Meanwhile, traffic has resumed at the Central Cross-Island Highway. A section of the road at the 131.2 kilometer mark had been blocked after a landslide yesterday morning brought enormous rocks and cut off traffic. But the public is still advised to take alternative routes, at least until this spate of rain stops.

Here is the Provincial Highway No. 8, Central Cross-island Highway, the point at Taroko entrance. A bulletin posted by Directorate General of Highways says 131.2 kilometer point had a landslide.

Due to days of extremely heavy rain, Provincial Highway No.8's Tzu-en Section, the point at 131K+200, had a landslide at 7 am. The traffic is terminated. There are so many rocks and stones, and they are big. We, therefore, dispatched a crusher for the maintenance.

A fallen gigantic rock is larger than an excavator, more rocks keep on falling from the slope. A single lane traffic has already resumed by the evening of June 18.

==CHANG PO-YU Loshao Section Chief, DGH, MOTC==
Due to rain and mist in the mountain area, rain continues and mist diffuses, those have made our work more difficult. We anticipate resuming single-lane traffic by 5 pm today (June 18).

Maintenance workers urge people not to enter this road section, because when rain continues, water saturation in soils may reach to limits, more falling rocks and landslide may occur.

受到連日下雨影響,台八線中橫公路131.2公里處慈恩路段,今天早上發生了落石坍方情況,上百噸巨大的石頭目前是擋住整條道路,公務段派出怪手搶修中,預計最快也要到今天傍晚才會通車。

來到台八線中橫公路東側的太魯閣口,公路總局的告示牌已經通知民眾131.2公里處發生坍方。

台8線連日豪雨
今天上午七點在慈恩的路段
也就是131k加200的地方
發生落石坍方
目前交通是阻斷的
由於現場石頭非常多 而且巨大
那我們是調派了破碎機進行碎擊

這次落下的巨石比一台怪手還要大,且山坡上還有土石在繼續滑落,需清理乾淨恐怕要到明天,18日傍晚已經恢復單線通車。

==ns公路總局洛韶工務段段長 張博宇==
因為山上目前的雨霧
還是持續下雨 雨霧瀰矇
那搶修的工做比較困難
那預計要到今天下午的五點
才可以恢復單線通車

此外洛韶工務段也呼籲,因雨勢不斷,山區含水量大,陸續都有零星落石發生,提醒民眾這段時間盡量避免進入,以免發生危險。
