What are the guidelines DORTS has implemented when constructing the MRT? (Planning)
The Taipei MRT is a construction project of national significance. The basic criterion of each line's design is how to benefit the public. According to Article 19 of the Mass Rapid Transit Act, "When the building of the MRT leaves authorities no other choice, authorities are to choose the land acquisition method that will bring about the least loss for the owner, occupant, or user, and are to pay fair compensation when construction (including under/above ground and elevated structures) must cross public or private land." Based on these requirements, using less private land and more public roads, keeping construction as far away from residents as possible and lowering the depth of the tunnels are the guidelines DORTS has implemented when constructing the MRT.
