At 5:41 a.m. on Aug. 16, an earthquake struck Chiayi County. There were no reports of serious damage in Chiayi County or Chiayi City, but landslides and rockslides occurred along the Channaoliao Road section of the Alishan Forest Railway, displacing rail tracks.
At the 22-kilometer-and-380-meter section of Channaoliao Road, landslides and rockslides occurred as a result of the heavy rain last night and the earthquake early this morning. Rail tracks were displaced horizontally and sustained damage.
The Alishan Forest Railway and Cultural Heritage Office said all sections of the railway are inspected every day before trains depart. The damage to the Channaoliao Road section affects travel between Chiayi Station and Fenchihu Station. Meanwhile, no damage was found on the three branch lines located inside the Alishan National Scenic Area, and they are operating normally.
We inspected Zhaoping Line, Chushan Line, and Senmu Line inside the national scenic area and did not find anything unusual, so they are operating normally.
The office said it has already contacted the company contracted to handle repairs, and repairs will be carried out weather permitting. It estimates it will take four working days to complete the repairs. The office hopes to resume normal operations as quickly as possible.
