Testing underway on Taipei airport metro line
Friday, April 24, 2015



DYNAMIC testing has begun on a new express metro link between Taipei and Taiwan's busiest airport, Taoyuan International, which was used by 35.8 million passengers last year

Construction began in 2006 on the 35km Taoyuan International Airport MRT, which starts at Taipei Main Station and serves the districts of Sanchong, Guishan and Luzhu before reaching the airport. The 14-station line is being constructed as a single project with the first phase of the Taoyuan metro Blue Line, which will connect the airport with Zhongli main line station in central Taoyuan

Taipei is increasing its metro system quite satisfied. Recently introduction of number is quite practical, rather than the old name system

Line 1 is the only rubber tired metro line.
Line 2 is the longest route, may be the only suburban metro route.
Line 3 is the latest extension, and after this, it connects main areas.
Line 4is the most modern line, along with PSDs at each stations.
Line 5 will be the next extension.

Go ahead Taipei.

MRT riders break New Year’s record
Taipei Times with CNA Excerpt
Jan. 2, 2016

Ridership on the Taipei Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system on New Year’s Eve and early New Year’s Day exceeded 3 million passengers, breaking the previous record, Taipei Rapid Transit Corp said yesterday.

A total of 3.03 million passengers traveled on the Taipei MRT system in the 24-hour period between 6am on Thursday and 6am yesterday, an increase of 66,000 from a year earlier, company statistics showed.

With the expansion of the MRT network, ridership on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day has been growing to record-breaking numbers, the company said.

In 2014, the company inaugurated the Songshan-Xindian line that intersects with three others, allowing more people to go to New Year’s parties around Taipei 101.

About 402,000 passengers rode the Songshan-Xindian line, 829,000 rode the Tamsui-Xinyi line and about 1 million rode the Bannan line in the 24-hour period, the company said.

Taipei, Feb. 3 (CNA) The Executive Yuan said Wednesday that it could not bet on whether a mass rapid transit (MRT) line between Taipei and the country's main airport will be inaugurated before May 20, when President-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) is set to assume office.

According to Cabinet spokesman Sun Lih-chyuan (孫立群), there are no questions concerning the construction safety of the long-delayed MRT line, but he pointed out that the problem is that the one-way travel time will not fall within the 35 minutes as stipulated in the contract, mainly because the signal integration system still needs to be optimized.

He said that the aim of the Executive Yuan is to complete the hardware.

He cited Premier Simon Chang (張善政) as saying that "we have borne a child, but it will be raised by the Taoyuan Metro Corp. If the company won't raise it, it will be pointless to have the child."

Sun said that the inauguration timing for the MRT line will "respect the decision of the Taoyuan Metro Corp."

Sun made the remarks after Chang presided over a meeting to discuss 12 major policies the Cabinet is pushing before turning over power to the new administration May 20.

Sun said the participants at the meeting discussed how to handle the 12 major policies and concluded that it will continue to promote 10 policies and hand over the remaining two policies to the new administration.

The line, which has been under construction since 2006, links Taoyuan International Airport and Taipei, passing through 22 stations.

In August last year, the Transportation Ministry postponed the opening date for the line from the end of that year to the end of March 2016.

That MRT line has become a bit of a joke. This must be at least the fourth time they've pushed back the opening. I feel like I've been staring at the completed track and stations for about two years now with nothing but test runs occurring on the line

Taipei Times with CNA Excerpt
MRT airport line opening delayed until year’s end
NOT FAST ENOUGH : The trains could not reach the desired speeds in the trial runs, increasing the planned commute time by two minutes, which violates a contract

Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) officials yesterday apologized for delays to the MRT system’s connection to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport that set the project completion date back by six months.

Bowing at a news conference, Deputy Minister of Transportation and Commuications Tseng Dar-jen (曾大仁), Bureau of High Speed Rail Director-General Allen Hu (胡湘麟) and bureau chief engineer Chung Wei-li (鍾維力) apologized, saying that the launch date for the airport MRT line would be delayed.

It was the sixth delay since the project was announced in 2002. The project is to connect the airport directly to the MRT’s Taipei Main Station, stopping at Jhongli Township (中壢) and the Taoyuan High Speed Rail Station.

The MRT line is still undergoing trial runs and the primary reason for its delay is six of the 46 test items failing to meet contract standards, Hu told the news conference.

According to the contract, terminal-to-terminal MRT trains must travel at an average speed of 60kph, while trains that stop at each station must travel at an average speed of 45kph.

The trains currently travel at 57km and 42km per hour respectively, Hu said.

The speed has affected the expected time of arrival of trains on one-way trips, which was set at 35 minutes from Taipei Main Station to Taoyuan airport, the ministry said, adding that the line took 36 to 37 minutes to make a single one-way trip.

The time between trains, standing at three minutes and 15 seconds, does not meet the three minutes stated in the contract, Hu said.

Who cares?!! Just sue, Taiwan needs an airport express line like 10 years ago. It is such a pain to get from Taoyuan Airport to the city. This airport line is such a joke. I remember when i was in Taiwan in 2014 they said that the line was going to open soon. It has been nearly 2 years!

Here's an aerial video showing the works on the MRT circle line from Qizhang station to Banxin station:



Also in reference to Zidar's map ^, work has also started on the Wanda-Shulin line. They have started building the section from CKS memorial hall station to Zhonghe (8 stations). When completed it will have 21 stations.
