Cheonan-Asan Station (Onyangoncheon) is a ground-level train station located mostly in Asan, Chungcheongnam-do, although part of it lies in the neighboring city of Cheonan. This station serves high-speed KTX trains that run from Seoul to either Busan or Mokpo. It is connected to (and it is possible to transfer to trains which stop at) Asan Station, a railway station on the Janghang Line which is also served by Line 1 of the Seoul Subway. Asan Station was opened to facilitate access to the KTX station.

History

The location of Cheonan-Asan Station was finalised on June 14, 1993, though construction did not begin until July 22, 1996. The planned name of "Onyang Oncheon Station" was changed to "Cheonan-Asan Station" on November 20, 2003, and the station building was completed on March 27 the following year. The station opened for business four days later, on April 1, 2004.

On March 30, 2007, Asan Station was opened as a transfer station on the Janghang Line, soon to be integrated into the latest extension of Line 1 of the Seoul Subway.

Services

Cheonan-Asan Station serves all KTX trains on the Gyeongbu and Honam lines. (KTX services calling at Suwon do not pass through Cheonan-Asan.) Asan Station, meanwhile, is served by all Saemaul and Mugunghwa services on the Janghang Line.
