Analysis of the literature on the use of the public space functions of roads in urban regeneration projects and assessment of their status quo in case study regions show how insufficient the utilization of such functions is. Korea’s Road Act lacks a legal basis for the use of such functions in a way that prioritizes people and urban activities over motor vehicles. This is because of the dearth of guidelines on the application of the Regulation on the Criteria for Road Structure and Facilities (Article 17). Despite the inextricable relationship between roads and urban regeneration projects in project zones, central government offices have not reflected this and instead have implemented urban regeneration projects through piecemeal efforts receiving budgetary support.
