The City of Busan has announced that it has completed its Green Line Park project to build a 6 kilometer open green space from Hamajeong Sageori (intersection) to Weondonggyo bridge. The city has built public rest areas with walkways and greenery under the Donghae Nambu Line’s elevated tracks.
The project broke ground in December 2016, with an agreement between the City of Busan and the Korea Rail Network Authority. The 2.8 kilometer long Dongnae section between Oncheoncheon Railroad Bridge and Weondonggyo bridge in Dongnae-gu, was completed in December 2017. With the completion of the 3.2 kilometer long Yeonje section between Hamajeong Sageori and Busan Nat'l Univ. of Edu. Station in November 2018, urban greenery walkways were established along all sections in the area.
The new Green Line Park has a variety of themed areas for members of the community to walk through and rest in. The themed rest areas will offer green walkways with blooming flowers and various small creatures for people to explore and enjoy.
Convenient amenities, including pergolas, benches, information boards and exercise equipment have been installed along the walkways. For the safety of visitors, street lights and surveillance cameras have also been installed.
The retired Oncheoncheon railway bridge reopened to the public after a safety inspection was conducted to deem it safe for strolling. In addition, night time illumination of the area and a photo zone will attract visitors.
The city will make its best efforts to follow through on creating, “Walkable City, Busan.”
