Daejoen once had a project to build five metro lines (map), but this was cancelled. Instead, line 2 may be built as a sort of light rail circular line. Previously, Line 2 (30.5 km) was to become a ring line which would intersect with Line 1 three times. Line 3 (24 km) was to run north-south parallel to an existing rail corridor, Line 4 (9.7 km) was to become another north-south route further west, and Line 5 (15.6 km) was meant to cross the city from east to west. The total network was planned to reach 102 km.
