| Third Stage of Taipei MRT|
Wanda-Zhonghe-Shulin Line Phase II
The Wanda-Zhonghe-Shulin line Phase II continues along Jincheng Road where Phase I ends, and rises to run on an elevated level after passing Minde Road. It then crosses over Chenglin Bridge, runs along Jincheng Road, Zhonghua Road, Bade Street, Daan Road, and then turns in to Zhongzheng Road before ending at the Xinzhuang line's Huilong Station. The total length of the route is 13.3 km with two underground stations and 11 elevated stations.
The Ankeng line will run at ground level from the planned Erbazi Botanical Garden and along Ankeng No.1 Road (under planning) to Anhe Road, then change to an elevated mode to travel along Anhe Road, IV-26 Planned Road, then turn right to cross the Xindian River and connect to the planned Circular line in the Shisizhang District. The line totaling 7.8 km will be a light-rail transit (LRT) system with 10 stations and one depot located on the west side of Erbazi Botanical Garden.
The corridor study of the Sanying line began in February 2003. Based on the feasibility study, the line will be constructed with an LRT system on elevated tracks from Dingpu Station on the Tucheng line, running along Zhongyang Road to Sanxia and crossing National Highway No.3 to Yingge. The corridor study report was finished at the end of 2004, and submitted to the Executive Yuan via the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for approval.
A corridor study of the Minsheng-Xizhi line was completed in December 2007. The suggestion of the preliminary study is to have the line built partly underground and partly elevated. The line will begin from Dadaocheng Station beneath Minsheng West Road in Taipei City. It will then run along Minsheng West and East Road, pass through the Minsheng Community, and extend beneath the Keelung River to the Neihu District. The line will then change to an elevated mode and end at Xintai 5th Road in New Taipei City's Xizhi District. The total length of the Minsheng-Xizhi line will be 17 km with 15 stations and one depot. The depot will be located at the Shehou Industrial District in Xizhi. The suggestions of the corridor study have not yet been approved by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.
Shezi, Shilin and Beitou Light Rail Lines
An LRT system with two lines is suggested to serve the Shezi, Shilin, and Beitou areas: One will run east-west across the study area and the other from north to south.
1. North-South Route
It will run from Beitou through Zhoumei and Shezi along Chongqing North Road and end at the Xinzhuang line's Daqiaotou Station. The total length will be about 9.1 km connecting 10 stations and one depot.
2. East-West Route
It will run from Shezi through Zhoumei along Fuguo Road, Zhongcheng Road, and terminate near the Tianmu Baseball Stadium. The total length will be about 8.8 km connecting 11 stations and one depot.
Both routes will be constructed in an elevated mode. The completed corridor study of these two routes has been submitted to the Executive Yuan via the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for approval.
The corridor study of the North-South line was completed in December 2007 and is currently being reviewed by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.
The study proposed a single route, which will begin from Jiannan Rd. Station on the Wenhu line, run along Jingye 3rd Road, Lequn 2nd Road, Ruiguang Road, and Xinhu 1st Road. The line will then pass beneath the Keelung River and run beneath Jiankang Road, Guangfu North Road, Guangfu South Road, Keelung Road, Xinhai Road, Xinsheng South Road, Siyuan Road, before going underneath the Xindian River, and connect with Chenggong Road in New Taipei City's Yonghe District, and Chenggong Road in New Taipei City's Zhonghe District, then come to an end on Jinping Road. The line will be 17.1 km, connecting 16 stations and one depot.
Circular Line - North Section & South Section
The Circular line will pass through 10 administrative districts across Taipei City and New Taipei City: Wenshan, Xindian, Zhonghe, Banqiao, Xinzhuang, Wugu, Luzhou, Sanchong, Shilin and Zhongshan. The line will connect with 10 MRT lines: the Wenhu, Xindian, Ankeng, Zhonghe, Banqiao, and Xinzhuang lines, Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Access MRT System, Luzhou line, Shezi, Shilin, Beitou Light Rail lines, and Tamsui line.
The Executive Yuan has approved the construction of the Circular line to be implemented in two phases. The Circular line Phase I will pass through Xindian, Zhonghe, Banqiao and Xinzhuang districts, and connect with five MRT lines, the Xindian, Zhonghe, Banqiao, and Xinzhuang lines, and the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Access MRT System. Implementation of the north and sSouth sections of the Circular line (regarded as separate projects from the Circular line Phase I) will be proposed to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for review.
