<Anchor> As the
Chuseok holiday is almost over, the return procession continues.
Let’s listen to the reporter at the Seoul toll booth and hear what the current highway traffic conditions are.
Reporter Jo Yoon-ha, tell us the highway situation.
Yes, on the fourth day of the holiday, today (3rd), the opening day of the year, the Gwigyeong-gil Expressway heading towards Seoul is not yet congested.
Even around the Seoul Tollgate, which can be seen behind me, the cars are running unobstructed, but the congestion level is similar to that of the usual weekend, and the congestion is less than that of the usual Chuseok.
If you depart from Busan now, it takes about 5 hours and 40 minutes to the Seoul Toll Gate.
It is expected to take 5 hours from Gwangju, 2 hours and 20 minutes from Daejeon and 3 hours from Gangneung.
Still, congestion is starting in a number of sections, so let's look at it through CCTV.
First is the Gyeongbu Expressway.
As more vehicles heading towards Seoul near Cheongju are increasing, it is showing a frustrating trend.
Even at the southern end of the Seohae Bridge on the West Coast Expressway, cars heading for Seoul are moving slowly.
In the vicinity of Yongin, the Yeongdong Expressway toward Gangneung, the cars are also not getting up to speed.
The Korea Highway Corporation estimates that 4.05 million vehicles will use the national highway today.
The traffic congestion on the Gwigyeong-gil will reach its peak between 4 PM and 5 PM, and the flow of the vehicle is expected to breathe around 10 PM.
Tomorrow, the end of the holiday season, is not expected to be significantly different from the usual weekend traffic.
