The countdown to the Summer Universiade begins in Taipei as there are less than
two weeks until the prestigious games begin. On Sunday, Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je said there will be no problems with the electricity supply. That’s in light of the recently damaged power plant due to a typhoon.
Mayor Ko said the electrical circuits for the Universiade game venues have been redesigned and have back up generators so there will be no problem.
The mayor also said that Taipei is getting ready to welcome 12,000 athletes and visitors for the games. He did ask local residents to be understanding about traffic issues which are bound to occur. There will be one to two days where some roads will be closed. [FULL STORY]
