Xinsheng South Road

Xinsheng Road (Chinese: 新生路; also called 8th Avenue or Hsinsheng Road) is a major arterial in Taipei, Taiwan, connecting the Da'an District in the south with the Zhongshan and the Shilin districts in the north. The roads were built along both sides of the Horikawa River in Japanese rule period, which was called Horikawa-dōri (Horikawa Avenue). Xinsheng Road is mainly a surface arterial, with the exception of the section between Zhongxiao Road and Zhongshan Road, where there is a four-lane expressway running above the surface arterial, which eventually carries the road over the Keelung River north of Minzu Road and onto Zhongshan Road on the other side. Xinsheng literally means "New Life" and the road is named after the New Life Movement which was established by Chiang Kai-shek and Soong Mei-ling.
