Station overview[edit]

Taipei Bridge Station platform

This six-level, underground station has two, stacked side platforms.[3] It is located beneath Chongxin Rd., Sec. 1 between Wenhua North and South Rd. and Zhongyang North and South Rd. It was originally scheduled to open in March 2012 along with most of the Xinzhuang Line,[4] but opened for service earlier on January 5, 2012.[2]

History[edit]

  • August 1889: The Taiwan Railway Business Office constructed Tamsui River Station.
  • August 25, 1901: With the alignment of the Western Line changed to go through Shulin instead, the line no longer passed by the station.
  • January 5, 2012: The metro station opened for service, along with the New Taipei segment of the Xinzhuang Line.

Construction[edit]

Excavation depth for this station was 33 m (108 ft). It is 179.2 m (588 ft) in length and 14.775 m (48.47 ft) meters wide.[5] The station has one entrance, one accessibility elevator, and two vent shafts.[3] Two emergency exits are integrated with a joint development building. Public art is featured on the walls of the main entrance.

Design[edit]

The station is based on a theme of "Sunset-bathed Iron Bridge" (referring to Taipei Bridge), with images of the Tamsui River, Guanyin Mountain, and a "bazaar culture".[6]
