Absolutely fabulous! I've never seen such a beautiful rest stop. We can learn from this in the Netherlands....

Yes, this is bus-only lane in express way. The bus-only lane includes above 9 seater private cars carrying above 6 passengers. Cheifly it's operated on saturday, sunday and holidays but some section is operated on weekdays too.

And this is the bus-only lane in the downtown. Unlike the expressway bus-only lane, it usually takes effect on weekdays.

If we are talking about Korean cars I'd like to add that in Poland these are very popular:






And this was my first car which I drove from 2000 to 2005. It was reliable and it has 111000 km on counter when I sold it:

In both video you can see how the bus-only lane works.

Yeah, don't forget South Korea is a developed country with 48 million inhabitants. The expressway network is around 3.000 kilometers long.

awesome thread and awesome pictures and awesome roads

i noticed that most highwas are concrete instead of asphalt...which is something we just cant get through our THICK SKULLS here in europe

the sheer sizes/widths/heights/amounts of concrete and steel are staggering
but i guess you need that in such terrain and with such pupulation configuration
