Starting November 17, MRT passengers can take advantage of the set of escalators for convenient access for entry and exit.

Other MRT station entrances which have reopened with separate escalators for entry and exit include Exit 3 of MRT Zhongxiao Dunhua Station; Exit 3 of Zhongxiao Fuxing Station; Exit 4 of Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station, and Exit 2 of MRT Jiangzicui Station).

As a result, DORTS have devised plans to upgrade MRT station infrastructure to comply with this directive, ensuring that there is at least one MRT entrance on opposite sides of the station outfitted with two escalators or an elevator.
The agency expects to add 62 escalators and 1 elevator covering 4 train platforms and 23 entrances across 16 MRT stations by the end of 2022.
