Expressway Maintenance and service
24/7, safe, secure and comfortable Expressway To support
We prioritize safety over everything, and are safe and comfortable Expressway By providing space, customers can trust Expressway We will strive to enhance the maintenance and service of the company. I want customers to feel that they want to run today and tomorrow. To that end, we believe it is important to realize a service that is more visible than ever, and above all, that customers can feel.
Inspection of road structures
Inspection of road structures is the basis for early detection of changes in road structures, etc., taking prompt and appropriate measures, and maintaining good conditions over the long term.
In addition to checking the state of road structures through daily patrols, detailed inspections of structures such as bridges and tunnels are conducted once every five years based on laws and regulations.
For structures that have been confirmed to have been damaged by inspection, a repair plan will be formulated and repairs will be performed at an early stage.
In addition, we will actively adopt new inspection technologies in order to accurately grasp the state of structures that are difficult to inspect, such as bridges in confined spaces.
Renewal and repair of road structures
Implementation of Expressway Renewal Project
On March 25, 2015, the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism received a business license based on the Act on Special Measures for Road Maintenance for large-scale renewals and large-scale repairs. Starting in fiscal 2015, we will consider specific ways to proceed with the business and, in cooperation with related organizations, promote the Expressway Renewal Project (large-scale renewal and large-scale repair business).
Implementation image Floor slab replacement work
Replace reinforced concrete slabs with more durable prestressed concrete slabs. By changing one side at a time according to face-to-face traffic regulation, the impact on traffic due to construction is reduced.
Strengthen control of vehicles violating excess weight
Expressway For vehicles that violate the Vehicle Restriction Ordinance, such as excess weight, which may significantly affect the deterioration of the structure of the vehicle and lead to serious traffic safety accidents, We are working to reduce the number of vehicles that violate the event by holding discounts on “classes” and “large frequent discounts”.
Resistant to disaster Expressway Making
Securing emergency transportation routes in the event of a disaster
In response to the partial revision of the Disaster Countermeasures Basic Act, we are strengthening measures to move abandoned vehicles and stuck vehicles that would impede the passage of emergency vehicles in the event of a large-scale earthquake or heavy snow.
During the heavy snowfall in Gifu Prefecture in December 2014 Expressway By applying 71 vehicles for the first time and moving 71 stuck vehicles, we tried to secure early traffic routes and support emergency rescue vehicles.
Securing traffic during stormy weather
In response to the record heavy snowfall in the Kanto and Koshin regions in February 2014, expansion of advance public relations recommending withdrawal, Safety on the Expressway Enhancing awareness-raising activities, strengthening pre-placement of snow removal vehicles, increasing the number of rotary snow removal vehicles, strengthening the snow removal system, such as efficient operation through the introduction of a location information system, and strengthening cooperation with related organizations. We strive to ensure smooth traffic during stormy weather.
Traffic accident prevention, traffic safety measures
The number of fatal accidents in 2014 is slightly decreasing compared to the previous year, but there are many “anti-stop vehicles” and “person-to-person” accidents. `` Hardware measures '' that lead to reduction of serious traffic accidents and improvement of driving environment such as high-intensity lane marks, traffic safety campaigns and Expressway Holding a road safety seminar, Safety on the Expressway We are developing “soft measures”, which are safety awareness activities, such as providing traffic congestion prediction guides.
In addition, in the Tajimi area of the ChuoExpwy, a trial run of lane operation to switch from a climbing lane to a driving lane was conducted to reduce the risk of traffic accidents and increase traffic capacity.
Changes in fatal accidents over time
Hardware measures to prevent serious traffic accidents
High performance pavement
Improved protective fence
High brightness lane mark
Software measures such as traffic safety awareness activities
Strengthen measures to prevent reverse running
Leading to serious accidents Expressway In order to prevent reverse running, we have implemented physical measures such as visual measures such as large arrow road markings and rubber poles to prevent U-turns in interchanges and service areas.
Promotion of traffic congestion mitigation measures at bottleneck locations
In order to reduce traffic congestion at bottlenecks, we will set up additional lanes at traffic congestion points and build networks by improving Shin-Tomei Expressway and Shin-Meishin Expwy as measures against traffic congestion. Promote.
Response to unauthorized traffic
Response to unauthorized traffic
As a measure against unauthorized traffic such as forced breakthroughs and ETC non-charged vehicles, an additional bar and surveillance camera were added to the toll gate, and vehicles were identified through video confirmation and data survey analysis, etc. We are striving to collect.
For addicts and malicious persons, we will face a strong stance such as payment claim lawsuits, police reports and investigation cooperation.
In addition, we are working to ensure the recovery of causal contributions that require the cause of the accident to pay for the road restoration after the accident.
Promotion of ETC2.0 service-New fee policy for "use wisely"
"ETC2.0"Expressway In addition to paying tolls, we provide driving assistance services that are beneficial to drivers, such as avoiding traffic jams and driving safety.
We are aiming to improve road management and traffic jam information using the ETC 2.0 service, and we are developing safe driving support technologies and studying policy fees for mitigating congestion in cooperation with related organizations. The
We will also work with related organizations to support the spread of ETC2.0 on-board devices.
