Seoul structures torn down for green space

Move part of a wider plan to make South Korea's capital a more attractive place to live.

    The mayor of Seoul has revealed plans to turn a historic elevated highway into a green park, an idea inspired by New York’s “Highline”.

    It is part of a wider plan to make the city of ten million people a more aesthetically pleasing place in which to live.
