Project Overview

The safe operations of Taiwan's freeways and expressways which stretch for a combined length of 1,300 kilometers relies heavily upon traffic control systems and an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). After setting up a modern traffic control system and Advanced Transportation Management Systems (ATMS) to monitor and manage traffic on the overall Taiwan freeway and expressway network comprising

  • Eight (8) freeways - National Freeway Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, and

  • Twelve (12) expressways - Taiwan Provincial Highway Nos. 62, 64, 66, 68, 72, 74, 76, 78, 82, 84, 86 and 88;

new generations of technology for equipment and facilities are constantly being developed and upgraded into the system. The system helps speed up traveling time on the freeways and expressways and enables users to obtain real-time traffic information from mobile and cellular devices and communications. Having a unified control system greatly benefits transportation on the overall network and further promotes transportation safety.

Types of equipment and facilities on the 8 freeways and 12 expressways serving all of Taiwan include:


  • Data collection systems.

  • Data and information display systems.

  • Graphic signaling display systems.

  • Traffic control systems.

  • Closed circuit television systems.

  • Telephone systems.

  • Radio systems.

  • Central computer systems.

  • Tunnel emergency broadcasting systems.

  • Telecommunication systems and power supply systems.

  • Improvements to the functions and performance of facilities at existing regional traffic control centers, and

  • a “Traffic Information Management Coordination and Command Center”
