Construct an Smart Transportation System, and Establish Four Major Smart Corridors
To boost the efficiency of transportation and promote industrial development and competitiveness, clusters with industrial development in the greater Kaohsiung area have been integrated, expanded and put into use through the Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). Information on freeways and expressways in the greater Kaohsiung area is combined with that on surface roads in the metropolitan area to establish 4 major ITS Corridors in the greater Kaohsiung area: the National Highway No. 10 Cishan-Meinong Cultural Tourism ITS Corridor, the Provincial Highway No. 88 Dafa Industrial Park ITS Corridor, the National Highway No. 1 Kaohsiung Science Park ITS Corridor, and the Provincial Highway No. 17 Linyuan Industrial Park ITS Corridor. These ITS Corridors help road users save time on traveling between industrial clusters in greater Kaohsiung, effectively break the traffic bottleneck in industrial parks, and enhance the overall efficiency of transportation.
