The initial inspection of the Taichung MRT green line was conducted for the drill simulating an event when the train is on fire and there is failure when waiting for rescue support. The drill result was recognized by the inspection commissioners due to the rapid and correct response abilities. For eight items that need to be improved, with the cooperation between the Department of Rapid Transit Systems of the Taipei City Government and the Department of Rapid Transit Systems of the Taichung City Government, a re-inspection was completed within ten days. Today, the application for a review inspection by the Ministry of Transportation and Communications was filed to closely coordinate with the Central Government for speeding up administrative operations for timely operations of the Green Line. The Director General of the Transportation Bureau, Yeh Chao-Fu, pointed out that the official operation is one of the great news of Taichung City this year.
