Debate is raging over plans to build a 4.2km long ocean cable car connecting Haeundae and Igidae.
But the local community is split in two over this project, and both sides held demonstrations at Haeundae last Thursday.
Those who oppose the project say that this privatizes the public property of Busan’s coast and damages the environment through commercial development.
They also argue that it would worsen traffic in the area covering Haeundae-gu, Nam-gu, and Suyeong-gu.
The contracting company and the tourism industry say that this will greatly help the local economy, with an estimated 3 million 120 thousand users per year and over 6.3 trillion won in production inducement.
