On the day of Chuseok, the last-minute homecoming road car and the Gwigyeong road car are mixed, causing congestion across the country.
Let’s connect the reporter at the Seoul Tollgate about the current traffic situation.
Reporter Yoo Soo-hwan, there aren't many cars behind now, but is there a lot of congestion today?
Yes, the highway congestion that was cleared up during the second day of the holiday tonight has resumed.
As the people who finished their turn in the last-minute homecoming procession are on their way to return early, the entire section of the highway is frustrating from the morning.
The congestion on Gwigyeong-gil, which started at 10 am, peaks at around 3 or 4 pm, and then seems to be resolved by 11 pm.
If you leave Busan now, it takes 6 hours and 20 minutes to the Seoul Toll Gate.
It takes 6 hours from Gwangju, 3 hours and 50 minutes from Gangneung, and 3 hours from Daejeon, which is shorter than usual, but it is still not easy to return.
I will check the road conditions through the CCTV screen.
First, it is near Giheung Junction of Gyeongbu Expressway.
There is a frustrating trend toward Seoul.
Even in the direction of Gangneung, near the Yongin Rest Area on the Yeongdong Expressway, the number of vehicles is increasing and they are not able to speed up.
Turtles are running in the direction of Mokpo, Bibong Nadeulmok on the West Coast Expressway.
The Korea Expressway Corporation predicted that about 5.81 million vehicles will use the highway today in the country.
The most vehicles are pouring out during this holiday season.
Just like yesterday, it is important to note that during the holiday season, highway tolls, which have been exempted for each holiday, are being levied.
