Seoul has announced a plan to build seven light rail tracks around the city by year 2017.
The new tracks will cover approximately 64 km and will be constructed in areas now suffering from heavy traffic congestion or from a relatively backward mass transit system.

City officials expect the light rail service to cater to some 600,000 users on a daily basis when they are completed ten years from now.
