The Seoul Metropolitan Government has decided to extend city bus dispatch times by 30 minutes to ensure the safe conduct of street cheering in Gwanghwamun Square for the FIFA U-20 World Cup quarterfinal against Italy at 6 a.m. on Sept. 9 and to help citizens move around smoothly.

The city announced on Aug. 8 that it will change the concentrated distribution time of 46 routes running in the Gwanghwamun area from 7 to 9 a.m. to 7 to 9:30 a.m. for nine days only.

For subways, 25 safety personnel will be deployed at Jonggak Station (Line 1), Gwanghwamun Station (Line 5), and Gyeongbokgung Station (Line 3), an increase of 16 from the usual number, to ensure that station order is maintained during the morning rush hour. Unlike buses, subway trains are already operating at full capacity during rush hour, so there will be no additional service.

On the day of the street cheer, rental and return of public bicycles will be suspended at five locations in the Gwanghwamun area from 3:30 a.m. until the cheer ends. Personal mobility devices (3 companies) will not be available in a 500-meter radius of Gwanghwamun Square from 12:00 p.m. on the 8th until the cheer ends.

As the event is held within Gwanghwamun Square, there are no road closure plans, but TOPIS will monitor the traffic situation 24 hours a day in case there is a surge in the crowd or a sudden accident. In the event of an emergency, traffic information will be provided through the TOPIS app, Nuri House, and road signs.

In addition, the city will strive to secure the safety of citizens through organic cooperation with the organizers of the street cheer, the Korea Football Association and the Korea Federation of Businessmen and Industry, as well as related organizations such as Jongno-gu Office, police, and fire departments, including on-site safety management, crowd management and traffic control, and emergency rescue support.메이저사이트

A comprehensive situation room will be set up at the cheering site to prepare for emergency situations.
