Xiangshan Station (Taipei Metro)
|Address||Xinyi Rd., Sec. 5|
|Line(s)||Xinyi Line (R5)
|Operator(s)||Taipei Rapid Transit System|
The station is a two-level, underground station with an island platform. It is located beneath Xinyi Rd., Sec. 5 east of Songren Rd. and near the north end of Zhongqiang Park and the Xinyi Expressway. It is the planned eastern terminus of the Xinyi Line when it initially opens for service. The Xinyi Eastern Extension, when completed, will extend eastward from this station.
- July 2005: Construction on the station began.
The station will be 220 m (720 ft) long and 22 m (72 ft) wide. Excavation depth will be at 22 m (72 ft). It will have three entrances, two elevators for the disabled, and two vent shafts.
Due to space limitations caused by the Xinyi Expressway, a vehicle overpass, and Taiwan Power Company culverts, the station was constructed using the pipe jacking method instead of the usual cut-and-cover method.
The design theme for the station is "Song of tree frogs - presentation of geographical features dialoguing with nature". Due to the station's proximity to Elephant Mountain Civil Forest Park, it is close to the protected habitat of Taipei tree frogs. Artwork will present natural features and various poses of tree frogs.
