As a part of vital Chaozhou Railway Improvement Project, this Project will involve changes to the Kaohsiung Rail Underground Program including the relocation of the Kaohsiung station to Chaozhou; the establishment of a new Chaozhou train station; and the electrification of a section of dual track between Pingtung and Chaozhou.
Elevating the railway and eliminating surface crossings will be necessary components. The Project will provide a safer public transportation network in the Pingtung City area and create increased potential for urban development.
- The elevated viaduct works will run from Liu-Kwai-Tsu Station to the north of Guangdong South Road, for a total length of 3.4 kilometers.
- New, electrified double tracks will be placed between two stations, from the TRA Pingtung Line Liu-Kwai-Tsu Station (UK22K + 293) to just south of Pingtung Station at the Guangdong South Road viaduct (UK25K + 694).
- A new elevated train station at Pingtung will be designed to include two island platforms, four tracks and a 3-story railway station facility.
- The station design will include a 1st floor main hall (including ticketing areas); a cargo/luggage room and commercial shops; a 2nd floor main hallway (including the administrative area and commercial shops); and a 3rd floor elevated platform.
TYLI Taiwan will be responsible for the design of railway station and viaduct, civil engineering services; railway construction; electrical-mechanical details; and construction management.
