Road collapsed again near Shin-Yokohama Station Underground tunnel construction in the area June 30 12:08


Early in the morning on the 30th, I found that about 7 meters square was depressed on the road near JR Shin-Yokohama Station in Yokohama City. In the area, a tunnel for a railway is underground, and a road is sunk in the vicinity on 12th of this month.

Around 5:30 am on the 30th, a passer-by found a depressed road called "ring 2" in Kohoku Ward, Yokohama City.

The collapsed part is gradually expanding, and according to police, it is about 7 meters square across the road and sidewalk at about 10 am.

There are no injuries, but the “Round Line 2” has three closed lanes, including the collapsed lane, all closed to the site.

Underground construction of a railway tunnel is underway in this area, and even on the same ring line 2 about 300 meters southwest, the road has just collapsed on 12th of this month.

The relationship between construction and collapse is unknown, but the Railway and Transportation Organization that ordered the construction has stopped all construction and is investigating the cause of the collapse.

The site is a highway about 1 km northeast of JR Shin-Yokohama Station, and the Yokohama Arena is nearby.
