The Jumping Skyline: The Beautification Project of the Tunnels of Xinyi Expressway in Taipei City

The beautification project of the tunnels of Xinyi Expressway in Taipei City has, for the first time, blended into landmark buildings of Xinyi Plan Area such as Taipei 101, Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall and so on. Like the jumping skyline, the decorations lead the passengers to the center of Taipei City with a great imagination and expectation.

Xinyi Expressway connects Xinyi and Wenshan Districts of Taipei. It has been 10 years after its launch in 2005. Through periodical patrol and maintenance of tunnels along the expressway, the New Construction Office of Public Works Department of Taipei City discovered a large amount of dust accumulated on the wall surface that seriously damaged the tunnel appearance.

They government has therefore compiled a budget of over 20 million to carry out the beautification. The project is applied in Xiangshan Tunnel and Wenshan Tunnel. The Office firstly used high-pressure jet stream to wash out dusts on the surface and then repaired cracks and leaking on the tunnel surface to extend the life of tunnels; then the wall surfaces were painted for beautification.
