Seoul to Improve Subway System with Ten Point Plan

In light of the recent (and alarmingly increasing amount of) subway accidents, the Seoul Metropolitan Government recently announced a “Ten Point Improvement Plan for the Seoul Metro Subway System.” Points include a special inspection of lines one through four before the first trains run, increasing the number of cameras for subway train monitoring, an introduction of a “Golden Time Goal System” which aims to ensure initial response measures and dissemination of information are completed within five minutes, regular monitoring and joint inspections with specialists, replacing old trains, and the creation of an integrated control center. Only time will tell if these improvement measures can actually keep Seoul subways safer.
