The elevated railway and five elevated stations in the Taichung metropolitan area will be inaugurated at 6 a.m. on Oct. 16, and the city will conduct traffic control around the stations to make sure the transfer from ground to elevated railway will be smooth, Taichung City Government said on Tuesday.
After the inauguration of the elevated railway, all Taiwan Railways trains will run on the elevated railway along the Taichung section, and the five elevated stations of Fengyuan, Tanzi, Taiyuan, Taichung and Daqing will also be open at the same time.
The elevated railway section has a total length of 21.7 kilometers, starting from 1.9 kilometers north of Fengyuan Station to 1.4 kilometers south of Daqing Station. In the future, five additional elevated commuter stations—Lilin Station, Toujiacuo Station, Songzhu Station, Jingwu Station and Wuquan Station—will be added to the railway section when their construction is completed.
Daqing Station and Songzhu Station will become transit hubs in the future as both stations will connect to the Taichung Metro Green Line. [SOURCE]
