Uijeongbu VAL systemTravel to Seoul


Uijeongbu is a city with half a million inhabitants just north of Seoul.

Siemens built a VAL system which functions as a feeder to Seoul's Subway Line 1 northern branch, which has a total of six stations in Uijeongbu. An interchange station was built at Hoeiryong. The completely elevated line is 11.1 km long and includes 15 stations. It is operated with 15 2-car trainsets of VAL 208 NG vehicles. The turnkey contract was awarded in September 2006 and, labelled the 'U line', it opened on 1 July 2012.
