The Taipei Metro Taipei Bridge Station is a station on the Xinzhuang Line located in Sanchong District, New Taipei, Taiwan, two blocks from the approach to Taipei Bridge for which the station is named.[2] The station opened for service on January 5, 2012.[3]

Station overview[edit]

This six-level, underground station has two, stacked side platforms.[4] 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,[5] but opened for service earlier on January 5, 2012.[3]


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.[6] The station has one entrance, one accessibility elevator, and two vent shafts.[4] Two emergency exits are integrated with a joint development building. Public art is featured on the walls of the main entrance.


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".[7]
