Miaoli County, Taiwan –


Jhunan Ciding Twin Tunnels (Ciding No.1 & No.2 Tunnel) was officially announced and registered as the historical buildings in Miaoli County in 2005. Jhunan Ciding Twin Tunnels are the only two connected double-track railway tunnels. The tunnels are built with half red brick and half cement brick. Not only the structures are rare, but the twin tunnels are still well-preserved. The twin tunnels certainly are part of the most important tourist attractions in Ciding region.

Ciding Twin Tunnels were completed in 1928, which were specifically built for the completion of the new railway from Xiangshan to Jhunan. In 1975, due to the Taiwan Railway Administration’s promotion of railway electrification projects, the twin tunnels were suffered the fate of abandonment, after the adverse conditions and the traffic safety had been taken into consideration. After the twin tunnels have been abandoned for more than 20 years, Jhunan Township Office cleaned out the surrounding environment, re-surfaced the railway track and transformed the twin tunnels into Ciding Tunnel Cultural Park. On the north side of Ciding Station, there is an observation deck called “LaoQuGuanHai”, which is linked up with those small trails in the wood.

If you have a chance coming to Ciding, besides the Twin Tunnels and LaoQuGuanHai, you can also pay a visit to Southern 18 Peaks Mountain Scenic Area, Jianbi Mountain, Western Coastal Bikeway, Animal Medicine Research Institute, etc. If tourists require the tour guide service, please welcome to contact Ciding Village Rural Development Association.

【古蹟景點】歷史建物子母隧道─竹南崎頂深度旅遊

魏攸芳/苗栗縣

  2005年被公告登錄為苗栗縣歷史建築的竹南崎頂子母隧道(崎頂一、二號隧道),是苗栗縣唯一兩座相連的雙軌鐵路隧道,加上隧道內上半部採紅磚襯砌,下半部為水泥磚砌築,不僅構造少見,至今保存完整,並為當地苗栗縣竹南鎮崎頂里農村發展協會所認養維護,結合當地其他特色,成為推動崎頂地區的觀光休閒活動的重要景點。

  崎頂子母隧道建於1928年,因香山到竹南的鐵路新線完工而開鑿一號、二號隧道,並在二號隧道南端設崎頂信號場(號誌站),負責交通列車管制。1975年因台鐵推動鐵路電氣化工程,因條件不利且基於行車安全考量,該段鐵道再度西移,崎頂一、二號隧道於是遭到廢棄命運,為將近五十年的運作歷史正式劃下休止符。荒廢20多年的隧道,經竹南鎮公所爭取經費,整理周邊環境、重鋪鐵軌、候車亭意象,隧道間涵洞橋加蓋造型木橋,打造成崎頂隧道文化公園;而崎頂火車站北側的「老衢觀海」觀景平台,與隧道之間以林間小徑串連成一懷舊步道,讓崎頂成為具鐵路主題的觀光旅遊景點。

  想到崎頂來遊玩,除了子母隧道、老衢觀海,還有南十八尖山風景區、尖筆山落日餘暉、西濱環海自行車道、動物用藥品檢定分所小神社、義軍抗暴紀念碑等多處景區可規劃一~二日旅遊行程。(圖/苗栗縣竹南鎮崎頂里農村發展協會提供)
