Walkway connecting buildings

There is a second level walkway connecting many buildings in the district around the Taipei City Hall. It takes the pedestrians off the street level and brings them to many large stores and offices.

The walkway is broad and can take many people. It is almost like walking on the street, but without cars. As the climate is cool during winter in Taipei, it is quite pleasant to walk along the walkways.

Some people said that it is expensive to build the elevated workway. In my view, it is relative. I believe that the cost is only a small fraction of the money that is spent to build the expensive buildings.

I hope, one day, that many cities and towns will have elevated walkways like this. It encourages people to walk a long distance to the train station or bus terminal.
