Hsuehshan Tunnel to close for military exercises

As a venue of part of the annual Han Kuang military exercises, both ways of the section of the National Highway 5 from Shiding to Toucheng, including the Hsuehshan Tunnel, will be closed from midnight to 6 a.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Taiwan Area National Freeway Bureau (TANFB) announced several days ago that the section of the National Highway 5 will be closed during the above-mentioned periods of time due to a Hsuehshan Tunnel accident prevention and rescue drill as well as the Han Kuang military exercises. National Highway 5 bus operator Kamalan Bus Inc. has announced the suspension of buses after 11 p.m. on Monday and between midnight and 6 a.m. on both Tuesday and Wednesday, adding that those who had purchased tickets for the suspended buses can change the date or get a refund. Capital Bus, another National Highway 5 bus operator, said buses after 11:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday will be suspended until the next morning, urging those who had purchased tickets for the suspended buses to refund, change date or take bus earlier. The TANFB urged road users to cooperate with the closure of the road section during the military exercise periods and pay attention to road information on display signs on the highway.
