What are the strategies from the Taipei City Government in dealing with Neihu Technology Park’s traffic congestion?
In recent years, the number of enterprises entering the Neihu Technology Park has gradually increased, and the resulting traffic and commuting problems are also growing day by day. With the orientation of developing mass-transit systems as its strategy, the Taipei City Government Department of Transportation has planned for the MRT Wenshan-Neihu Line and connecting shuttle buses, using a variety of channels to promote various transfer facilities and schemes, dispersing traffic and reducing the use of personal transport, to provide comprehensive transport services to solve the traffic problems of Neihu Technology Park.Furthermore, in order to implement the use of additional parking spaces in the buildings within Neihu Technology Park and solve traffic and parking issues, the Construction Management Office of the Department of Urban Development, has carried out an inspection of the additional parking spaces in the buildings within Neihu Technology Park. The Department of Transportation also completed 2 separate general traffic examinations of Neihu Technology Park in 2005 and 2011, focusing on road bottlenecks, parking issues, public transport and taxi scheduling issues to review and propose improvement plans, in the hope that the traffic problems of Neihu Technology Park can be improved and to promote industrial development.
