[Reporter Huang Liangjie/Kaohsiung Report] Zhandong Road and Zhanxi Road on both sides of Kaohsiung Railway Station divert northbound and southbound one-way vehicles. The city government decided to strengthen the lane recognition and traffic guidance of Zhandong Road compared with the previous colored pavement pattern of Zhanxi Road. To maintain traffic order at intersections, construction will be closed at night on 8th and 9th and 15th and 16th, Zhandong Road (northbound) will be mainly blue, Zhanxi Road (southbound) will be paved in red, and the stop line and Waiting area for slow trains.
According to the Transportation Bureau, the city government plans to carry out the lane color paving project from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. on the two weekends of April 8, 9, 15, and 16. Two intersections of Bo'ai/Jiuru/Zhandong Road are open to traffic. During the construction period, the northbound Zhongshan Road (Bade Road-Jianguo section), the northbound Zhandong Road, and the east-west traffic of Jianguo Road and Jiuru Road will be affected.
However, the southbound lane of Zhanxi Road and the pick-up area will not be affected by the road closure and will remain open. Passers-by are urged to avoid the construction section and divert in advance.

The southern section of the station (including Zhongshan/Jianguo/Zhandong intersection) will be closed for construction from 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 the next day on April 8 and 9. During the construction period, the northbound Zhongshan Road (Bade Road-Jianguo section), the northbound Zhandong Road, and Jianguo will be affected. The road runs east-west; in consideration of the demand for pick-up and drop-off at Kaohsiung Station, a temporary pick-up area will be planned on the east side of the intersection of Jianguo Road and Nanhua Road to provide pick-up and drop-off at the station.
The construction of the northern section of Zhandong Road will be carried out on the weekend every other week. The northern section of the station (including Boai/Jiulu/Zhandong intersection) will be closed for construction from 11:00 p.m. on April 15th and 16th to 7:00 the next day. During the construction of the northern section, in order to avoid the influx of passing traffic into Zhandong Road, the upstream intersection of Zhongshan Road in the north direction (Qixian Road, Bade Road, and Jianguo Intersection) will first guide the traffic to use Fuxing Road and Zizi Road to go north.
Only pick-up vehicles are allowed to enter Zhandong Road and exit from Anning Street.
The police also reminded that during the construction of the south and north sections of Zhandong Road, vehicles that originally used Zhongshan Road to go north should be diverted to alternate north-south roads such as Zhonghua, Minzu, Liberty Revival, and Zili in advance.
Vehicles traveling east-west on Jianguo Road and Jiuru Road, please divert to Zhongzheng Road, Qixian Road, Shiquan Road and other road sections, and follow the direction of the on-site police officers.
