Today (12th), the water level of the Han River has significantly lowered.

A submersible bridge that had been locked was also revealed.

Let's go to the scene.

Reporter Suwon-wook Suwon, how is the current situation at Jamsu Bridge?


Yes, the Jamsu Bridge, which had been submerged in water for five days, is slowly being revealed.

I've been watching the situation here since 4 am.

When I first came, the structures of Banpo Hangang Park were submerged in water and could not be seen at all, but the water has gone down enough to be able to see the trunk of the tree an hour or two ago, and now the bridge is visible to some extent.

Currently, a cleaning truck is also mobilized to prepare to remove the garbage caught on the bridge.

As of 4:30 pm, the water level of the Jamsu Bridge is recorded at 6.61 meters, but it is still less than the vehicle operation control standard of 6.2 meters.

Paldang Dam discharges 6,000 tons per second.

The Soyanggang Dam also opened its floodgates for the first time in two years, but the current discharge is about 600 tons per second, which is not enough to have a significant impact on the water level of the Han River in Seoul.

There is no rain today, so the water level in the Han River is expected to be lower.

<Anchor> A

lot of road control has been loosened, haven't you?


Yes, all major arterial roads in Seoul have been closed.

All arterial roads such as Olympic-daero and Gangbyeon-buk-ro are easy to communicate with.

After a while, it's time to start work.

Some roads in downtown Seoul are still under control.

Eight places including Dangsan Interchange and Mangwon Interchange are still controlled in both directions.

As traffic conditions are constantly changing, it is advisable to check the traffic information on the way home from work.
