Description:
Highways in the Republic of China (Taiwan) are classified into four types:

  1. National highways: 1 - 10 (Freeway)
  2. Provincial highways: 1 - 39, 61 - 88 (Expressway)
  3. County routes: 101 - 205
  4. Township routes

As a general rule, the odd numbers represent north-south highways and even numbers represent east-west. The numbers increase moving west to east and north to south.
