The urban highway construction connecting Mandeok to Centum City will break ground on the 23rd.
The city of Busan has approved of private investment into the construction project.
783.2 billion won — including a private investment of 588.5 billion won — will be used to construct four lanes, each 9.62 kilometers long.
The construction is expected to finish by October of 2024.
An official from the city said that this highway is expected to greatly reduce the commute between Mandeok and Centum City, from the current 40 minutes to just ten minutes.
