Korean Gov’t Wants to Expand Gimhae Airport, Much to Local Government’s Opposition

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport has sent an official letter saying that it will push forward with its original plan for the Gimhae New Airport to Busan, Ulsan and South Gyeongsang Province.

The municipal and provincial governments immediately objected to the ministry’s action.

The city of Busan said yesterday(2) that the Transport Ministry had sent an official letter titled the “Statement of Review on the local Verification Committee and Forwarding Request” to respective governments.

In the letter, the ministry expressed that it will continue on with its original plan for the Gimhae New Airport.

It also requested for the inspection report by the Busan-Ulsan-South Gyeongsang verification Committee to be forwarded to the ministry, along with the list of experts who participated in the inspection.

Busan City responded by saying that the verification committee has thoroughly inspected and checked the validity of the ministry’s airport construction plan over the course of six months.

It also said that the Gimhae New Airport Plan only expands the existing airport and cannot create a gateway airport for the Southeast region.
