Tokyo Shinagawa Station (Urban development) development

Post by jok »

Plans to transform Shinagawa into a mega metropolitan hub

The transportation network in central Tokyo has been called the best in the world in terms of accuracy, safety and comprehensiveness. MaaS (Mobility-as-a-Service) is a concept to further evolve this advantage. MaaS is a system that combines various means of transportation to provide optimal transportation services to the destination. The government and developers are accelerating their efforts.
One of the most notable concepts is the "Next-generation transportation terminal planned for the west exit of Shinagawa Station. It is a plan to build an artificial ground above National Route 15 at the west exit of Shinagawa Station to build a terminal for next-generation mobility such as automated driving (completion date and other details are yet to be determined). Shinagawa is close to Haneda Airport and is scheduled to become a departure and arrival station for the Linear Central Shinkansen, and if MaaS is introduced, it is expected to further increase its presence as a gateway to Japan and abroad. Next to the station, Takanawa Gateway Station opened last year, and development is scheduled to continue toward the opening of the city. The surrounding area is expected to grow.
