Renewed Pedestrian Walkway Planned for Roosevelt Road

In light of the World Design Capital 2016, the New Construction Office (NCO) of the Public Works Department will be renovating the pedestrian sidewalks along Roosevelt Road Section 5 and 6 in a more non-conventional fashion.

With a total distance of 2.6 kilometers, the renovated section spans the area from Keelung Road to Beixin Bridge. Sidewalk tile refurbishment will be the main objective for the section from Keelung Road to Xinglong Road. Pedestrian walkway overhaul and expansion will be the focus for the zone between Xinglong Road and Beixin Bridge. In addition to creating a pedestrian-friendly environment and maximizing green space, the project will also install a bicycle lane for cyclists and permeable paving to maximize water penetration to slow temperature rise effects in urban areas.The plan also includes building an outdoor gallery recounting the history of Wanxin Railway and Liugongjun irrigation canal at the triangular plaza bordered by MRT Jingmei Station and the mechanical and electricity facilities of MRT Wanlong Station. According to NCO, the agency organized several opinion exchange sessions with members of neighborhoods affected by the construction project. The office indicated that the final result is the collaboration among the city government, local communities, and the contracted firm responsible for design and planning. Constructions will begin next year, with the completion date slated for the end of 2015.
