岐阜・恵那のリニア工事、完成は29年度に JR東海が目標後ろ倒し


 On the 18th, JR Tokai announced that the target completion date for the construction of tunnels and other facilities for the planned Chuo Shinkansen maglev line in Ena City, Gifu Prefecture, would be changed from 2027 to sometime between 2027 and 2029. The reason for the change is said to be a review of the construction period due to the abandonment of the plan to open the line between Shinagawa in Tokyo and Nagoya in 2027.

 According to JR Tokai, the completion date for the construction of a tunnel (the Daini-Oi Tunnel) and bridges (1,840 meters) in Ena City has been revised. Originally, construction was scheduled to begin before the end of the year and be completed in 2027.

 However, the opening of the Shinagawa-Nagoya line has been delayed, and it is no longer necessary to invest funds in construction in Ena City this year in order to meet the 2045 deadline.

 In addition, due to the difficulty of the construction work, the construction period has been extended by 20 months from the original plan to approximately 60 months. As a result, the target completion date for construction is expected to be in fiscal 2029. The company has stated that "it is necessary to proceed with the construction carefully.

Resolution to launch a campaign to "show the opening date of the section of the linear motor train line that has not yet started construction as soon as possible".

A group made up of local governments in the prefecture, etc., held a meeting on the 1st with the aim of opening the entire Chuo Shinkansen line, and adopted a resolution to develop a campaign to urge the national government, JR Tokai, etc., to indicate the opening date for the uncompleted section at an early date.

JR Tokai has changed the opening date for the section of the Chuo Shinkansen between Shinagawa and Nagoya from 2027 to after 2027.
In this context, a meeting of an organization made up of local governments in the prefecture was held in Tsu City on the 1st, with around 170 people in attendance, with the aim of opening the entire line, including the section between Nagoya and Osaka.
At the meeting, a resolution was adopted calling for the government and JR Tokai to work towards the earliest possible opening of the entire line, including the sections that have yet to be built, by setting an early opening date, and to finalize the route and station locations within the prefecture as soon as possible.
At the meeting, a representative of JR Tokai explained the current situation, including the fact that since December last year, JR Tokai has started drilling surveys in the area around the proposed station site in Kameyama City, which has been requested by Mie Prefecture.
After the meeting, the governor said, "I think the position of Shizuoka Prefecture has changed, and the hearts of the prefectures along the linear motor train route have become one in promoting the linear motor train. The linear motor train is essential for the development of the prefecture, so I want to continue to say, 'I want the line to open as soon as possible.
