Wuyang Elevated Freeway, Taiwan

20 April 2013

The second and largest stage of the Wuyang Elevated Freeway opens to traffic in Taiwan. It runs from Wugu near Taipei to Yangmei (hence, the name).

While it is actually a widening of toll freeway 1, it runs entirely separate for all but 2 kilometers where it briefly touches ground level at Zhongli for merging traffic. The viaduct is usually advertised as being 40 kilometers long, but is in fact 35 + 12 kilometers long, the eastern segment being an extension of the older elevated structure through Taipei.
