The partial completion of linear Chuo Shinkansen has been pushed back to 2031

TOKYOApril 05 (News On Japan) – JR Central has announced that the completion of some parts of the construction of the “Linear Chuo Shinkansen” in Yamanashi and Nagano Prefectures is expected to be postponed until 2031.

JR Central had previously abandoned its planned opening year of 2027 last week, marking the first time the company had set a construction period beyond 2027. According to JR Central’s announcement, construction of the Yamanashi Prefecture Station and the “Zakoji Viaduct” in Iida, Nagano Prefecture is expected to be completed in 2031.

JR Central revealed on March 29 that it had to abandon its goal of opening in 2027 due to Shizuoka Prefecture’s continued refusal to begin construction. All construction work on the Linear project is scheduled to be completed in 2027, but this is the first time a timeline has been set beyond that year.

JR Central estimates that construction work in Shizuoka could take about ten years, indicating that even if construction could begin immediately, the opening would be delayed until 2034 or later. However, with Governor Kawakatsu of Shizuoka Prefecture indicating his intention to resign, there is increasing attention on whether this development could lead to progress in the situation.
