The New SkyRider, a system of elevated bike paths, was proposed by the New Taipei City government in 2015 in response to the global trend towards low-carbon lifestyles. This major urban development plan will create a green network of bike paths in the heart of New Taipei City, linking the densely populated districts of Xinzhuang and Banqiao on the north and south sides of Dahan Creek, and expand outward to connect other areas. By promoting the development of low-carbon transport systems and industries, this project seeks to encourage people to commute by bicycle and provide a high efficient and convenient transportation choice. The route of New SkyRider starts from the intersection of Section 3, Zhonghuan Road and Section 4, New Taipei Boulevard in Xinzhuang District in the north, extends south along the 60-meter wide parkway of Section 3, Zhonghuan Road (Provincial Highway 65), and spans Dahan Creek to connect with existing riverside bike paths in Banqiao District.

The New Taipei City government cordially invites outstanding Taiwanese and international design teams to creatively combine urban design, smart and low-carbon systems, and urban ecology, and structure aesthetic and submit their innovative and visionary design proposals for the New SkyRider project. The design of the clean, safe, and convenient transport network should integrate the parkway, including the 10 meter-width pedestrian open space beneath the elevated New SkyRider, public area, and space beneath the elevated highway. New Taipei City looks forward to a revolutionary design for its newest landmark and new vision for sustainable and urban living.
