【看英文中國郵報學英文】台九線新南迴公路最南段預計於12月20日通車。新南迴公路拓寬工程分為三段,其中最南端的台東達仁鄉安朔至屏東縣獅子鄉草埔路段全長11公里,沿途穿越高山峻嶺,高架道路越過澗溪壑谷,以及長達4.6公里的草埔隧道,被譽為全台灣最美公路。

The last section of the South-Link Highway, which connects Pingtung and Taitung, will open on Dec. 20, according to the Directorate General of Highway. The aforesaid section, which links Anshuo, Daren Township in Taitung to Caopu village and Shihzih Township in Pingtung, is known for its scenic landscapes, endless mountains, deep valleys and a 4.6-km-long tunnel along the way.

預計最南段開通後,台東到屏東行車時間將縮短30分鐘。然而,徒步、機車環島的民眾必須注意,草埔隧道基於安全,禁行機車(含重機)、自行車與徒步行人。上述用路人必須使用舊省道往來臺東與屏東。

The travel time between Pintung to Taitung will be reduced by 30 minutes after the construction of the southernmost section of the Provincial Highway 9 is open to the public. Yet, it should be noted that those who travel on foot, by bike or scooter (including motorcycles) are not allowed to enter the Caopu tunnel for safety reasons; instead, they should travel between Pingtung and Taitung through the old Provincial Highway.
