Taipei City’s Public Works Department presented its proposed draft to have
the Keelung-Xinyi pedestrian skywalk dismantled by 2017, reports said Sunday.
If passed by the review board, the decision to have the overpass torn down will begin next year at the latest.
This L-shaped pedestrian bridge sits near the intersection of Xinyi Road and Keelung Road, which is a popular location for photographers to take photos of Taipei 101, especially at night.
The 20-year-old public infrastructure has also been a hotspot for aficionados during the annual Taipei 101 New Year’s fireworks display, the department said. [FULL STORY]
