For some 40 years, Kaohsiung’s ShihCyuan First Road (yes, we hate the spelling, too) came to an abrupt end at MinZu Rd.

A market area that sprang up long ago limited the roadway thereafter to a tiny alley along a sewer water canal.

Now, with the demolition of the old market, 十全一路 connects to 覺民路 directly, adding an important extension to this major east-west artery for traffic.

Mayor Chen opened the road on July 31, 2017, saying it marked a big change for the city and that she hoped other urban development projects can also bring a better quality of life to city residents
