STECONFER is preparing resources to move on at Kaohsiung LRT Phase 1.
The remaining 2,6 double track kilometres are set to be finalized by 2017 second trimester giving a new empowerment to Kaohsiung citizens.
We are proudly happy to contribute in the city growth with a gorgeous and clean transportation method.
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.
The bid was won by the Consortium CAF-Evergreen and the contract between the Kaosiung City Government Mass Rapid Transit Bureau (final client) and the winner Consortium was signed on 19th February 2013. They have divided the turnkey project in both scopes.
