BUSAN, South Korea — Korail’s Busan/Gyeongnam branch announced that the Haeundae and Songjeong Train Stations will move to new locations due to the opening of a new railway route between Allak and Gijang on December 2, 2013.
The new route is part of a railway construction project on the Donghae Nambu line, which runs from Busan to Pohang. The new railway line is roughly 2.6 km shorter than the current route, and promises to shave about five minutes off commuting time. .
The coastal train route from Haeundae to Songjeong via Cheongsapo will be operated until December 1, 2013. The new Haeundae and Songjeong stations will begin operations from December 2, 2013.
