completion date
The Seoul Metropolitan Government spent 380 billion won to complete the 5.84km section on September 30, 2005, starting with the demolition of the Cheonggyecheon High School on July 1, 2003, in front of the Dong-A Ilbo building in Gwanghwamun, to the Sindap Railroad Bridge in Seongdong-gu.

The Cheonggyecheon restoration project has a positive aspect in that it has torn down the old Cheonggye Pass, which used to be a nuisance, provided citizens with rest areas in the city center, and created new tourist attractions.

In fact, about 190 million Koreans and foreigners visited the stream for 10 years from 2005 to 2015.
