  • SMG to Connect Four Green Axes

  • Environment & Energy news SMG 5314

    Due to the construction of the 8-lane Yangjae-daero, the green axis of Dalteo Neighborhood Park and Guryongsan Mountain located in Gaepo-dong, Gangnam-gu, has been cut off. In response, the Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) has announced plans to build an eco-friendly connecting passage in the shape of a bridge between the two areas by June 2017, creating a pedestrian passage.

    By 2018, the SMG will have created pedestrian passages in the following four areas: Yangjae-daero, Muakjae Hill, Seooreung Hill, and Banghak-ro, areas in which the green axes have been cut off due to road construction and urban development. The severing of the axes has lead to damage to the green areas surrounding the roads, as well as inconveniences for residents wishing to move freely while using the park.

    The connecting passage will have a minimum width of 10 meters and a maximum of 20 meters. A passage for animals, enhancing the preservation of the green areas, will be built within the pedestrian passage to make it a “Seoul-type connecting passage,” where humans and nature coexist. The pedestrian passage will be constructed by connecting the walkway courses and the green areas.
