On June 29, Seongdong-gu signed a business agreement with Hanyang University and Hanyang Women’s University, universities within its jurisdiction, to newly construct a Wangsimni station Great Train Express (GTX)-C.
Seongdong-gu has been showing an omnidirectional effort in recruiting the TF team and constructing the GTX-C Wangsimni station line since June 3. Especially, at the ‘GTX-C line strategy environment effect evaluation presentation for residents’ held by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport on June 3, strong requests for newly constructing the Wangsimni station of the local citizens have continued and the ‘GTX-C line Wangsimni station construction Seongdong-gu citizen promotion committee’ is carrying out a nationwide signature campaign until July 31.
In response to this, Seondgond-gu has suggested Hanyang University and Hanyang Women’s University, which has similar objectives of resolving commuting problems of workers and Hanyang University students. In accordance with the active acceptance of each university, agreements will be made on Hanyang University on July 25 and Hanyang Women’s University on July 26.
The main content of the agreement is the formation of the promotion group and joint proposal to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport for establishing the GTX-C Wangsimni station line. Seongdong-gu plans to promote an online student signature campaign by forming a joint promotion group with each school based on this agreement.
Wangsinmi station, which is the largest transit point of the Gangbuk region with almost one hundred nine million passengers per year is expected to largely aid in the transportation convenience of not only Seoul citizens but also the capital and local citizens if the GTX-C line stops at Wangsimni station,
Jeong Won-oh, head of Seongdong-gu Office said “we will do our best to make the GTX-C line stop at Wangsimni station through the agreements of universities within the jurisdiction and further efforts on performing validity research service, agreements with related organization, and promoting signature campaigns”.
