Taipei Department of Transportation Commissioner Chung Hui-yu clarified Thursday through local radio that Mayor Ko Wen-je did indeed promise to draft new traffic management plans for Neihu within nine months, reports said Thursday.
In June last year, Ko had instructed the department to come up with plans to resolve congestion around Neihu Technology Park. But his statement has since been embellished by the local media saying that the mayor had vowed to solve its traffic problem within nine months.
“The media has misinterpreted Ko’s statement,” she explained during a radio talk show at POP Radio station in Taipei.
The plan will come in three phases, short-term, mid-term and long-term, according to the commissioner. [FULL STORY]
