Seoul subway trains will have wider seats and a fine dust filtering system in each carriage, Seoul Metro said on Monday. The new trains will have six seats in a row instead of the current seven, making each seat 4.5 cm wider. The doors connecting carriages will also be made wider from the current 75cm to 120cm to accommodate disabled people in wheelchairs.
