Gwangan Bridge to Go Under Repairs for a Month

The city of Busan announced that repairs to Gwangan Bridge will take a month after it was damaged by a Russian cargo ship that hit it last Thursday.

Safety inspections to repair the damage to the lower deck began yesterday.

According to the Joongang Ilbo, The Korean Society of Civil Engineers, Korea Infrastructure Safety and Technology Corporation and the Busan Industrial Corporation will engage in the month-long safety checkup.

The city partially reopened the entrance routes to Haeundae on the Gwangan Bridge to car traffic from Saturday night at 10 p.m.

The Busan Facilities Corporation said that it allowed some cars to pass through one of the two lanes to Haeundae though it is limited to passenger cars, vans of 12 seats or less, and vans of 1 ton or less.
