Kaohsiung residents and environmentalists yesterday protested a proposed freeway project ahead of its environmental review, saying the freeway would be situated on an active fault line and demanding that the review be halted until a complete geological survey has been completed.
Protesters gathered in front of the Environmental Protection Administration building in Taipei to oppose the Freeway No. 7 project, a 23km section connecting the city’s Siaogang (小港), Daliao (大寮) and Renwu (仁武) districts, designed to divert rising traffic volume surrounding the Port of Kaohsiung.
