Please notice the traffic control measures during the Moon Festival Holiday, choose a right time to departure.
Based on the traffic characteristics of the Moon Festival Holiday in recent years, Freeway Bureau considered that tourism is major trip purpose. The traffic volume is up to 1.3~1.4 times of average annual weekday traffic. Southbound traffic is concentrated on September 9th to 10th morning hours, and northbound traffic is concentrated on September 10th to 11th afternoon hours. Therefore, Freeway Bureau recommends that people should take public transportation to replace driving for saving time. If people need to drive on the freeway, it is best to start at the recommended time as follow and avoid rush hour departures :
1. From September 9th to 10th, please departure southbound before 6:00 a.m. or after 12:00 noon.
2. From September 10th to 11th, people living in the southern region please departure northbound before 9:00 a.m., and that living in the central region departure northbound before 12:00 noon.
To ease the massive traffic demand during the Moon Festival Holiday, Freeway Bureau will implement entrance ramp closure, and northbound high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) exclusive use (see Figure.1). Please make sure you have known relevant freeway traffic control measures before you drive.
Freeway Bureau wishes everyone a happy Moon Festival Holiday.
