Paying tribute to the highway spidermen

文字-A A +A

Taitung is the last pure land of Formosa, the blessed land of milk and honey. The Southern Cross-Island Provincial Highway that traverses the Central Mountain Range is undoubtedly the most magnificent mountain road in Taiwan. The narrow mountain pass between Taitung and Kaohsiung used to be a popular tourist spot to watch the sunrise and sea of clouds at New Year.

Sadly, however, typhoon Morakot changed the color of mountain rivers and severely affected the stretch of road from Xiangyang to Meishankou, which has now been closed for nine years. In spite of this, to make a living, help their families, and provide access to the area, road workers continue to struggle on in perilous conditions and foul weather. Drenched in sweat and risking their lives dangling high up on the vertical cliffs, they are indeed the unknown heroes of the Southern Cross-Island Provincial Highway.

 

以下為中文對照

台東,是福爾摩沙最後的淨土,流奶與蜜的福地,而穿越中央山脈的南橫公路,是台灣最美的高山公路,其中位於台東高雄交界的埡口,曾是跨年賞日出和雲海的熱門景點之一。

但是莫拉克一來,南橫山河變色,向陽到梅山口受災嚴重,一封閉就長達九年,目前還在努力復健中。其中,管制區中的修路工人,冒著生命危險在惡劣的氣候下與天搏鬥,為了自己為了家人為了廣大的用路人,他們在垂直峭壁上的博命演出,讓人為他們捏了把冷汗,他們是南橫路上,真正的無名英雄。
