[Reporter Huang Liangjie/Kaohsiung Report] The Dashun section of Kaohsiung’s second-stage light rail is under construction today, and only one fast lane and one slow lane are left to pass. However, the traffic bureau has not changed the markings of the left-turn lanes to straight and left-turn parallel lanes, causing the inside lanes to go straight Competing with locomotives, there are about 3 or 4 intersections on the entire line where the left-turn lanes have not been adjusted. People are worried that they will be photographed by whistleblowers, and they are all crowded on the slow lanes, causing cars and locomotives to compete for lanes, resulting in a dark period of traffic.

Dashun Road, the main road connecting Gaoshi District, Sanmin District, and Lingya District, due to the fence project in front of the second-stage light rail construction, the construction will be carried out section by section. One fast and one slow 2-lane lanes pass through, while large vehicles are controlled and roadside parking is prohibited. There are suspected loopholes in the relevant supporting measures of the Transportation Bureau, and residents worry that it will bring about a dark period of traffic.

The public pointed out that Dashun Road is a one-way lane with one fast lane and one slow lane. Because the slow lane is narrow, most cars will drive in the only fast lane. The marking line shared by the left turn will cause serious competition between automobiles and motorcycles at the intersection, which will inevitably increase the accident rate.

In addition, if you are concerned about driving safety and avoid fighting for lanes, because there is only one lane for cars, only left-turn intersections are allowed on Jiangong Road, etc., and straight vehicles must drive in the left-turn lane in violation of the regulations. There was a lot of blood loss, and the MRT Bureau stated that it would ask the Transportation Bureau to improve it as soon as possible.

In order to reduce accidents on Dashun Road and avoid affecting traffic, the police strengthened the ban on the speed limit of 30 kilometers on this road section, and adopted 24-hour monitoring. Once traffic congestion occurs, the police will be dispatched immediately to minimize the impact of construction on traffic, and 86 police officers will be deployed. , to assist traffic flow at Dashun intersection, the police plan alternative roads during the construction period, they can make more use of Mingcheng Road, Tongmeng Road, Jiangong Road, Shiquan Road, and Jiuru Road adjacent to the east-west direction, Boai Road, Boai Road, On Ziyou Road, Minzu Road, and Dachang Road, vehicles can be diverted in advance.

The work area will implement "prohibiting the passage of large trucks over 15 tons during peak hours" and "prohibiting the passage of combined vehicles and gravel vehicles at all times".

The Dashun section of Kaohsiung’s second-stage light rail is currently under construction, and there is only one left-turn lane in the fast lane that has not been altered to affect traffic, and straight-going cars are also forced to occupy the left-turn lane in violation of regulations.
