The Executive Yuan Approves the Addition of Gangshan 2nd Interchange for Improved Traffic

【Kaohsiung News】 The Transportation Bureau of the Kaohsiung City Government stated that the Executive Yuan officially approved the feasibility study of the addition of Gangshan 2nd Interchange to National Highway No. 1 on May 7. It is expected that Gangshan 2nd Interchange will be completed and open to traffic as early as the end of 2026 to effectively divert and relieve congested traffic from Gangshan Interchange and nearby access roads.
Traffic congestion has long been a problem on Jieshou East Road near Gangshan Interchange. In light of this, the Transportation Bureau has been planning the construction of Gangshan 2nd Interchange since 2016 to tackle the problem by diverting and relieving traffic flow from Gangshan Interchange and National Highway No. 1.
Gangshan 2nd Interchange will be located between the north of Gangshan Interchange and Kaohsiung Science Park Interchange and can be accessed by Jiasin East Road on Provincial Highway No. 28. After the completion of the interchange, the public can get on National Highway No. 1 by the new interchange instead of by access roads around downtown Gangshan and City Highway No. 186. The Transportation Bureau estimates that 40,000 cars will use Gangshan 2nd Interchange to enter National Highway No. 1 each day, which will save an average of 5 to 6 minutes.
According to the Transportation Bureau, the addition of the interchange will cost NT$1.712 billion in total. The NT$1.284 billion for the construction of the main structure of the interchange will come from the National Highway Construction and Management Fund, while the Kaohsiung City Government will be responsible for the NT$428 million for land use and access road improvement.
Director-General Chang Shu-chuan of the Transportation Bureau said that the project has long been supported by local legislators and representatives since its feasibility study began in 2016. With the feasibility study being approved, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications will take over the planning and design, environmental impact comparative analysis, and construction of the project. The planning and design is expected to start in the second half of this year. The interchange will be completed and open to traffic as early as 2026 provided that all works proceed as scheduled.
