Park Sang-gil, a reporter for the Digital Times, will be unveiled as early as this week. The plan will also be presented with a wide-area transportation plan that will quell the voices that housing prices will be difficult to determine because the third new city is located far from Seoul.
According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport on Wednesday, a mini-urban housing site capable of accommodating 20,000 to 30,000 households each will be unveiled this week at the earliest.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced the plan to expand housing supply on September 21, and announced that it plans to supply 200,000 new homes between Seoul and the first new cities such as Ilsan and Bundang by creating four to five public housing sites with more than 3.3 million square meters of land.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport decided to announce the location of two of them by the end of this year and visited the housing site. Within and outside the real estate industry, Kimpo, Gocheon, Gwangmyeong, Seongnam, Siheung, Hanam and Namyangju are mentioned as potential candidates.
Although Gwacheon and Wonheung, two of the three most likely candidates for the new city, were excluded from the candidate sites due to the leak of information, some observers say that they will still not be excluded from the candidate sites for the new city.안전한놀이터
Officials involved in the new town announcement remain extremely secure as the government has implemented strong measures to prevent the leakage of information on the next candidate site, including criminal penalties.
Along with the location of the third new city, a measure to address traffic problems in the area will also be announced.
At the core of the measures for wide-area transport networks is the Seoul Metropolitan Rapid Transit (GTX) route.
Currently, the GTX-A (futility-Dongtan) route has passed the civilian investment project review committee, and the GTX-C (Yangju-Suwon) route has exceeded the threshold of a preliminary feasibility study.
The GTX-B route (Songdo-Ma-seok) was found to be lacking in business feasibility at the preliminary review, and the Incheon city government has applied to the National Balanced Development Committee to exempt B-line.
Measures to improve transportation in the second half of the new cities such as Gimpo, Paju, Hwaseong and Pyeongtaek will also be proposed. It seems that the plan to secure roads and subway networks that have been slow will be a flexible one.
"We have yet to set a specific time for the announcement," said a ministry official.
