Pipeline Information Center Monitoring


The Taipei City Government established the “Taipei City Road & Pipeline Information Center” (referred to as “Taipei Road Pipeline Center”) on July 1, 2015. It is the first joint office in the country to integrate the resources of government agencies and pipeline agencies. 43 pipeline units are available 24 hours a day. Stationed throughout the year, monitoring road inspection and maintenance, road construction and emergency response at any time; integrating the city government’s plans and needs to promote various constructions, new housing and livelihood pipelines, etc., and more emphasis on integrating construction sites and reducing repeated excavation.

Taking the safety of citizens and the livable environment as the priority, the center strictly enforces that road construction units need to take pictures on site, transmit real-time images to the center for unified monitoring through the Internet, and provide citizens with mobile phones to download the “Pipeline Construction Image System APP” to check the real-time construction status , the whole people supervise the construction quality and improve the safety of the city. At present, the real-time image return rate of construction is as high as 99.9%.

“Taoyuan City Road & Pipeline Management Information Service Center” (referred to as “Road Management Information Center”) was officially established on January 16, 2017. The Municipal Public Works Bureau has five goals: including project coordination, construction management, and pipeline drawing intelligence. At the same time, speed up the undergroundization of cables, and establish a mechanism to assist in disaster prevention and post-disaster recovery.

Road engineering is closely related to people’s lives. In order to ensure the quality of road construction, in addition to requiring each pipeline agency to carry out construction, it is necessary to set up cameras to record construction images, and send them back to the joint service center for monitoring in real time; the public can also go to the “Maintenance Engineering Office Convenience System” APP In the download area, download the construction image “Road Construction Image System APP”, watch the real-time construction image through the APP, perform the map search case function, inquire about the construction unit, license number and the actual construction situation, so that the construction process can be faithfully presented without any concealment. The effectiveness of national supervision of labor is improving the quality of life of citizens. 


“Kaohsiung City Road Excavation Administration Center” was officially opened at the end of March 2017. The central task is to coordinate and integrate construction through a single window, implement unified excavation and repair, and reduce repeated excavation; strengthen road inspection and repair to improve road quality, improve city appearance, and improve the database of public pipelines. In the event of a road emergency disaster accident, it can be used as a disaster response command center.

In order to maintain the safety and quality of road construction and avoid affecting the lives of citizens, the pipeline unit needs to send personnel to the center during the construction of the road permit. The on-site unit must use the APP to report the construction, and set up a camera to record the whole process and send it back to the center for real-time monitoring to strengthen operation supervision. and improve construction efficiency. Citizens can use the “Kaohsiung Road Construction Video System” APP in the center to instantly understand the video images of the construction site around their homes, allowing the public to check the progress of road excavation and making government administration more convenient for the people.

Deputy Mayor of Kaohsiung City Lin Qinrong inspected the road excavation management center on February 1, 2021. On-site construction and three-party real-time transmission of video images to control the quality

Lin Qinrong inspected the Kaohsiung City Road Excavation Management Center, grasped the current road excavation status through the cloud real-time camera host, and asked the engineering unit to reduce individual road excavation and increase the joint excavation and integration of construction projects. At the scene, the “Kaohsiung City Road Construction Video” app can be used to monitor the road excavation construction in real time. He said that Kaohsiung City has a “three-way connection” for real-time transmission, including material supply, road excavation and on-site supervision, and the information is disclosed and documented.

Road leveling has become an indicator of public satisfaction with governance, and pipeline units cooperate to create a friendly and safe environment for road use. Making good use of technology enables us to do things better with less energy, which is what Mayor Chen Qimai means to promote Kaohsiung to become a smart city.

The road excavation management center of the Public Works Bureau integrates the joint excavation of pipeline units and private construction projects through the construction of information and technology systems, and directly manages it from the application for construction license. In addition to controlling the excavation process, it also uses three-dimensional underground pipeline maps Capital construction, overall control of the location of underground pipelines, to reduce construction disasters, the city becomes smarter, and citizens can be safer. The Road Excavation Management Center of the Public Works Bureau, which is responsible for the city’s pipeline safety, sincerely thanks them for their hard work in ensuring the safety of citizens and friends.

The “iRoad New Taipei City Smart Road Management Center” established by the New Taipei City Public Works Bureau was inaugurated and operated under the chairmanship of Mayor Hou Youyi on July 16, 2020. He cooperated with many pipeline units such as water, Taipower, Chunghwa Telecom, gas, and cable TV It is the city government’s policy to send staff to the Smart Road Management Center to express their satisfaction and encourage everyone to jointly improve the quality of environmental and industrial safety.

Hou Youyi said that New Taipei City has a vast territory. How to use technology to achieve smart city, efficient governance, and improve the well-being of citizens has always been the goal of the city government. The Smart Road Management Center uses 3D pipeline images, combined with the actual road conditions, to immediately grasp the status of the underground pipelines in the construction section, which can strengthen the management of road construction sites, greatly reduce the probability of accidental digging and damage to people’s livelihood pipelines during construction, and improve road management in New Taipei City. Maintenance efficiency.
