In 2005, parts of the
Gyeongwon Line(from Yongsan to Hoegi Station) and the Jungang Line (from Hoegi to Deokso) was opened for commuter railservice under the interim name Yongsan-Deokso Line. In late 2007, Paldang Stationbecame the new eastern terminus with the addition of two more stations, and was officially named the Jungang Line, although the commuter railway actually incorporates parts of "both" Gyeongwon and Jungang Lines.
The commuter railway will eventually be extended to
Yongmun Stationin the county of Yangpyeong.
