Western Ichon-dong Pedestrian Overpass [서부이촌동보행육교] is a pedestrian overpass over Gangbyeonbuk-ro located in Seoul’s neighborhood Ichon [Ichon-dong/이촌동] in the Yongsan District [Yongsan-gu/용산구]. In 2017, this then 35-year-old overpass was renovated to improve on its user-friendliness, with its walkway being widened from 2m to 4m, elevators installed and LED lights added for the convenience of those passing through at night. The overpass offers a splendid panoramic view on Yeouido’s landmarks such as Parc.1 [파크원] and 63 Square [63스퀘어].

The overpass sits in walking distance from Seogang Ggobdaegi [서강껍데기] and provides a perfect view of the Han River, Hangang Railway Bridge [한강철교] and 63 Square [63스퀘어].
