Transportation Access to Taiwan’s Tech Corridor Approved

Planning is crucial to ensure the greater success of any digital plan. Taiwan’s biggest tech corridor in the South, by virtue of size and possible computing power, is getting the support it needs from key government agencies. Its needed transportation access has been given the nod.

Qiaotou Science Park has been promoted as the biggest technology corridor yet for Southern Taiwan. Recently, a slew of the country’s government agencies met and approved greater access to the computing hub. Specifically, the National Development Council of the Executive Yuan held a review in a recent meeting and the body duly gave ascent to the needed transportation access plans.

Council and relevant ministries and agencies of the Central Government that gave approval were the cabinet members of the Executive Yuan, subordinate agencies of the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Ministry of Transportation and Communications. In addition, Kaohsiung Deputy Mayor Lin Chin-jung led representatives of the Transportation Bureau, the Public Works Bureau, the Water Resources Bureau and the Land Administration Bureau to attend that meeting.

The results of the detailed that The Qiaotou Science Park Access Transportation Overall Project proposed by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) have been reviewed and approved. Consequently, The MOST will submit the project to the Executive Yuan for final approval in accordance with the procedures.

The Qiaotou Science Park Access Transportation Overall Project proposed by the Ministry of Science and Technology includes three constructions:

  • ramps and connecting roads of the Qiaotou Science Park
  • prioritised sections of Provincial Highway 39 extension line
  • 3 new bridges and culverts

As per the plan, the total construction budget for this project is about NT$ 15.155 billion (US$ 513,920,598.80); it is expected to be completed between 2026 and 2028.

Deputy Mayor Lin Chin-jung says the Qiaotou Science Park will connect Luzhu and the Southern Taiwan Science Park, and become the most important tech corridor in southern Taiwan. For that, the key to the success of the Science Park lies in the construction of its access transportation.

To speed up the progress of the construction project, the city government will provide assistance in the urban planning changes and land expropriation for the prioritised sections of the Provincial Highway 39 extension line, and ramps and connecting roads. Furthermore, for the prioritised sections of the Provincial Highway 39 extension line, the design, construction and subsequent temporary road management will also be assisted. A turnkey solution will be taken, and it is expected to be completed in mid-2026, a year and a half earlier than the original schedule.

According to the Transportation Bureau, once the three constructions are completed, the accessibility to Qiaotou Science Park will be effectively improved, and logistics and employee commuting will be more efficient by connecting expressways and surrounding local roads, which is beneficial for the future development of Qiaotou Science Park.

All this means the digital transformation of Taiwan is getting the attention it needs to grow. The country has been laser-focused on ramping its digital adoption in accordance with its decision to be an ICT powerhouse in the region.
