Seoul Subway Line 9 Expansion Opens

The first expansion of Line 9 on the Seoul subway opened on Saturday, which now extends the line from Sinnonhyeon to Sports Complex Station on Line 2.
The expansion is four-point-five kilometers long and passes through five subway stations, including the Eonju and Samseongjungang stations. Passengers will be able to transfer to the Bundang Line via Seonjeongneung Station with the new expansion.
It will now take passengers 38 minutes from the subway station at Gimpo Airport to Sports Complex Station, 27 minutes shorter than before.
To ease sudden spikes in passengers during rush hours at the new subway stations, the city of Seoul plans to make a bus route from Gayang to Yeouido available free of charge for a temporary period.
Construction for the second expansion of Line 9, which is expected to be opened by 2018, is currently ongoing to connect Sports Complex Station to Seoul Veterans Hospital. City officials said 50 percent of the construction work has been completed.
