Plate Junction – The Bridge of Love

Follow the old railway, the Yu-Fu Bike Trail leads to the junction of the plates on the old railway bridges. In 2017, Yuli Township Office organized a Valentine’s Day event here and made it a romantic ”Bridge of Love” .Taiwan is located at the intersection of the ”Eurasian” and ”Philippine Sea” plates. About 6million years ago, ”the ancient island of Taiwan” was born from crustal plate activity. The only bridge in Asia, the world’s second (the other is in lceland) that moves due to plate activity, rises by about 2 cm each year. In the past, the piers had to be sawn short every few years to keep the deck flat.
