From the end of next year, Jamsu Bridge will be closed to traffic and only pedestrians will be allowed to use it, according to the new project plans. The pedestrian-friendly project will block the access road and permit only bicycles and pedestrians. Also, a floating garden of 2,500 square meters in size, including a playground for children, berths for small boats, a floating bridge and a cafe, is a part of the project.

Banpo Bridge will also feature a waterfall to add to the visual enjoyment of residents, officials said.

I think the Han river area has huge potential for development. There are very few capital cities in the world that have a river of that size flowing through the middle of it.

Another feature will be a strolling area next to the river, separated from the main roads by a cultivated green area, offering residents a refreshing walk in a countryside atmosphere.

This may be a little ambitious however with Seoul’s pollution levels
