Overview of Local Traffic
Sinshih District is extremely accessible. In addition to the north-south line of the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA), the Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR) also passes through this district (the two rail lines would intersect at the south side of Sinshih District train station, but no THSR station has been built within the District), road traffic include Freeway No. 1, Freeway No. 3, and Freeway No. 8. Provincial highways include Provincial Highway 1, and Provincial Highway 19A. All of these roads provide convenient routes for both northbound and southbound travelers.
On average, it takes less than 1 hour to travel from Sinshih District to any other district in Tainan City, making the Sinshih the perfect traffic hub in Greater Tainan. Sinshih District is also a popular contender for the locale of the new city government building.
Since Sinshih Train Station is located at the southern edge and faces the downtown area, the third Overall Review of Sinshih Urbanization Plans made special plans to develop the land to the north of the train station. A northern exit has also been planned in order to reverse the developmental axis near the train station. The aim is to provide convenient traveling options while safeguarding the safety of commuters living in the downtown areas of Sinshih area.
