TAIWAN High Speed Rail Corporation (THSRC) extended its services to the east of the capital on June 30 with the opening of the 9.2km extension from Taipei Railway Station to Nangang, the 12th station on the high-speed line from Kaohsiung.
A new structure for Taiwan High-Speed Rail Corporation (THSRC) came into effect on July 27, when the Ministry of Transport and Communications signed two agreements with the company to terminate the original build-operate-transfer concession for the Taipei - Kaohsiung high-speed line.
With new high-speed railways being built in areas susceptible to natural disasters, it is imperative that these railways' emergency management strategies minimise the impact of such situations on passenger safety. With Taiwan experiencing one of earth's most volatile environments, Taiwan High Speed Railway Company (THSRC) is striving to do exactly this, as Kevin Smith discovered during a trip to Taipei.
TAIWAN's Ministry of Transportation and Communications has proposed a radical financial restructuring of Taiwan High Speed Railway Corporation (THSRC) which it says will help the company overcome its continuing struggle with debt and avoid bankruptcy.
