Nangang Station

POI: 25.052222, 121.606389
Nangang Station (Chinese: 南港車站; pinyin: Nángǎng Chēzhàn) (formerly transliterated as Nankang Station until 2003) is a major railway station located in Nangang, Taipei, Taiwan, parallel to Zhongxiao East Road. The station serves several modes of public transportation, including the bus system, Taiwan Railway Administration, and Taipei Metro (Nangang Line). The station is also the terminus of the Taiwan High Speed Rail as of July 2016. The current underground Nangang Line station was the last one in the Taipei Metro that was built without platform screen doors.
History
Nangang Station was originally built by the Japanese during Japanese rule of Taiwan in 1899 to support local industries and the growing population. Since then, the station has been upgraded three times to support tremendous growth: in 1905, in 1966 (due to the KMT moving the ROC government to Taiwan), and in 1986-1987 (to accommodate increased passenger traffic and new cargo traffic).
Expansion
As with most urban train stations in Taipei, Nangang Station is currently being converted from a surface station to an underground station as part of the TRA's Taipei Railway Underground Project, an effort to move existing surface railways from Songshan Station to east of Nangang Station underground to accommodate growing traffic and economic development in Nankang Software Park. Existing TRA platforms were successfully moved underground on September 21, 2008. The 7.6-km tunnel project cost NT$76.5 billion. The high-speed rail extension to the station will open for service by mid-2016. The new station will be similar to the new Banqiao Station in New Taipei City, which was reconstructed to accommodate underground platforms and mixed-use development on the existing station site. The station will include two underground levels to accommodate expanded TRA platforms, new THSR platforms, and new MRT platforms for the Nangang Line which was opened on December 25, 2008. On January 3, 2010, Exits 3 and 4 for metro station were closed for construction of a passageway with the TRA station. The entire project was completed in February 2011. Platform screen doors were installed on the Nangang Line platforms in August 2015.
Public art
The design of the Taipei Metro portion of the station centers around a "Nostalgia and Technology" theme with aqua green selected to signify an image of a fish pond. Paintings by artist Jimmy Liao are displayed around the station including on the platform walls. Many areas have sandblasted glass installed. On the platform, a piece titled "Rapid Transit Platform, the Transport Dock" displays images on benches to evoke memories of former industries in Nangang.
