The extension to Incheon Subway Line 1 was designed to relieve the traffic congestion in western Seoul and northern Incheon. Nine stations were added October 27, 2012, for the 10.2 km extension, starting from Onsu Station of Line 7 and ending at Bupyeong-gu Office Station of Incheon Subway Line 1.
Line 7 is currently being extended west of Bupyeong-gu Office. Construction on two-station, 3.94 km extension to Seongnam began in 2013 and is due to be completed in 2020. The extension will allow for transfers to Incheon Subway Line 2. A further six-station extension to Cheongna International City station through Cheongna International City is currently planned and is not expected to open any earlier than 2027; the extension will allow for transfers to the airport railroad. Another further two-station extension through Incheon's metropolitan landfill to Geomdan Oryu station is also currently being planned.
