Express train derails, affecting more than 16,000 travelers
Excerpt

Taipei, Dec. 31 (CNA) A Tze-chiang limited express train rammed a forklift when running northbound in Changhua County Tuesday, causing its locomotive to derail and suffer severe damage, the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) said.

Although no injuries were reported among the 500 passengers, the train driver and the driver of the forklift, the accident caused delays for 55 trains, affecting as many as 16,730 commuters.

The collision occurred at a railroad crossing near Yongjing Station on the TRA West Coast line at 12:10 p.m. after the forklift got stuck on the railway tracks while trying to pass through, the TRA said in a report on the accident.

Traffic on the railway section between Yongjing and Shetou townships was fully restored by 6:19 p.m.

The TRA said that after their investigation, railway police blamed the forklift driver, surnamed Yu (游), for the collision because he violated the regulation that bans forklifts from running on roads without a permit and from crossing railway lines.

Rail connection, upgrades to exceed NT$4bn
MAKING CHANGES:A branch line to connect a high-speed rail station and a railway station in Changhua County would be finished by 2026, the transportation minister said
Dec 9, 2019
Taipei Times Exce3rpt

The government intends to spend NT$4.181 billion (US$138.96 million) on building a branch line to connect the High Speed Rail station in Changhua County with the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) station in Tianjhong Township (田中), as well as on infrastructure upgrades along the Jiji branch line (集集支線) in Nantou County, Minister of Transportation and Communications Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍) said yesterday.

Lin made the announcement during his tour of the TRA station in the township, where the high-speed rail station is also located.

The small town to the south of the county has become a popular tourist destination due to the Taiwan Rice Heaven-Tianzhong Marathon, where participants run while sampling various dishes presented by local residents along the way.

Construction on the 3km branch line is scheduled to begin next year, with the cost estimated to reach NT$1.181 billion, Lin said.

The branch line is to begin operations by 2026, he added.

The government would also spend NT$2.363 billion on upgrading the infrastructure along the TRA’s 29.75km Jiji branch line, Lin said.
