The Kaohsiung LRT project – Phase 1 is the first project of light rail in Taiwan and marks the beginning of a new era in terms of transport in urban centres in the country. 

Steconfer’s scope of works included project management, procurement of locally and internationally sourced materials, surveying, manpower, equipment, quality and safety management regarding its scope. 

The project’s design included approximately 19,2 km of single track containing: 

  • a 700 m viaduct 
  • 31 turnouts 
  • 1 depot with 6lines, 1 washing track, 1 lifting track, 2 light maintenance tracks and 1 underfloor wheel lathe.
