Mokpo City is located in the southwest corner of the Korean peninsular. This beautiful port city is the gateway to a number of islands of the west coast of Korean. The city is accessible by ship via its multi-purpose port, by train through the Mokpo Station or by vehicle via the west coast expressway connecting the peninsula to Seoul and Busan located in the south-eastern tip of Korea. The Mokpo Station serves as the end of the line for the very popular Honam Express Railway which also connects to Seoul and other parts of the country to the large amount of ocean traffic and trade which passes through the port of Mokpo.
Like many port cities in the area, Mokpo City is struggling to reinvigorate itself as a maritime and tourism destination, while at the same time develop the overall logistics of this major port in northeast Asia. Improvements to the Mokpo Station are also an important part of the Mokpo City improvements which should result in increased competitiveness of railroad transportation. These improvements include not only improvements but also new construction of railroads. These improvements include double-tracking of Honam Railroad, which was completed in 2003, construction of a railroad spur heading into the southwest region, a new industrial site, and the Mokpo-Boseong route, scheduled for completion in 2011. Extended Honam Railroad (Daejeon-Mokpo spur) was constructed in 2003 and upgraded to fully electric 2004. This new system shortens the operation time for the Seoul-Mokpo route by 1.53 hours (reduction from 4.42 hours to 2.49 hours). This one significant improvement contributed immensely to the increase of people visiting the region and a reduction in the distribution costs for companies importing into the region.
If you should intend to utilize the Mokpo Station as your entry way to this part of South Korea, you will be welcomed by an ever improving facility. Should your plans include travel throughout the area, public transportation and car hire companies are all located nearby the Mokpo Station for your convenience.
