Bike Path Extension at Cheonggyecheon

Since the first time that I’ve heard that the whole Cheonggyecheon is going to be sidelined with bike paths, I waited for this day. I marked it in my calendar, too. Finally, today on this lovely Sunday was the first event and together with a lot of other people I cycled from the beginning to the stream on car-free roads and on separated bike lanes.

Cheonggyecheon’s Bike Path to be Extended

Last week, Seoul City government announced that the roads along the Cheonggyecheon are going to have bicycle lanes from April to June and from September to November on every Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm. Bike lanes of 3.8 km (from the beginning of the stream to the Cheonggye-7-Ga (청계천7가)-bridge)  are going to be temporally installed once a week. A Cheonggye-7-Ga it connects with the already existing bike lanes of 2.1 km length all the way to the Sindabcheol-bridge (신답철교). This existing bike path is 1.1 m wide. The new bike lanes gets a temporal line and physical separator through traffic cones to the car roads are going to secure 1.5 to 3 m of bike path.
