<Anchor> The

five-day Chuseok holiday has begun.

Congestion continues throughout the country's highways.

We will connect to reporters who are out at the Seoul toll booth about the current traffic situation.

Reporter Kim Sang-min, please.

<Reporter> The

congestion on the highway to return home, which was resolved overnight, started again at around 5 am.

It seems that not only returnees but also vehicles leaving for the holiday season were added.

The road construction company said that the road congestion had peaked about an hour ago.

The congestion is expected to resolve between 7 and 8 pm.

If you pass the Seoul Tollgate now, it will take 6 hours to the Busan Tollgate.

It is expected that it will take 2 hours and 20 minutes to Daejeon, 4 and a half hours to Gwangju, and 3 and a half hours to Gangneung.

Let's look at the road conditions while looking at the CCTV screen.

First is the Gyeongbu Expressway.

It is showing a frustrating trend toward Busan near the Biryong Junction in Daejeon.

The driving speed is also slowing as the traffic volume increases in the direction of Mokpo near Seopyeongtaek on the West Coast Expressway.

Even in the vicinity of Yongin in the Gangneung direction of the Yeongdong Expressway, you will see a vehicle that filled the road slowly moving.

Today, the Korea Expressway Corporation revealed an estimated 4,57 million vehicles across the country. It is predicted that 470,000 vehicles will move from the metropolitan area to the local area and 310,000 vehicles from the local area to the metropolitan area.

Those on the way home should be aware that expressway tolls, which were exempted from each holiday so far, are being collected normally, and that restaurants are not available at expressway rest areas, and only convenience food packaging is possible.
