Minister of MOTC Reports on Holiday Traffic Control|中秋連假將至 林佳龍立院進行疏運報告
Thursday, October 1 will mark the start of the Mid-autumn Festival holidays. In a legislative reporting session, legislators urged the Ministry of Transportation and Communications to reinforce the traffic APP and the promotion on the new live streaming service so that road users would be benefited.
Only high-occupancy vehicles can be permitted to enter National Freeway No. 1, No. 3 and No. 5 going southbound from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. on October 1st.
At 10 a.m. sharp, the Freeway Bureau had a live streaming trial-run on traffic forecasts for the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival holidays on its Facebook fan page "Hi Freeway". This is one of the MOTC's leveled-up measures to tackle the holiday congestion by streaming a live traffic information service at fixed times. However, only 23 out of the 60,000 fans were online and watching the forecast. A DPP legislator said the new measure might not be effective if the number of audiences remains this low.
As you can see on the internet, the Freeway Bureau is already doing a trial-run. (The live broadcasting will run at certain times) But only 23 people were online and watching. (We put the video up there so that road users can access the clip at any time). Only 23 out of 23 million people were watching. You should let more people know that this service is available and you need to improve the broadcasting quality.
The legislator also urged the MOTC to update the "Happiness Highway" APP managed by the Directorate General of Highway to show clearer alternative routes for the road users. The MOTC said the most congested route during the Mid-Autumn Festival and Double Ten National Day Holidays will still be National Freeway No. 5. This time, according to the ministry, it will adjust ramp closure and move the high-occupancy control to an earlier time. Review of such measurements will also be carried out after the holidays.
In order to tackle the heavy congestion on Freeway No. 5, the ministry is also planning on a trial run to allow the public to ride the intercity bus for free on the first and the last day of consecutive holidays.
We are planning to carry out a trial run during consecutive holidays to allow the public to ride free on buses that run along the Freeway No.5 route on the first day and last day of the holiday. Or we could allow the public to ride free for the entire duration of the holiday. We will observe the effectiveness of this policy.
Meanwhile, a fire broke out at the engine control room at Directorate General of Highway's Miaoli Toufen branch on September 27. Luckily, the point of fire was at the roof while the data transmitting equipment were located on the first and second floor, and therefore access to traffic information will not be affected.
民進黨立委 林俊憲表示：「已經在試播了，你現在網路看得到。（那個是我們特定的時間。) 只有23個人在看線上啦！（跟委員報告，那個我們是放在那邊，隨時可以去看。) 2300萬人，只有23人在看，你要讓更多人知道，而且要改善他的播報品質。」
