Daegu Colorful Festival will take place at Gukchaebosang-ro area from May 4th (Sat) to May 5th (Sun).
Same as last year, entry of traffic to Gukchaebosang-ro (Seoseong Four-way Intersection ~ Jonggak Four-way Intersection) and Gongpyeong-ro (Gyodong Four-way Intersection ~ Bongsan Six-way Intersection) will be prohibited, and various contents including Colorful Parade with participants from 86 teams, street performances and citizen performances will replace cars during the festival!
Daegu Metropolitan Government will implement ‘Special Traffic Measures’ during the festival period for the convenience of domestic and overseas visitors who come to Daegu to enjoy the festival.
The following are the details on these traffic control measures implemented to minimize citizens’ inconvenience~
Colorful Daegu Festival Special Traffic Measures
① Traffic Control Promotion Plan.
During the festival period, voluntary cooperation of the citizens is crucial in avoiding traffic jams! Please lend a hand in making a successful festival by 'refraining from using private vehicles and using public transportation!’
Daegu Metropolitan City has produced one million leaflets, 270 banners and 223 standing banners with information on traffic control and had them installed or attached at apartments, public facilities with large floating population, city buses and taxis to inform citizens.
The information can also be found at Traffic Information System devices including 60 electronic traffic information signboards, 304 electronic signboards at metro stations, 1,617 electronic signboards at city buses, and 1,174 electronic signboards at bus stops! The information includes not only the information on detour and prohibition of entry, but also every detail regarding traffic control, city bus detours and other measures which encourage citizens to use public transportation (bus routes and numbers) to provide practical help in minimizing the chances of traffic jam on festival days!
Vehicle entry into Gukchaebosang-ro and Gongpyeong-ro, Jung-gu, Daegu will be prohibited for two days from May 4th (Sat) to May 5th (Sun), 2019. Also, to ensure safety of citizens and visitors, vehicle entry into Seoseong Four-way Intersection – Jonggak Four-way Intersection / Gyodong Four-way Intersection – Bongsan Six-way Intersection will be prohibited, so please be noted!
② Traffic Control Measures.
Daegu Metropolitan City will designate three-level traffic management areas during the festival, which are 1) control line, 2) proximate detour line and 3) wide detour line to prevent traffic concentration and congestion, so we ask for your kind support!
1) Control Line
- Categorized into Complete Closure/Partial Closure/Flexible Allowance
- Complete Closure: Gukchaebosang-ro from Seoseong Four-way Intersection to Jonggak Four-way Intersection

2) Proximate Detour Line
- Line designated to prohibit entry of vehicles coming from intersections outside Control Line, controlled using traffic light and hand signal
3) Wide Detour Line
- Line designated to divert traffic inflow from distant thoroughfares to roads near the venue (Dalgubeol-daero, Taepyeong-ro) beforehand, Two LED signboard trucks, information signboards and banners will be used to provide traffic information and prevent congestion in advance.

And 786 traffic guides composed of volunteering public servants, police officers and exemplary drivers will be deployed to major control spots on the date of the festival to manage traffic and inform drivers of traffic control~!
③ Traffic Convenience Measures.
To encourage use of public transportation during the festival, Daegu Metropolitan City will maintain the number of city buses to weekday level (160 extra buses).
Also, for convenient return of citizens after the festival, operation of five express bus routes will be extended with 31 additional buses (last bus 11 pm → 11.30 pm), and metro operation will be extended for one hour from 22.00 to 23.00, during which four additional trains will be deployed per each line and interval will be reduced from 10 minutes to 7 minutes. 35 safety officers will be deployed to stations near the festival venue to guarantee safety and convenience!
Also, information on traffic control will be provided through navigation programs to restrict route guidance to controlled roads with the help of five #navigation service providers such as #TMap or #KakaoNavi~ Notices stating changes to bus stops, bus stop closures and platform integrations were posted on city buses, so if you need to travel around the venue during festival time, make sure to check the posters!
④ Parking and Street Vendor Measures
Daegu Metropolitan City will provide information on traffic control and parking lots near metro stations (20 parking lots with 4,903 slots at Chilseong Market Station, etc.) with banners & electronic signboards on highway interchanges to minimize traffic inconvenience of visitors from other regions and citizens to whom use of private vehicle is necessary and encourage use of public transportation.
In addition, 8 street vendor squad vehicles, 2 tow trucks and street vendor squads will be deployed around the venue to prevent any congestion from illegal street vendors, and traffic situation center will be operated and traffic control officers will communicate through radio and instant messenger applications to share real-time traffic information and respond accordingly.
