서울로_icon Seoul Station 7017 Project

The Seoul Station overpass was constructed in 1970 as a response to the growing traffic congestion in Seoul. For decades, the highway connected the eastern and western halves of the city. Once an elevated highway, it has been transformed into Seoullo 7017, an elevated public park for pedestrians. Seoullo 7017's name is a nod to its origins; 70 for the year the overpass was first constructed, and 17 for the year of the highway's rebirth. The number 17 also refers to the number of pedestrian paths that make up Seoullo. Where cars once sped along, people will now be able to wander. Visit the footpaths of Seoullo and experience Seoul's history and culture while having fun!


▶ What is the Seoul Station 7017 project?
The Seoul Station 7017 project helmed the efforts to transform the Seoul Station overpass into Seoullo 7017. Not only did the Seoul Station 7017 project manage to successfully turn a highway into a pedestrian walkway, the project will continue to work on revitalizing the area surrounding Seoullo 7017.

▶ Revitalization and creating people-friendly city
It is important to remember and preserve history. The Seoul Station 7017 project recognizes the need to both preserve history and to revitalize underdeveloped areas of the city. Working with feedback from locals, the project aims to create a revitalized and people-friendly city. The project will work on a smarter method of revitalization; one that respects the past while working towards the future.

▶ The Seoullo 7017 project; the start of urban revitalization
The completion of Seoullo 7017 does not mean the end of the project's work. The Seoul Station 7017 project will continue to focus on underdeveloped areas of Seoul.
