Nature Trail in Puli Township Cut Off After Earthquake|埔里南村里台14線生態步道 邊坡落石阻路

A severe slope collapse happened next to a nature trail in Puli Township's Nancun Borough after several days of heavy rain and an earthquake. Before the government's assistance arrived, local farmers, residents and Taipower repair workers risked their lives to remove the debris.

Taipower workers look up to see if any rocks are falling down.

(What are you going to do in there?) Fix things. (Over there by the power plant?) Yes.

Days of heavy rain have resulted in rockslides and landslides in mountainous areas. A 4.6-magnitude earthquake early on the 29th sent debris pouring down on the nature trail near Provincial Highway 14's Guanyin No. 3 Tunnel. With 20 meters of the road cut off, Taipower workers who were scheduled to make repairs in the area had to risk their lives to get in.

After being notified this morning of malfunctioning equipment, workers were dispatched for repairs. They found the road blocked and couldn't (enter) the area.

Local residents and farmers use the road every day. With access cut off, they had to climb up and over debris. The Puli Township Office sent out workers in the morning.

Our agricultural products are in there, and people and residents need the road to get in and out. The recent rain has already made transportation inconvenient and affected our products, and there's no alternate road we can use. The township office will therefore try to clear and reopen the road as soon as possible.

Puli's township chief says there have been no bids on Nancun Borough's open contract, but the road is very important to locals and it must be repaired as soon as possible. The township office will therefore try to get the necessary heavy equipment sent to the area.

台電人員戴著安全帽,還要不時抬頭看看上面還有沒有落石掉下來。

「 (你們要進去幹嘛?) 修理東西。(電廠那邊喔?) 對。」

因為連日大雨,已經讓山區的土石鬆軟,加上29號凌晨3點多發生規模4.6的有感地震,導致南投縣埔里鎮台14線觀音3號隧道旁的生態步道邊坡嚴重坍塌,雖沒有人員傷亡,但大量的石塊阻斷約20公尺的道路,原本要進入維修設備的台電人員只能冒險通過。

台電工程人員表示:「早上接到通知說,裡面的設備已經異常,本來要進去維修,可是發現道路已經崩塌,沒辦法(通行)。」

發生坍塌的地點屬於台14線中潭公路的舊址,除了台電人員,也有住戶及農民每天通行,現在道路中斷,民眾必須攀爬岩石進出,埔里鎮公所一早也到現場了解狀況。

南投縣埔里鎮長 廖志城表示:「因為裡面畢竟有我們的農產品,跟人…住戶的出入,這個時候下大雨,來造成我們交通出入不方便,也影響他們的農產品。這條路又沒有替代道路,要從這邊出入,所以說公所會趕緊先來,緊急來把這些土石坍方,先清理出一條路能通行。」

埔里鎮長表示,南村里今年度的開口契約未能標出,但由於這條路是農業、電力及國道6號隧道維修避難道路,對當地相當重要,公所會以緊急災害尋找大型機具儘速搶通。
