TAIPEI STARTS DIGGING..... BUT THE METRO COMES LATER

Approval was given last July to a project that will put Taipei's main station and 3km of the west coast trunk line below ground through the city centre. This paves the way for a 10 minute service of electric commuter trains that will be designated line S1 of a proposed four-line mass rapid transit (MRT) network. A separate MRT authority is to be set up this year to construct and operate the other three lines which total 73km. (TRRL)
