"I'm at the Seoul Express Bus Terminal in Gangnam, one of the busiest and most hectic places during the holidays here in the capital city. The number of travelers you can expect to see here and at other transit stations will be much higher in the days leading up to the Lunar New Year holiday, since it falls on a weekend this year." "I'm planning on leaving early because I expect heavy traffic over the weekend." "I'm going to leave as early as I can because this year's holiday is shorter. I think I will arrive too late if I head home on Sunday because of the traffic." They're all beating the rush since this year's Lunar New Year Holiday is expected to be accompanied with the heaviest traffic ever, this according to the Korea Highway Corporation. Traffic jams across the nation will peak on Sunday, which is Lunar New Year Day with seven-point-three million people estimated to be on nation's roads. Most of them will returning home that day, so they get be back to work on Tuesday. If you're heading out Saturday, it's estimated that the travel time from Seoul to Busan will take around nine hours and ten minutes to Gwangju seven hours and ten minutes, to Daejeon five hours and to Gangneung four and a half hours. The way back to the capital on Sunday will be a bit shorter with travel time from Busan to Seoul at nine hours, from Gwangju seven hours and ten minutes, from Daejeon four hours and fifty minutes, and from Gangneung four hours. If you're stuck in a car for hours on end, you'll at least be able to check on the traffic conditions a bit more easily in real time. The nation's Traffic Information Center has enhanced its mobile information program to allow up to 200-thousand connections at a time twice as many as before. Travelers will also have access to an additional 980 highway CCTVs this holiday through portal websites such as Naver and Daum. Yoo Li-an, Arirang News.
