Gwangju’s Buk-gu District has created a new “Car-Free Street” in the area around Chonnam National University’s back gate in an effort to foster local youth culture and businesses.

The district plans to limit traffic on the street from 4:00pm to 10:00pm everyday, and impose penalties to enforce the bylaw.

In order to improve pedestrian safety and convenience, granite pavement, guide signs, and installations blocking vehicle entrance have been erected in the area.

The project was initially promoted as part of efforts to improve pedestrian environments around the city, and required 2.1 billion won in government funding and a special grant tax secured by the National Security Administration.
