Hyundai Rotem secures US$282m Seoul GTX train order

Hyundai Rotem has been successful in winning an order for trains for the new GTX regional rail network in Seoul. The trains will be delivered in time for the opening of Line A in 2024. The eight-car trains can carry up to 1090 passengers and will travel at up to 180km/hour.

GTX Line A will be 83.1km long with 10 stations and will run from Unjeong in Paju, through the centre of Seoul to Dongtan in Hwaseong. GTX lines B and C were approved last year. Line B will link Songdo with Cheongnyangni and Line C will run from Uijeongbu to Geumjeong. The two lines will add another 130km to the GTX network by 2027.
