Third Stage


Third Stage of Taipei MRT
(Planned MRT Routes)

Minsheng-Xizhi Line

A feasibility study of the Minsheng-Xizhi line, including development of surrounding land, was approved by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications in December 2011. The preliminary plan recommends that the line be built partly underground and partly elevated. It will start from Dadaocheng Station beneath Minsheng West Road in Taipei City, then run along Minsheng West and East roads, pass through Minsheng Community, and extend beneath the Keelung River to Neihu District, before changing to an elevated mode and ending at Xintai 5th Road in Xizhi District, New Taipei City.

The 17-kilometer line will have 15 stations and one depot located at the Shehou area in Xizhi. Comprehensive planning, including studies related to development of surrounding land, began in December 2012 and has not yet been approved by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications.

Shezi, Shilin and Beitou Light Rail Lines

An LRT system with two routes is recommended for the Shezi, Shilin, and Beitou areas. One line will run east to west across the study area and the other north to south across the study area.

1. North-South Route

This will run from Beitou through Zhoumei and Shezi along Chongqing North Road and end at the Xinzhuang line's Daqiaotou Station. The route will be about 9.1 km long and connect 10 stations and one depot.

2. East-West Route

This will run from Shezi through Zhoumei along Fuguo Road and Zhongcheng Road before terminating near the Tianmu Baseball Stadium. The route will be about 7.5 km long and connect 11 stations and one depot.

Both routes will be constructed in an elevated mode. The completed corridor studies of these two routes have been submitted to the Executive Yuan via the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for approval.

North-South Line

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 north & south sections of the Circular line, run along Jingye 3rd Road, Lequn 2nd Road, Ruiguang Road, and Xinhu 1st Road. It will then pass under the Keelung River and run beneath Jiankang Road, Guangfu North and South roads, Keelung Road, Xinhai Road, Xinsheng South Road, and Siyuan Road, before going underneath the Xindian River and connecting with Chenggong Road in Yonghe and Zhonghe districts, New Taipei City. It will terminate on Jinping Road in Zhonghe District. The 16.6-kilometer line will have 15 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. It will connect with 10 MRT lines: the Wenhu, Xindian, Ankeng, Zhonghe, Banqiao, and Xinzhuang lines, the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Access MRT System, the Luzhou line, the Shezi, Shilin, Beitou light rail lines, and the Tamsui line. The Executive Yuan has approved two-phase construction of 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. Plans for the north and south sections of the Circular line (regarded as separate projects from Phase I) will be submitted to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for review.

Wanda-Zhonghe-Shulin Line Phase II

The Wanda-Zhonghe-Shulin line Phase II will continue along Jincheng Road, New Taipei City where Phase I ends then switch to an elevated mode after passing Minde Road. It will cross over Chenglin Bridge, run along Jincheng Road, Zhonghua Road, Bade Street, and Daan Road then turn to Zhongzheng Road before ending at the Xinzhuang line's Huilong Station. The 13.3-kilometer route will have two underground stations and 11 elevated stations.

Ankeng Line

The Ankeng line will run at ground level from the planned Erbazi Botanical Garden and along Ankeng No. 1 Road (under planning). It will switch to an elevated mode for travel along Anhe Road, turn right at the east-south side of Xinhe Elementary School to cross the Xindian River, and connect to the under-construction Circular line in Shisizhang District. The Ankeng line will total 7.8 km and be a light-rail transit (LRT) system with nine stations and one depot located on the west side of Erbazi Botanical Garden.

Sanying Line

The Sanying line will be constructed as an LRT system on elevated tracks. It will run from Dingpu Station on the Tucheng line along Zhongyang Road to Sanxia then cross National Freeway No. 3 to Yingge. Since the Sanying line is fully located in New Taipei City, the New Taipei City government will submit the comprehensive planning report to the central government for review and approval.
