Taiwan expands high-speed rail network
Construction of new high-speed rail stations has got underway in Taiwan. The new stations in Miaoli, Changhua and Yunlin counties, all of which lie on the west coast of Taiwan, will form part of the 'western corridor' of Taiwan's high-speed rail network, which links Taipei and Kaohsiung. "The main construction is likely to start by the end of this year," Wang Shi-dian, a Deputy Section Chief of the Bureau of High Speed Rail told the China News Agency, adding that the three stations are likely to cost TW$7.5 billion (US$249 million).
