Rail transportation is an important part of Uiwang, which is home to the Korean Railroad Museum and Korea National Railroad College. Seoul Subway Line 1 passes through the city, as does the Gyeongbu Line railroad. In addition, a terminal of the Hanjin container shipping concern is located here.
Uiwang city developed considerably thanks to the expansion of the city of Anyang. Several districts are directly connected into Gunpo and Suwon. However, because Anyang penitentiary is located at the outskirt of Anyang, which borders very closely to Ojeon-dong, Uiwang, which is just next to the borderline. Uiwang is quiet, peaceful, and beautiful town surrounded by many mountains and forests. Also, National road 1 and Seoul Express Beltway passes through Uiwang, making it center of transportation. Places such as city hall, Central library, Senior Welfare center, Health Center, and Teen centers are all located in Gocheon-dong. Many large corporations, such as Haitai confectionaries, Cheil Industries, and many other trade and logistics companies are located in Uiwang.
