South Korea to invest $1.2 million in inter-Korean railway reconnection project

Construction on the Gyeongwon line is aimed at ultimately reconnecting railway up to Wonsan in North Korea

South Korea will invest around $1.2 million in the long-stalled project to reconnect the Gyeongwon inter-Korean railway line, the country’s unification ministry said on Monday.

The Inter-Korea Exchange and Cooperation Promotion Council, presided over by unification minister Lee In-young, decided to use the money to maintain the South Korean side of the Gyeongwon line on Nov. 16. The project ultimately aims to connect Seoul with the North Korean harbor city of Wonsan.
