Reminder: Walk The Gwangan Bridge Event this Saturday Morning

The City of Busan has announced that it will open Gwangandaegyo bridge to pedestrians for three hours on July 27th from 8 am to 11 am.

To promote a walking culture as part of the city’s ‘human-centered walking innovation’ policy, the 4.9-kilometer portion of the upper level of the bridge, from the BEXCO tollbooth to the ramp heading to Mega Mart Namcheon branch at Suyeong-gu, will be open to pedestrians on a trial basis. It is free public event.

While walking across the bridge, you can enjoy a parade, performances, various photo zones and food trucks.

Traffic on the upper level of the bridge will be shut down from 7 a.m. – noon on July 27, 2019, while the lower level of the bridge will be open to vehicles. To ensure an adequate amount of walking time, participants are allowed to enter the bridge between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.

The bridge will be open to pedestrians again in September 2019. The city will evaluate public safety and traffic flows from the results of the two events and collect public opinions to determine if it can become a regular event from next year. The city also plans to build a pedestrian walkway on the bridge.
