Taiwan high-speed rail is 10 years old!
The archives of HSR construction are the crystallization of the wisdom in Taiwan’s traffic history. BOHSR especially constructed an online exhibition of “High-speed Rail 10-Year Anniversary Key Archives” on their official website. The contents of this exhibition comprised faithful records which reflected the key issues during the construction of HSR. The exhibition is divided into three stages: the “Preparatory Stage (1990-1998)”, “Construction Stage (1999-2006)” and “Official Operation Stage (2006 to date)”.
The “Preparatory Stage” exhibited the planning process of the HSR route and the process from governmental construction to construction, operation and BOT modules. In addition, the model of coexistence of HSR construction and environmental protection, Tainan Pheasant-tailed Jacana Eco-Educational Nature Park, was also presented in this part of the exhibition. For the “Construction Stage”, the exhibition introduced the IV & V independent check operations regarding HSR safety quality and the cable arrangements of HSR information flow. As for the “Official Operation Station”, it displayed the HSR Financial Improvement Plan regarding the additional stations: Miaoli, Changhua, Yunlin and Nangang Station.
Via brief text description of official documents, photographs and figures, the online exhibition tells the public the 16 key events of Taiwan high-speed rail all the way from the preparation period to official opening so that people can understand the entire HSR process by browsing the precious historical data.
