Travelling down to the Taichung area during CNY, I discovered by chance that the Freeway No. 3 (a.k.a. Second Freeway) was opened all the way down to Taichung. Originally I was planning to take the coastal highway from where the Freeway usually stopped, but it just continued on and on.
The standard of the road was great and the traffic was light, so the chances to get a speeding ticket was very high.
It seems like this is an official secret, because no one me or my wife have been talking to are aware of this, even some friends living just a few kilometers from the Freeway 3-4 intersection. We even asked somone about a sign to “Freeway 3”, but the reply was something like: “Naah, it is only a few kilomers”.
So, I was thinking of keeping this secret (and the Freeway) for myself, but as a service to the Segue community, I hereby give you a fast alternative route to Taichung.
