Project Overview

The Taiwan West Coast Expressway, also known as Taiwan Provincial Highway No. 61, is another major north-south arterial serving the western corridor of Taiwan, but travels for a length of 308 kilometers alongside Taiwan's west coast all the way from New Taipei City in northern Taiwan to the Cigu District of Tainan in southern Taiwan. The major cities along its route heading from north to south are New Taipei City, Hsinchu, Taichung and Tainan.

Currently, approximately 301 kilometers of the route has been completed and opened to traffic for operation, while the remaining portion still to be implemented is an elevated section located in the Hsinchu area.

 

The project features a number of new bridges and viaduct structures that utilize frontage roads underneath the viaducts to better serve the local traffic in communities along its route length.

CECI has been providing preliminary and detailed design services for a number of sections of this expressway for more than twenty years now. Starting from the northern end and heading southbound, sections of the project in which CECI has been involved in are listed as follows:

  • Bali to Linkou: Preliminary and Detailed Design of a 6.475 kilometer long section located in New Taipei City.

  • Linkou to Dayuan: Preliminary and Detailed Design of a 12.475 kilometer long section from New Taipei City to Taoyuan.

  • Dayuan to Guanyin: Preliminary and Detailed Design of a 14.3 kilometer long section located in Taoyuan.
