Incheon to Pyeongchang High Speed Link will be Opened Until 2018
According to insidethegames.biz news website, Incheon to Pyenongchang railway link will be opened until Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic games.
Pyeongchang 2018 organisers have claimed there will be sufficient time to fully test the high-speed railway linking Olympic and Paralympic venues with Seoul before the Games begin, despite the project only being due to open in July 2017.
Visitors will still be able to travel aboard KTX high-speed trains from Incheon International Airport to Pyeongchang without having to transfer trains on special direct services, it is promised, something that will substantially cut down on the current journey times of around four hours from the airport.
Pyeongchang 2018 Coordination Commission chair Gunilla Lindberg was confident, however, there will be no problems, emphahsing how they do not expect any issues with snowfall. Pyeongchang 2018 chairman Cho Yang-ho claimed Korean experience in other high-speed railways will ensure success.
Progress on constructing the venues and marketing revenue were highlighted by Cho two particular areas of success.
