Instructed evacuation plan for 6 Shinkansen vehicle facilities with flood damage assumption.

Following the flooding of the Hokuriku Shinkansen vehicle center due to Typhoon No. 19, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism decided to evacuate six of the Shinkansen train depots nationwide, including those that would be damaged by flooding, by next spring. We instructed JR companies to report specific measures.

In October of Typhoon No. 19, the vehicle center of the Hokuriku Shinkansen in Nagano City was severely damaged by flooding, and the operation was greatly affected, so the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has instituted measures to prevent flooding of 28 Shinkansen facilities nationwide by JR companies. We continued our study and summarized our ideas.

According to this, 16 of the 28 locations are in the inundation area of ​​the national or municipal hazard map, and the largest of the 7 facilities is expected to rain Inundation damage of about 50 cm or more from the ground is assumed.

In the event of the largest possible rainfall,

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will consider specific measures to minimize damage, such as evacuation plans for vehicles, at six facilities where vehicles are stopped, except for the inspection facility Hamamatsu Plant, and report by the spring of next year. We instructed JR companies.

For the Nagano Shinkansen Rolling Stock Center and Torikai Depot, which are at higher risk of flooding, we are also demanding hardware measures such as relocating power equipment to hills and installing waterproof doors.
