Welcome to Taipei!
The China Road Federation (CRF) of the Republic of China (Taiwan) is pleased to host the 110th REAAA Council Meeting, to be held in Taipei from 9th-13th April 2019. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the 7th Business Forum (with the theme of “Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Roads with Future Engineer Leadership”), the 15th Young Engineers and Professionals (YEP) Meeting and the REAAA Technical Committee meeting.
The China Road Federation is a professional organization with an international orientation. It is a non-profit NGO. Its origins can be traced back to 1960, when the Taiwan transportation community commenced the planning and organization of a national organization affiliated to the IRF. The CRF was formally established on 20th March 1961, and it became a member of REAAA in 1973. From the very beginning, the organization was committed to facilitating and enhancing the quality and safety of the nation’s roadways through construction and maintenance projects, as well as management of the roadway transportation network – both for the sake of the sustainable development of the nation’s roadways and as a first step becoming part of the international roads community.
Roads and highways form the circulatory system of economic development. For more than 50 years, the CRF has taken a leading role in the sharing and exchange of the latest domestic and foreign engineering knowledge and experience, and in cultivating many leading professionals in related fields who then went on to involve themselves in road construction and transportation projects. A comprehensive island-wide road network and a green and safe intelligent transportation system were thus gradually formed. The CRF has not only helped to elevate the nation’s transportation infrastructure and software to a world-class level, but also it has joined advanced industrial nations in moving toward energy savings, carbon-emissions reduction, ecological preservation and the adoption of techniques and technologies on the international cutting edge. While promoting economic development, the CRF is also doing its part for the environment.
In addition, because the CRF is active in international road and highway organizations, it has – among institutions connected to roadways and transportation in Taiwan – become an important platform for expanding into international markets. It is thus playing a key role as a mover and shaker. What is more, the contributions that the CRF has made in elevating the quality of the nation’s roads have been recognized and affirmed by the international community. This includes the Hsuehshan (Snow Mountain) Tunnel, the 5th longest road tunnel in the world when constructed in 2006: it stretches 13 km from Taipei to Ilan. The Fushing North Road under Song Shan Airport in Taipei, which opened in 2005, was the first tunnel constructed in the world that was directly under the take-off and landing apron. More recently, the Ministry of Transportation and Communication’s Taiwan Area National Freeway Bureau’s “Program for Transition to Electronic Distance-based Toll Collection on Taiwan’s Freeways” was selected by the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association (IBTTA) for its 2015 Toll Excellence Award in the category of “Customer Service & Marketing Outreach.” The multilane free-flow Taiwan electronic toll system subsequently won multiple international awards in 2017. Finally, the National Freeway No. 1 Widening Project from Wugu to Yangmei won the IRF 2015 Global Road Achievement Award (GRAA) for design.
