Taipei, Nov. 24 (CNA) The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said Sunday it is gearing up to have the nationwide railway system entirely electrified by the end of next year as scheduled.

The last link of the network — the south-link railway electrification project of the Taiwan Railways Administration — is set to be completed by that time, the MOTC said in a statement.

The south-link line, which connects Pingtung and Taitung counties, is the only one that has yet to be completely electrified.

Testing and inspection of the electrification of the Pingtung section between Fangliao and Chaozhou townships, spanning 25.2 kilometers, were completed Saturday and Sunday, the MOTC said.
