Alis­han Rail­way to re­sume its nor­mal oper­a­tions Wed­nes­day

The China Post - - LOCAL -

The sec­tion of the Alis­han For­est Rail­way be­tween Chi­ayi and Fenchihu is sched­uled to re­turn to nor­mal on Wed­nes­day as the line re­cov­ers from dam­age cre­ated by Typhoon Soude­lor, the Tai­wan Rail­ways Ad­min­is­tra­tion (TRA) said Mon­day.

Sev­eral parts of the for­est rail­way were ob­structed by fallen tree branches and rocks dur­ing the typhoon, forc­ing the TRA to sus­pend ser­vice on the pop­u­lar tourist rail line.

Ex­cept the sec­tion be­tween Chi­ayi and Fenchihu, the other part of the tourist rail­way was back to nor­mal oper­a­tions on Mon­day.

The TRA said rail­way main­te­nance is ex­pected to be com­pleted by Tues­day, and the line will re­sume nor­mal oper­a­tions on Wed­nes­day.

Mean­while, the Maokong Gon­dola sys­tem in Taipei is sched­uled to re­sume oper­a­tions on Aug. 15, Taipei Rapid Transit Cor­po­ra­tion (TRTC) said.
