Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je has approved a project to tear down 18 pedestrian 6748613bridges before the end of 2017 due to their low usage rates.

Ko said in August last year that he had ordered the city’s Public Works Department to make an evaluation of 59 pedestrian bridges and 34 underpasses within the city limits in six months to determine their fate, adding that the initial cost for demolishing all of them was estimated at around NT$200 million.

The evaluation was completed last week and its result was approved by Ko on April 11.     [FULL  STORY]
