Seoullo 7017 - Past & Present

It was originally 'Seoul Station Overpass', a road for cars and regarded as a symbol of Seoul during the period of industrialisation.

 

In 2006, the Seoul Station Overpass was closed to traffic due to safety concerns. It is now a transformed beautiful sky garden high above the busy streets.
