That's the word, exactly. It's like being in Blade Runner.
The other strange thing about that freeway (no.3) is that from Taipei, there is no sign even mentioning Kaohsiung until you see one saying 'Kaohsiung exit 1000m'. It's the same for every major city off that freeway - you would hardly know they exist from the signs for them.
And in case anyone sees a sign saying 'Kanting Next Exit' right near the end of the freeway and wonders if it's a mis-spelling of Kending, and is thinking 'shit, is this where I have to get off if I want go to Kending?', it's not.
