Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Akabane visits the southern part of Chiba Prefecture due to the impact of Typhoon No. 15, and the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism aims to secure contractors as it is necessary to increase the number of contractors to remove fallen trees at the site in order to quickly restore Showed ideas to help.
On the 14th, Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Akabane visited Southern Chiba Prefecture and Chiba City where power outages continued.
Of these, in Tateyama City, we visited a site where restoration work for a fallen utility pole was over.
Mr. Akabane explained that Mayor Kanamaru, Tateyama City, explained that fallen trees caused by typhoons hindered restoration work and that it took about two weeks to recover from power failure due to damage to utility poles and electric wires.
In response, Minister Akabane said, “We must move forward firmly”.
Mr. Akabane, who completed the inspection, said, “There is a case where there is a shortage of construction companies to remove fallen trees and restoration work is not possible. With a sense of speed, such as introducing construction companies to electric power companies in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. I would like to proceed with the restoration, "and expressed the idea that the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism will support the securing of contractors.
In the future, if it rains, recovery will be delayed and damage may be expanded. “We want to deliver a blue sheet to prevent rain leaks in broken houses without waiting for a request from the local government. There is a voice that craftsmen with the technology to peel the seats are not secured, so I would like to respond to the request from the construction contractors nationwide. "
