Banpo Bridge - Official Website

Banpo Bridge (Banpo-daegyo) is a major bridge over Han River (Hangang) that connects both Seocho (South) and Yongsan (North) districts.

 

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.
