After Seoul-Busan line, this is the second high-speed project in the country for which Alstom is involved. It is South Korea’s third high-speed line. The entire journey will take around 20 minutes, rapidly linking southern Seoul to the south-east of the Gyeonggi Province.

Alstom, as part of a consortium led by LSIS, was awarded the contract by KRNA (Korea Rail Network Authority) in December 2014. The interlocking technology deployed on Sudokwon is the same as on the Seoul-Busan line, highlihasghting once again the confidence of the customer in Alstom’s technology that has allowed for safe and reliable routing of trains since 2004.
