For sure impressive but not that surprising taking into account high developed econmy, total population and land area. Did they built a lot through diffficult terrain?

Korea is quite mountainous, so expressways tend to have many tunnels, in particular in the eastern half. Not many areas are flat, most of the flat areas are found along the west coast.

Although Korea has many tunnels, there aren't many high bridges like you find in China. Most major bridges are in urban areas and industrial areas along the coasts. Of particular interest is the Busan–Geoje Fixed Link, an 8.2 kilometer bridge-tunnel with two cable-stayed bridges and the world's deepest immersed tunnel (at the time of opening in 2010).

Opening of the Namhae Expressway Jinrye-Undong Section

As mention by ChrisZwolle, a new section of the Namhae (South Sea) expressway opened yesterday between Jinrye in Gimhae and Undong in Changwon. The section is 15km long,

Its main function is to allow traffic in and out of the Busan 2nd harbor without the need to actually go East towards downtown Busan

Expressway 12

A new Expressway 12 extradosed bridge west of Goryeong.

It is one of the few high extradosed bridges in the world. Most recently built extradosed bridges are river crossings.

Hehe, you missed one highway opening

Opening of the Hongcheon-Yangyang expressway

It will now be much easier to access Yangyang, Sokcho and the east Gangwon coast in general from Seoul.

The Hongcheon-Yangyang section of the Seoul-Yangyang highway will open to traffic tonight at 8pm. The new section is 72 kilometers long, and will feature the Inje tunnel, longest road tunnel in Korea. This will cut travel time to Yangyang to 90 minutes

They opened 261 kilometers of national expressway in the first half of 2017, making 2017 already the 3rd most productive year in Korean history for expressway inaugurations. 2001 remains the most productive year by far, when a little over 500 kilometers opened to traffic. 2003 was the most recent year with no expressway completions at all.

2nd Namhae Bridge

I was browing on Google Earth along the south coast of Korea, and I noticed a large new suspension bridge under construction east of Gwangyang, just 500 meters west of the Namhae suspension bridge.

It seems to have a main span in the 890-900 meters range, so it's quite a large suspension bridge. Evidently it is planned to open in the second half of 2018.

SUBU gansun high way buried underground U/C




Below is located at 5~6 district area
It seem like they has little bit ambitious blue print which make more pedestrian friendly ground instead of over ground highway.

Now this pedestrian road partly closed due to subu underground U/C
I have no idea how they arranged this beautiful cherry blossom road
Hopefully they preserved this plant.


around project area view
Can see Gangnam circle highway which recently completed.
