Let's use public transport for relaxation of road congestion and reduction of environmental load!

1.Purpose, summary of business

 Seaside line is new transportation system of extension about 11km to link Keikyu Kanazawa-Hakkei Station to JR Negishi Line Shin-Sugita Station. New transportation system does not change the appearance top with common train, but it is not iron ring and attaches rubber tire and is superior in ride comfort and the low noise characteristics.
 Area that seaside line operates is reclaimed land maintained in the 50, Showa generation from the late 40s of the Showa era and holds 44,000 dweller verbal promises, work force about 40,000, and facility is located now in leisure such as Marine Park, Hakkeijima or bay side marina.
 We will introduce new transportation system to have middle transportation capability without enough transportation capabilities by rail by bus to support traffic demand occurring in this area because transportation capability becomes unreasonable. While Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (the former Ministry of Construction) which was road manager and Yokohama-shi utilized road-related tax revenues, we performed maintenance of structures such as viaducts which ran, and service-centered Yokohama Seaside Line performed maintenance such as electricity, communication facilities or vehicle.
 In addition, we introduce system of unmanned service into all trains from 1994 to raise safety of reduction and service of expense at seaside line.
