On September 4, 2012, the design proposal for five pedestrian bridges included in the first section of the Litchi Bay Phase III Comprehensive Improvement Project was unveiled. The bridges will be built based on the shapes of the changing phases of the moon. Now the city is soliciting the names for these pedestrian bridges from the public.

It is learned that the first section of the Litchi Bay Phase III Comprehensive Improvement Project is 1.55 kilometers long. Currently, all parts of the section are under construction, and it is anticipated to complete before December 31, 2012.

It is understood that after the first section of the Phase III project uncovered and restored the original streams, five pedestrian bridges will be built. Two bridges will be built over Changhua Stream and three will be built over Dadi Stream.

The five bridges are designed as arch bridges. Inspired by the changing phases of the moon from crescent to full moon, the bridges display progressive changes between a slightly arched shape to a fully arched shape. They are designed with the considerations of the load-bearing factors and sightseeing boats passing under the bridges. 2.5 meters above the water surface, these bridges allow dragon boats paddling under them.

Citizens may send their bridge names to e-mail along with their contact information.
