[2014-06-18] Gwangju to Discuss Scrapping its Previous KTX Operation Plan

Gwangju to Discuss Scrapping its Previous KTX Operation Plan

 

The transition team under the leadership of newly elected Gwangju Mayor Yoon Jang-hyeon, the 'Hopeful Gwangju Preparation Committee', is reportedly considering scrapping the previous Honam KTX operation plan.

At a press conference held yesterday, director of the Task Force Team for Urgent Matters, Lee Myeong-gyu, said the team is skeptical about the previously-launched Honam KTX operation plan that changes the original route to make an additional stop at Gwangju Station.

Honam KTX, which is currently under construction, was originally to make a stop only at Gwangju Songjeong Station in Gwangsan-gu district, but changes to the plan to add an additional stop at Gwangju Station in Buk-gu district was later discussed.

However, Lee explained that an additional stop at Gwangju Station will further extend the operation hour of the Honam KTX by 37 minutes and increase the cost of the project by 140 billion won, raising concerns over the financial burden that will be shouldered by the city of Gwangju and the Ministry of Land, Transport and Infrastructure.

Lee added that what has been discussed at the press conference is not the final decision and relevant issues will be reexamined by the new mayor, Yoon Jang-hyun, after he takes office.
