It forms the upper deck of Jamsu Bridge below, making it the first double-deck bridge built in South Korea. Jamsu bridge lies just meters above the waterline was completed in 1976. In 1982, Banpo Bridge was built on top of Jamsu Bridge, creating a two-deck bridge.
There are a 2-way bicycling track, pedestrian walking lane and 2-way road for traffic on Jamsu Bridge, the lower deck of Banpo Bridge.
