the Suin Line from Suwon to Incheon began operating services. Over three decades later, on April 1, 1972, the Suryeo Line closed, though two years later, on August 15, 1974, the Seoul Subway began services to Suwon. The Suin Line and narrow gauge services were both terminated on January 1, 1996.
Seoul Subway's Bundang Line is currently being extended to Suwon with a projected completion date of December 2013. And a reborn Suin Line will once again be connecting Suwon to Incheon from sometime in 2016.
Suwon Station shares a building with AK Plaza. The station itself is above ground (for all services) and underground (for metro services only). There are many stores and restaurants located in the station and outside of the station.
