On March 16th, Taoyuan City Mayor Cheng Wen-Tsan delivered a progress report at the 5th Recurring Meeting of the 2nd Term of Taoyuan City Council. Mayor Cheng said that Taoyuan has successfully prevented the Taoyuan General Hospital coronavirus cluster infection from worsening. This achievement showed the public the resilience of Taoyuan and the hard work of healthcare workers. Moreover, the City Government has continued boosting various infrastructure projects, including Railway Construction, Taoyuan Aerotropolis, Asia Silicon Valley Development Agency, transportation, water environment, and culture. All projects are orderly implemented on time. Also, Taoyuan City Government has achieved amazing results in developing an intelligent city, sports city, and low carbon sustainable city. In the meantime, the promotions of the welfare of the younger generation, social housing, long-term care, public nursery, and quasi-publicization of public kindergarten are fruitful. In the future, the Government will continue to fulfill the expectations of the citizens through the cooperation model of the City Government and the City Council, making Taoyuan citizens happy.

 

Mayor Cheng said that during the Taoyuan General Hospital coronavirus cluster infection, the Central and City Governments took effective measures such as precise epidemic investigation, stricter quarantine, and specimen collection and testing to safeguard the Taoyuan General Hospital. Meanwhile, the Department of Environmental Protection and 33rd Chemical Warfare Group of the 6th Army Command performed the City's coronavirus sterilization. The City Government, the City Council, and citizens worked together to prevent the epidemic. The Mayor thanked all the healthcare workers and epidemic prevention teams for their efforts. Also, the City Government made ex-gratia payments to the medical, nursing, anti-epidemic, and cleaning personnel who got infected while working or were quarantined. The City is the first to do so in Taiwan, representing the City Government's appreciation and support for the epidemic prevention personnel. After the Spring Festival, in response to the end of the cluster, the City Government announced the lifting of various activity restrictions and encouraged tourism plans, including Glamorous Taoyuan Must-See Attractions Tours, self-guided tours, factory tours, leisure farms tours, and school outings, etc. The Mayor was also grateful to the City Council for supporting many subsidy and relief plans, allowing tourists to reappear and rejuvenate the economy.

 

Mayor Cheng explained that Taoyuan is the fastest-growing among the six municipalities. It has overcome all difficulties of major infrastructure projects one after another. Take Railway Construction as an example. The main system of MRT Green Line is scheduled to be completed in 2026. To expand Green Line to the Zhongli area, a comprehensive planning has been carrying out. The feasibility report of extending the Green Line to the Daxi area has been sent for deliberation. To expand MRT Sanying Line to the Bade, a comprehensive plan has been carrying out. The comprehensive planning report of MRT Brown Line has been submitted to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for deliberation. A22 Laojiexi Station of the Zhongli section is also scheduled to be put in service in 2022 to expand the Taoyuan Airport MRT.

 

Mayor Cheng said that the Taoyuan Railway Underground Project is of vital and lasting importance. In September 2020, the Executive Yuan approved a comprehensive planning report. The Central Government will bear 75% of the funds and the Local Government will bear 25%, effectively reducing the City Government's future financial burden. The project is about 18 kilometers in length. The construction of Pingzhen Station is expected to start in 2021. A temporary rear station in Zhongli Station will be set to make it functional first. It is expected that the whole construction of the Taoyuan Railway Underground Project will start in April 2022. Currently, pioneer projects including Taoyuan Station and Zhongli Station have started along with the MRT construction. The projects are progressing quite smoothly.

 

Mayor Cheng pointed out that the development phase of the Taoyuan Aerotropolis Project has started. Furthermore, the 10 major preferential measures launched by the City Government have been accepted by landlords and residents within Taoyuan Aerotropolis. The Taoyuan Aerotropolis is currently undergoing resettlement and demolition preparations. More industries and universities will be introduced subsequently.

 

Mayor Cheng also pointed out that Asia Silicon Valley Development Agency has initiated the construction of two highlights in Taoyuan. The construction of the Taoyuan Convention and Exhibition Center has started in October 2020, and the exhibition hall and convention center will be completed in 2022 and 2023, respectively. The online bidding of Innovation and Research Center of Asia Silicon Valley is scheduled to be reopened in April this year. It will develop into an innovative park for smart applications such as 5G and AIoT.

 

Mayor Cheng also stated that in terms of traffic construction, the addition of interchanges and ramps on National Freeway 3 and 1 has been approved by the Executive Yuan and will be completed in July 2021. Provincial Highway No. 42 will be expanded. The expansion work is divided into three phases. The first phase is scheduled to be completed this year. Taoyuan Chang Gung Transfer Station is scheduled to be completed and opened in June 2022. Besides, the City Government also has carried out 16 parking lot projects one by one with the received Forward-Looking Infrastructure-- Urban and Rural Construction Funding.

 

Mayor Cheng also said that the City Government continues to foster a water-friendly environment and improve sewers and rivers. Among them, the Water Recycling Center of Zhongli and Puding Sewage Treatment will be set up soon. It will effectively facilitate river governance and sewer construction.

 

Mayor Cheng mentioned that the constructions of the two important cultural landmarks of Taoyuan-- Taoyuan Main Public Library and Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts -- are also scheduled. Taoyuan Main Public Library is planned to be completed next year and Taoyuan Museum of Fine Arts in 2024. Also, according to the Invest in Taiwan Program of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, about 20% of investors and more than NTD$2,429 billion were attracted to Taoyuan. The overall investment ranks first in Taiwan, representing that companies are optimistic about Taoyuan's future development.
