Construction and Planning Agency, Ministry of the Interior held the seminar of “Implementation Plan for 2017 City Road and Barrier-Free Pedestrian Environment Evaluation” on October 25, 2017 to announce the evaluation results of 2017, and Taipei City Government has won the first place of the Excellence Award for 2 straight years and the first place for 5 straight years through the overall ratings.

By removing obstacles, law enforcement of traffic violation, improving private areas by leveling pedestrian arcades and keeping scooters out of pedestrian arcades, removing public sidewalk bollards and improving wheelchair ramps, Taipei City Government has gradually improved the pedestrian environment in Taipei City step by step every year. In recent years, Taipei City Government has been actively promoting the people-oriented policies to build a barrier-free pedestrian environment, and the “Sponge City Project” to mitigate the heat island effect.

New Construction Office has proposed new road maintenance projects every year. In addition to setting up the Management and Maintenance Plan for City Road and Man-made Slopes and testing the filling materials for pipeline excavation and permeable paving methods, New Construction Office has also introduced “Taipei City Pipeline Excavation Construction Project” to build a partnership among all pipeline units in order to improve the service quality of the roads in the city together.

There is an old saying, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” The roads have to be maintained and updated step by step daily and managed efficiently to provide citizens with traffic safety and convenience. Through passing the evaluations and gaining the evaluation committee’s recognition, it not only shows the enthusiasm of New Construction Office on serving the citizens but also grants great encouragement and honor to all the maintenance staff of Taipei City. New Construction Office indicates that they will make more efforts in the future to create a more friendly and comfortable pedestrian environment for citizens and to provide them with a better quality of life.

Urban Landscape Planning for Taipei 2017 Universiade: Pavement Rehabilitation for Access Roads around the Stadium The City started the planning for the pavement rehabilitation plan in 2016, which included road section investigation, budget estimation, direction of execution, cross-departmental cooperation, contract formulation and other discussions, in order to complete the overall construction by July 2017 to welcome foreign guests, while enabling our citizens to also experience the upgraded City.

Due to the large volume of the overall construction, the New Construction Office implemented some construction works in advance last year, first completing the pavement replacement construction of Beining Rd., Bade Rd. and Zhengqi Bridge. This year, the four offices under the Public Works Department: New Construction Office, Hydraulic Engineering Office, Geotechnical Engineering Office, and Sewerage Systems Office, jointly implemented the pavement rehabilitation plan for 12 roads. To date, the pavement rehabilitation of Sections 1 & 2, Keelung Rd. (Xinhai Rd. to Bade Rd. section), slow traffic lane on Dunhua North Rd. (Minquan E. Rd. to Civic Boulevard section), approach road to Taipei Bridge (from the bridge exiting section on Chongqing North Rd. to the head of the bridge on Dalong St.) and Section 3, Chongqing North Rd. (Minzu West Rd. to Dunhuang Rd. section) and expansion joint leveling work on the Jianguo Elevated Bridge (south of Civic Boulevard) have been completed. All road sections are expected to be completed by July 2017 in the hope of a better city appearance and road services.

Mayor Ko inspects Universiade track and field venue and races with competitors to experience the international standard track Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade stadium refurbishment project: the refurbishment of Taipei Stadium’s track (including warm-up venue) was completed on March 29, 2017, and obtained Level 1 certification from the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) ahead of schedule on April 4, 2017. A 2-day test run was conducted on April 7, 2017 to verify the new competition venue. The Mayor personally experienced the venue, and cheered for the competitors, announcing the approaching Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade.

Taipei Stadium will be the main competition and training venue for the track and field events in the Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade, as well as the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies, hence an important place for the City’s Universiade. Besides a full refurbishment of the track surface, the main works of this project also include the addition of straight track, upgrading of takeoff board, adjustment of run-up lane, sand pit, shot put field, etc. The refurbishment of the warm-up venue includes excavation of the natural lawn in the north and resurfacing it with synthetic rubber, removal of the javelin field and discus ring, refurbishing night lighting, etc. Besides catering to the requirements of various official competitions of the Universiade, it also provides the public with a better and more comfortable place for exercise when the competition ends.

The New Construction Office said the refurbishment works on Taipei Stadium and warm-up venue include track excavation and resurfacing, which is highly subject to the weather. However, with the effort of the construction team, the two venues together with Shih-hsin Hall’s diving venue, which they were put in charge of, were completed on March 29, 2017, meeting the deadline and required quality. The track and field venue obtained IAAF certification on April 4, 2017, well ahead of the scheduled end-of-May 2017 target, officially becoming the track and field venue for the Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade.

The main contractor of this project is Fortune Construction Co., Ltd., with Wanbang Architects & Associates in charge of design and supervision. Upon completion of the project, the Department of Sports will be in charge of arranging a series of test competitions to verify that the quality of the facilities meets international competition requirements, getting ready to welcome the Universiade to be held on August 19, 2017.

The Universiade requires 60 venues, including 2 new, 53 refurbished, and 5 venues which will require only decoration before the competition. As on April 4, 2017, 49 out of the 53 venues to be refurbished were completed, and the remaining 4 together with the new venues are at the end of the main project phase.

Countdown to Taipei 2017 Universiade Sees Major Progress in Stadium Construction: Taipei Stadium and Shih-hsin Hall will be Completed as Designed, On-Schedule by the End of March The "Taipei 2017 Universiade Stadium Renovation - Taipei Stadium (Warming Up Field) and Shih-hsin Hall of University of Taipei (Tianmu Campus)", with which Taipei City’s New Construction Office is entrusted, began on September 25, 2016 and was scheduled for completion in 180 calendar days, on March 29, 2017.

Taipei Stadium is the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies of Taipei 2017 Universiade, and the main site and warming up field of track competitions, while the Shih-hsin Hall is the official diving venue. The renovation for both stadiums is extremely important to the Universiade event held by Taipei City. This construction, mainly in accordance with the "2017 Taipei Summer Universiade", includes lighting improvement, competition and auxiliary space renovation, existing sports and auxiliary facilities renovation, etc. The renovation of Taipei Stadium includes additional straight tracks, track re-pavement, take-off board renewal, runway adjustment, the landing sand pit, the shot put field, etc. The renovation of the warming up field includes the re-pavement of the existing synthetic rubber tracks, the conversion of the northern natural lawn into a synthetic rubber coating, removal of the existing javelin field and discus field, night-time lighting renovation, etc. The renovation of Shih-hsin Hall includes the diving pool renovation, interior space adjustment according to the sports venue requirements, the additional training site for diving dryland workout on the 3rd floor, and 2 elevators to meet the requirements of a friendly, barrier-free environment. The completion of the renovation project will not only satisfy all the official competition requirements of the Universiade games, but also continue to provide the public with an outstanding and comfortable sports venue after the event.

The New Construction Office explained that the renovations of Taipei Stadium and Warming-Up Field both involve track removal and re-pavement, whose progress is heavily affected by the weather. The contractors were asked to speed up the work whenever the weather was good, which resulted in the construction progress being ahead of schedule on both fields; even the diving venue, Shih-hsin Hall, will be completed as designed and on schedule by the end of March.

Fortune Construction Co. Ltd. is in charge of the construction of this project, while Wanbang Architects are in charge of the design and construction supervision. The project is planned for completion by March 29, 2017, and receive the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) Road Race Gold Label before May. The completed venues will be turned over to Taipei City’s Department of Sports for a series of trial races to verify whether the quality of the facilities complies with international competition requirements, and to get ready for the Universiade on August 19, 2017.
