ETCS for the Gyeongchun and Jeolla intercity lines
Implementation of ETCS Level 1 enabled train speeds to be increased to 200kmh while reducing headways to four minutes. The implementation was achieved in less than eight months, in time for Expo 2012.
Easier commuter journeys
SelTrac® CBTC is deployed on three key routes in South Korea, including the line from Bundang to Seoul that carries 450,000 passengers every day. Rail users benefit from regular and frequent train services thanks to the two-minute headways and 110kmh speeds permitted by CBTC.
