Heavy traffic expected on first day of Moon Festival

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The traffic on freeways is likely to be heavy during the Moon Festival vacation, which falls this year from Sept. 6 to 8, the National Freeway Bureau (高公局) said recently.

From 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sept. 6 and 7, southbound cars using Freeway No. 5 (Beiyi Freeway, 北宜高) are required to carry at least three people each. The same requirement has also been made of northbound cars traveling from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sept. 7 and 8.

The bureau said that people should take advantage of the period that is free of charge, which is from 11 p.m. on Sept. 5 to 6 a.m. on Sept. 6, use National Highway No. 1 for trips to Taichung, take National Highway No. 3 for long trips, or choose alternative routes for short trips, since the traffic volume on freeways will increase on the last day of the vacation.

The traffic on Freeway No. 5 is always heavy on holidays, according to the bureau, which has designated a specific lane for buses. People taking public transport will save more time than those who drive, the bureau added.
