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.

路況預報員:「高乘載管制部分,十月一號,國一、國三、國五南下的六到十二時,都會實施高乘載管制。」

上午十點整,高公局臉書粉絲專頁"高速小飛力",進行中秋路況預報試播,六萬名粉絲中,只有23人在線上收看,以圖資定時預報路況直播,是交通部這次精進疏運的主力措施之一。立委認為,若以這樣的收看率,恐怕達不到宣導路況的成效。

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。」

立委也質疑,公路總局"幸福公路"APP,呈現的替代路線,根本看不清楚,呼籲交通部,要讓路況APP更便民。交通部表示,十月中秋和雙十連續假期,最瓶頸的路段仍是國道五號,這次會調整匝道封閉和提早進行高乘載管制,節後會進行檢討。未來會考慮,國五在連續假期首日和最後一日,試辦往宜蘭搭乘客運免費。

交通部長 林佳龍表示:「我們現在有規劃要試辦,就是在連假的時候,國五客運就是在放假的第一天,跟收假的當天(免費)。是不是整個連假的期間,都這樣辦理,我們會看實施的成效。」

至於週日下午,位在苗栗頭份的高公局交通控制機房電纜起火,所幸起火點在頂樓,而高公局路況資訊傳輸設備位在一樓與二樓,因此不至於影響國道及時路況資訊。
