Earthquake, Rain Damage Alishan Forest Railway Section|地震+豪雨 林鐵樟腦寮段土石滑落軌道橫移

After several days of heavy rain, Chiayi County experienced another calamity when an earthquake struck during the early hours of Aug. 16. On the Channaoliao Road section of the Alishan Forest Railway, landslides and rockslides occurred and rail tracks were displaced. Luckily, no injuries were reported. The Alishan Forest Railway and Cultural Heritage Office says it has suspended travel between Chiayi Station and Fenchihu Station. It will take four working days to complete repairs.

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.

清晨5點41分的地震,嘉義縣市並沒有太大的災情傳出,但是卻讓阿里山森林鐵路樟腦寮這個路段,邊坡的土石滑落,導致鐵軌道橫移損壞。

阿里山林鐵處副處長 周恆凱表示:「阿里山林鐵22公里、380公尺處的樟腦寮路段,因為昨夜的豪雨,以及今日凌晨的地震,造成上邊坡的土石滑落,鐵軌道橫移損壞。」

林鐵處表示,每日發車之前,各路段都會進行鐵路的巡檢工作,樟腦寮這個路段主要影響嘉義到奮起湖這個線路,而阿里山國家公園內原有的3條火車支線,經路線巡檢後都沒有狀況,仍然正常行駛。

阿里山林鐵處副處長 周恆凱表示:「遊樂區內的沼平線、祝山線、神木線,巡查結果都沒有異狀,正常營運。」

林鐵處強調,已經聯繫維修的廠商,配合天氣的情況進行維修,預計要四個工作天,也希望能在最短時間修復,來恢復行駛。
