Changing the Maglev route is 'unthinkable'

Post by Eurorapid »

JR東海社長「リニア工事のルート変更難しい」 改めて否定的見解示す【大井川リニア】

The following is a summary of the main points made by JR Tokai President Shin Kaneko at his regular press conference held on June 28.

 -In the public debate for the prefectural gubernatorial election (to be held on June 3 and 20), there was a comment that referred to changing the route of the Central Linear Railway and suspending its construction. Is there any difference in JR Tokai's view?

We have always said that changing the route would be 'very difficult and unthinkable,' and that has not changed.

 -Will the price of the Tokaido Shinkansen be reduced after the opening of the linear railway?

 We will have to decide on the fare for the linear line in consideration of the economy, business conditions, and convenience when the linear line opens, but we have no plans to raise or lower the fare for the Tokaido Shinkansen.

JR Tokai president says no change to linear railway route

Post by Miss Maglev »

At a regular press conference on July 21, JR Tokai President Shin Kaneko said that a review of the route of the Linear Central Shinkansen, which is under construction with the aim of opening between Shinagawa, Tokyo and Nagoya, would bring a series of plans back to square one. It is difficult and unthinkable," he said.
 Heita Kawakatsu, who was elected governor of Shizuoka Prefecture last month, has mentioned the possibility of changing the route through the prefecture or calling for a halt to construction. In his first press conference since his election, Mr. Kaneko again denied any change.
