TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—Since Taipei City’s North Gate regained its splendor as one of
the city’s major monuments following the removal of an overpass that had long overshadowed the historic structure earlier this year, the city government has been putting in effort to make the gate and its surrounding area a more worthwhile place to visit, and the result will soon be revealed.
Taipei’s Public Works Department has been carrying out a project involving the overhaul of the gate’s surrounding landscape and constructions aiming at transforming the surrounding area into a pedestrian plaza. The project is slated for completion on July 29.
On July 25, Deputy Mayor Charles Lin arrived at the site to inspect the ongoing constructions. He hoped that the project can be finished according to schedule.
