Railway Construction

JRTT is constructing various types of railways. As high speed rail, JRTT is currently constructing three new Shinkansen lines: the Hokkaido Shinkansen between Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto and Sapporo, the Hokuriku Shinkansen between Kanazawa and Tsuruga, and the Kyushu Shinkansen between Takeo-Onsen and Nagasaki.
As urban rail, we are constructing the Eastern Kanagawa Line (Sotetsu-Tokyu through Line) as a project to enhance the convenience of urban railways. Moreover, we are constructing Maglev high speed line (Chuo Shinkansen).

Outline of Railway Construction

JRTT exerts total technical capability to construct high standard raiways.

Our Mission for Railway Construction

JRTT contribute to build Transportation Network.

Project Research

JRTT conducts a wide range of surveys including general research in the conceptual stage and detailed research in the implemention stage: route selection, timetabling, railway facility planning, demand forecasting, and analyses of profitability and socioeconomic effects, etc.

Technological Development

JRTT has provided state-of-the art technologies for design and construction of infrastructure including tunnel and bridge we acqired through abundant experiences of railway construction in Japan.

Railway Contsructed by JRTT

Over the 50-plus years since the establishment of the Japan Railway Construction Public Corporation (JRCC) - the predecessor to JRTT - in 1964, we have constructed a total length of over 3,640 km on over 120 lines.
All over that period,we have receive many awards from domestic and international organizations alike.

Awards

JRTT has received many awards from domestic and foreign organizations alike for the technology we have used in railway development project and railway construction to date.

Outline of Railway Construction

JRTT is performing construction on the Hokkaido Shinkansen between Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto and Sapporo, the Hokuriku Shinkansen between Kanazawa and Tsuruga, and the Kyushu Shinkansen between Takeo-Onsen and Nagasaki.

We are performing construction on the Eastern Kanagawa Lines (through line between Sotetsu Line and Tokyu Line) as a project to enhance the convenience of urban railways, and are also entrusted the construction of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen.

Total Technology for Railway Construction

Railway construction involves various types of jobs:: route survey, negotiation with stakeholders, land acquisition, and design and construction of railway facilities. Furthermore, design and construction of railway. An immense amount of time and money are required. As a trustworthy government agency with comprehensive railway experts, JRTT provide financing for new railway projects and build railway rapidly with considering cost reduction based on our abundant experiences and technical advantages in each phase of railway construction - gained from many years of constructing railways throughout Japan.

Comprehensive Technical Capacity

Developing a railway requires project management to generally manage surveys for route selection, discussions for construction, structure design, land acquisition, construction management, audit and inspection, etc.
JRTT has the abundant experience and project management capabilities.
It has amassed building railways across Japan, to collaborate with regional counterpart, railway operators and others in constructing high-quality infrastructure at affordable costs.
We will contribute to many rail projects around the world, also applying the technologies and know-how it has fostered in Japan.

Shinkansen Lines in Japan (High Speed Railway)

JRTT is constructing the Hokkaido Shinkansen between Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto and Sapporo, the Hokuriku Shinkansen between Kanazawa and Tsuruga, and the Kyushu Shinkansen between Takeo-Onsen and Nagasaki.

Hokkaido Shinkansen

The five Shinkanse lines - the Hokkaido Shinkansen, the Tohoku Shinkansen (north from Morioka), the Hokuriku Shinkansen, and the Kyushu Shinkansen Kagoshima route and the Kyushu Shinkansen Nishi-Kyushu route - are designated as priority lines to be constructed in the Development Program drafted in 1973 based on the Nationwide Shinkansen Railway Development Act. Since the start of construction, the Hokuriku Shinkansen from Takasaki to Karuizawa in 1989, JRTT has completed a total of 929 km of Shinkansen lines to date, including the sections from Shin-Aomori to Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto on the Hokkaido Shinkansen, from Takasaki to Kanazawa on the Hokuriku Shinkansen, from Morioka to Shin-Aomori on the Tohoku Shinkansen, and from Hakata to Kagoshima-Chuo on the Kyushu Shinkansen. After the completion, JRTT lease them to JR companies which operate the lines and provide service to passengers.

A portion of the rail access charge is applied to finance the construction of Shinkansen Lines, and the national government provides financing for 2/3 of the remainder, while local governments cover 1/3.

JRTT retains ownership of the infrastructure after construction, and lends it to each of the JR companies, which operate and manage the lines.

Achievement of Railway Networks

Over the 50-plus years since the establishment of the Japan Railway Construction Public Corporation (JRCC)-the predecessor to JRTT-in 1964, we have constructed a total length of over 3,640 km on over 120 lines, including the Hokkaido Shinkansen between Shin-Aomori and Shin-Hakodate-Hokuto and other Shinkansen lines, the Tsugaru-Kaikyo Line, JR lines, private railways, and subways entrusted to us by local governments and others. Over that period, we have received many awards from domestic and international organizations alike.

Urban Railways

JRTT is constructing the Eastern Kanagawa Rail Links (connecting lines for through service between Sotetsu Line and JR Line, and between Sotetsu Line and Tokyu Line) as a project to enhance the convenience of existing urban railways.

Prestudy for Railway Construction

(1) Research and Planning

  • Prior to constructing work various prestudies are required such as selection of route and station location, the design and construction planning of railway. JRTT is able to implement these studies with high quality as governmentally authorized agency.

(2) Financing

  • A substantial amount of money is required to construct railway. As a trustworthy government agency, JRTT provides not only financing, but also fundraising from private banking.

(3) Preparatory work before construction

  • Before construction, JRTT holds public briefings for local government and local residents on environmental measures against noise and vibration from construction work and public safety,etc.
  • Everyone involved in the construction comes together to make efforts to reduce noise and vibrations during construction and otherwise conserve local environments, and prevents accidents involving third parties and other construction accidents.
