Kyushu Shinkansen Unfinished section in Saga Send off estimated request Send off on August 28, MLIT 11:31
For the section in Saga Prefecture where the construction of the Kyushu Shinkansen / Nagasaki route has not yet started, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism is opposed to the local Saga Prefecture, so the next year's budget estimate request will be made prior to the start of construction. We postponed the recording of costs to assess the impact.
On the 27th day, the ruling party project team aiming to promote the construction of the maintenance Shinkansen for the section from Shin Tosu to Takeo Onsen in Saga Prefecture, which has not yet started construction on the Nagasaki route of the Kyushu Shinkansen, is the same "full standard" as the regular Shinkansen We confirmed the policy that it would be appropriate to maintain.
However, the local Saga Prefecture is consistently opposed to the development of the full standard because of the large financial burden.
For this reason, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will assess the environmental impact required before construction starts for the section from Shin Tosu to Takeo Onsen as it is difficult to proceed without the local understanding. I postponed the recording of.
The ruling party's project team asks the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to repeat discussions with stakeholders including Saga Prefecture for future budgetary measures, but Saga Prefecture does not respond to discussions based on the premise of full standards I have not changed my posture.
The section between Takeo Onsen and Nagasaki, which has already begun construction, is under construction with the aim of opening in 2022 three years later, but how to make a trade-off with Saga for the unfinished section Will be the focus.
