Abstract

In the 1980s, transportation facilities such as roads and railroads were already crowded due to the rapid industrialization in the country. The investment in roads alone resulted in limitations in coping with traffic congestion. It was expected that, despite the construction of new expressways or the expansion of existing ones, the soaring number of automobiles would increase corridors with traffic congestions. Thus, a necessity was raised to introduce a new transport mode between Seoul and Busan, and a feasibility study results indicated that it would be appropriate to construct exclusive high-speed passenger railway line along the Gyeongbu corridor. For three years, from 1989 to 1991, a technical survey for the Gyeonbu high-speed rail project was conducted by some governmental research institutes and domestic rail technology-related engineering companies. Based on the results of the technical survey, the construction of Gyeongbu high speed railway line started in June 1992. (The rest omitted)
