Taiwan, Japan Hold Experience Exchange Session on Utility Line Relocation

In the interest to relocate utility lines underground by the time of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, personnel from Japan’s Pacific Consultants Corporation arrived in Taiwan for a two-day visit to tour local facilities and hold experience exchange sessions with local representatives between December 21 and 22.
The company is conducting the project on behalf of National Institute for Land and Infrastructure Management (NILIM) under Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism.
The delegates visited the Taipei City Road and Pipeline Information Center (RPIC), which was inaugurated on July 1, 2015. They hope to learn more about Taipei’s approaches toward relocation of cable and utility pipelines while meeting objectives in areas such as disaster prevention and safety.
To allow the guests from Japan to better understand the City’s approach towards the management issues, regulations, and construction techniques related to power and communication cables, the agency invited representatives from Taipower and Chunghwa Telecom to report at the meeting.
RPIC also briefed the delegates on construction plan design and implementation conducted by the center, as well as the distribution of construction costs, management, and deployment of a shared tunnel for these cables.
