Future Vision for the Dazhi Rd. Connecting Project Shared by Mayor Lu
This is the critical step of the Dazhi Rd. Connecting Project! Within less than one year after her inauguration, Mayor Lu Shiow-Yen successfully obtained the consensus of the 24 owners of “Da Zhi Hui College” Building to re-initiate the 13-year long overdue Dazhi Rd. Connecting Project. Finally, yesterday (the 13th), the project officially commenced and is expected to be completed by the end of August. Mayor Lu today inspected the construction site and she emphasized that with the priority of safety, major construction projects shall not be stopped during the pandemic prevention and control period! On behalf of 2.81 million citizens, she once again showed her appreciation to all owners of the building for their support to the development of Taichung.
The dismantling of the “Da Zhi Hui College” Building structure began yesterday. A crane was used to hang two excavators from the 12th floor roof. Big steel teeth were used for breaking and incorporated with a hydraulic shear to gradually dismantle the structure from the top to bottom floors. Director General of the Construction Bureau, Chen Ta-Tian, after the preparation of various safety measures, especially went to the 12th floor to carefully check the progress then briefed Mayor Lu.
The Mayor said, “This is a historical moment!” Dismantling the Da Zhi Hui Building requires smooth surrounding traffic flow, protection safety of adjacent buildings and maintenance of quietness at night time. Therefore, the Taichung City Government cannot use large-scale explosions and has adopted a refined method for dismantling the floors gradually. Dismantling one floor will take a week and the whole project is expected to be completed in June before continuing with the extensive new road development project of Dazhi Rd. Councilman Chiao Su-Chan pointed out that after the connection of Dazhi Rd., development of areas in front and at the back of the train station, including the East, South, Central and West District, shall be facilitated. Councilman Li Li-Hua also recognized Mayor Lu’s efficiency in policy implementation by communicating properly with owners of the Building and persuading them to cooperate with the Taichung City Government for the benefit of Taichung citizens.
Hung Tsung-Yi, Director of Xinzhuang Li in the East District said this project has been long expected by his residents. In the future, the completion of the project will facilitate development of the nearby old town areas and create unlimited business opportunities for stores. Owner Chen of a cooking instrument store said the dismantling project was long overdue and several mayors could not initiate the project. He thanked Mayor Lu for her efforts to re-initiate the project within one year after her inauguration and for the prosperity of the rear station area.
Today, Mayor Lu accompanied by the Director General of the Construction Bureau Chen Ta-Tian, Director General of the Transportation Bureau, Yeh Chao-Fu, and Director General of the Information Bureau, Huang Kuo-Wei to inspect the dismantling project of the Da Zhi Hui Building. Deputy President of the Building, Lin Wen-Tsung, Councilman Chiao Su-Chan and Li Li-Hua as well as representatives of Councilman Cheng Kung-Chin, Lo Ting-Wei and Ho Min-Chen also visited the site.
