To successfully connect TIAA MRT System and our capital, Taipei City, building restrictions alongside the transport routes are essential. The current civil construction work of TIAA MRT routes is approaching completion and the safety control measures for official HSR operation are even more crucial.
The building restrictions for TIAA MRT are in accordance with "Building Restrictions alongside MRT Facilities". The restriction range (see attached picture for building restriction range for elevated section) was determined via legal procedures and promulgated respectively on Mar 3 2011 by New Taipei City Government, Mar 19 2011 by Taipei City Government and May 22 2011 by Taoyuan County Government.
There are two phases for building restrictions application and verification. Phase 1 is construction license application and phase 2 is construction commencing application. The construction team should provide Safety Evaluation Report, Construction Plan, Monitoring Project, Emergency Incident Measures and other required documents which state the impact of objective behavior toward MRT facilities for each application phase. The applications will be verified by local construction authorities together with MRT authorities. Construction will only begin after the application has been verified and approved by both authorities. For non-architectural public constructions, the construction team should attach construction information and safety prevention measures for such applications and be verified by local construction authorities together with MRT authorities. However, for non-architectural public constructions that concern underground cutting and drilling, they are to be processed as architecture/ building application procedure.
Applicant's submitted Monitoring Plan should be set with a warning level and a hazardous level according to regulations. Additionally, the monitoring equipment should be fully set up and have performed initial measurements in advance of construction commencement. Moreover, the monitoring measurement reports should be submitted to MRT authorities periodically for future reference.
The TIAA MRT Project is another rail construction milestone since operation initiation of HSR which connected the entire western Taiwan. To strictly execute relevant building restrictions is essential to assure the safety of MRT facilities and operation and it is the responsibility of MRT authorities to supervise its actual execution.
