A Team of Professionals With Heavy Responsibilities

     Established on July 1, 1983, the Taipei Railway Underground Project Office (TRUPO) was the predecessor of the Railway Reconstruction Bureau (RRB), Ministry of Transportation and Communications. As Taiwan’s first agency specializing in railway engineering, the TRUPO was charged with the planning and implementation of the underground rail tracks in Taipei.

     On July 1, 1999, the TRUPO was combined with the East Railway Improvement Engineering Bureau of the former Taiwan Provincial Transportation Administration as a result of the streamlining of the Taiwan Provincial Government. Named the Eastern Region Engineering Office, the new entity was responsible for implementing railway improvement projects in eastern Taiwan. After its Executive Yuan-approved name change to the RRB on January 1, 2002, it was officially called upon to plan, design and undertake railway reconstruction nationwide.


     On February 5, 2007, a Southern Region Engineering Office was set up to undertake projects in Kaohsiung and Pingtung. It was followed by the establishment, on July 1, 2009, of the Central Region Engineering Office that was given the responsibility of implementing projects in Taichung, Changhua, Chiayi and Tainan.

     The RRB is given the duty of constructing and improving railways in metropolitan areas throughout Taiwan, including the five cities that are placed under the direct jurisdiction of the Executive Yuan (Cabinet). After a given railway engineering project is completed, operation of related facilities is then turned over to the Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA).

     As part of a Executive Yuan initiative to streamline government structure, the RRB and the MOTC’s Bureau of High Speed Rail are due to be merged into a new entity. In addition to railway reconstruction and improvement, the prospective agency is also to be entrusted with the supervision and management of all railways and railway-related industries. To attain a better-rounded railway structure, it will also undertake R&D, integrate technologies and map out pertinent regulations.
