While the impact of the exclusion of the SRT service from Seodaejeon Station is growing in various parts of the community, it was confirmed that in the past, the government even conducted a service related to the KTX from Suseo via Seodaejeon Station. 바카라사이트
In addition, it was found that the SR side , which exclusively operates the SRT , excluded the stop at Seodaejeon Station simply because of the ‘license (for high-speed line)’ requirements. In particular, on non-high-speed lines such as the Gyeongjeon, Donghae, and Jeolla lines, which have not stopped due to this license requirement, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced plans to operate the SRT from the second half of this year , causing controversy over reverse discrimination against the same general line, Seodaejeon Station. According to the ‘KTX mid- to long-term transport demand forecast report’ published by Korea Railroad Corporation (Korail) on the 11th in 2013, before the opening of the high-speed rail from Suseo, it was confirmed that the KTX from Suseo was specified via Seodaejeon Station on the Honam Line at the time. In the policy proposal in the conclusion part of this report, “The West Daejeon area (Seo Daejeon, Gyeryong, Nonsan) is included in the future Seoul district route plan (Yongsan-Seodaejeon-Iksan), but it is not reflected in the route plan of the Suseo district, so the number of trains in the West Daejeon district As a result, KTX service is reduced.”
“Despite these unfavorable conditions, transportation demand in the Seodaejeon area will continue to maintain a certain level in the future,” he said . contains Since then , it is known that SR , the operator of the SRT , took the position that it could not stop at Seodaejeon Station, a regular line, due to the ‘license (for high-speed line only)’ requirements right before the main opening of the SRT . This is compared to the fact that Honam and Yeongnam local residents have refused to stop the SRT on the Gyeongjeon, Donghae, and Jeolla lines for similar reasons, and in fact, controversy over reverse discrimination at Seodaejeon Station is inevitable. Nevertheless, the SR side seems to keep their distance, saying that they cannot decide on the operation of the train when the SRT operation plan for the Gyeongjeon, Donghae, and Jeolla lines comes out. An SR official said, “The authority to decide train input for the railway line is not SR , but the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.”
This proves that, in the case of Seodaejeon Station, transportation demand is abundant, and more demand can be sufficiently created if the high-speed train is expanded and operated in the future.
