Concerning fee revenue, the convenience promotion project by national expenses ended at the end of March last year, and the fee system was reviewed from April, but for the three months until the end of June, due to mitigation measures, an originally discounted holiday The discount has been deferred to 5 discounts. Therefore, this year, there was a 20% discount difference compared to the previous year, resulting in an increase of 9.8% year-on-year. This trend is expected to continue until June.

As for the number of passing vehicles, compared with last year when the fare system was revised, this month was almost flat, increasing by 1.1% year-on-year.

See page 2 of document 1.

Regarding the ETC situation, the average daily usage rate in May was 91.1%.

Next is the situation of the service area.

Sales in the service area in May were ¥16,588 million, an increase of 3.4% year-on-year. Sales of the Food and Beverage Sales Division increased 5.7% year-on-year.

The reason for the increase is that the number of consecutive holidays and the number of holiday days of GW is larger this year than in the previous year, and the number of days and blessings are good.

Sales of gasoline decreased by 2.3% year-on-year. The reason is that all oil types are below the selling price of the previous year.

[Moderator]

Now, we are ready to receive your questions.

 

[Reporter]

It's been 50 years since the whole Meishin line was opened, but I would like to ask you about the acceptance of the 50th anniversary again and the effect that Meishin has opened.

[Miyaike president]

The Meishin Expwy has played a very important role in the last 50 years. The most important thing is that the problem of deterioration is advancing. I think that my biggest challenge is to carry out large-scale renewal and large-scale repair work so that everyone can use the Expressway safely and with peace of mind.

Regarding the effect, Meishin Expwy can shorten the time and bring about a great economic effect, and there are many industries concentrated around Expressway. Even in recent cases, new effects such as the accumulation of factories near the interchange of Ken-O Road, which has been opened, can be seen, but Meishin is a pioneer. In the future, if Shin-Meishin Expressway opens, we think that it will become a double network and its importance will increase.

 

[Reporter]

The large-scale renewal will start from now on, and it will take about 10 years to implement it. What kind of problems do you have?

[Miyaike president]

The biggest challenge is to manage and operate the network by minimizing the impact of traffic restrictions such as suspension of traffic due to large-scale updates. I also think it is important to build a reliable Expressway that will last a long time, and to work while successfully establishing both. For example, by ordering the work for a certain section at once, or by ordering the work for various types of work at once, we have been working to reduce costs and construction periods, or improve durability while introducing new technology. I am thinking.

On the other hand, there are two major factors that accelerate the deterioration of roads. One is the acceleration of damage to the road due to the running of overloaded large vehicles, and the other is the effect of salt used as a measure to prevent freezing in winter. We believe it is important to consider these measures as well.

 

[Reporter]

I would like to ask about double networks. Shin-Meishin Expressway in Mie Prefecture section of was opened, or do you think that there is any such thing as the role of Meishin.

[Miyaike president]

Higashi-Meihan Expressway is causing inconvenience due to chronic traffic congestion. Shin-Meishin Expressway and Mie Prefecture section of double-networked opened, traffic is distributed, I think that this congestion is also reduced. In addition, I think that it has a role as a detour to avoid congestion during large-scale renewal and large-scale repair work.

 

[Reporter]

Please tell us about your impressions of your first year in office.

[Miyaike president]

As I said after moving from an electric power company, when I was appointed, my job was to make a so-called lifeline: safe, stable, inexpensive, environmentally friendly and comfortable for our customers. Is to provide you with a Expressway. I feel that this is an industry in common with electric power companies. This year, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the split privatization, and during this time, I feel that we are doing well in a difficult situation, such as the Sasago Tunnel accident and the tax evasion case of employees before that.

Over the past year, we have visited 40 maintenance and service centers and construction offices, and while talking to our employees, let's continue our efforts to become a company that customers can trust, taking advantage of the hardships of these 10 years. I am arguing with.

 

[Reporter]

I think that when the road corporation was privatized 10 years ago, it was planned to repay the debt and make it free by 2050. There are users who think that tolls should be reduced on Expressway with a large number of users. What do you think about the toll system for the last 10 years?

[Miyaike president]

Regarding the fee system, we have reported on the results achieved in 10 years. One is to cut the management cost at that time by 30% and use the resources to provide time zone discounts and other discounts. In terms of construction costs, we have cut costs by about 20% on new routes and cut personnel costs by about 10%. We are steadily returning the initial interest-bearing debt. We will continue to aim to be a company that customers can trust.

 

[Reporter]

We have decided that the summit will be held in Ise-Shima on May 26th and 27th next year. Please tell us your thoughts on this.

[Miyaike president]

The other day, Mie Prefecture requested to participate in the Summit Prefectural Conference, but we would like to cooperate fully with the aim of the success of this Summit, to ensure the safety and security of people involved when they move. I am. In addition, since it overlaps with the Higashimeisaka refresh work that is being carried out every year, we would like to coordinate the timing of the work with related organizations in the future.

 

[Reporter]

I think that the number of foreign visitors will increase, but what about the company's response to this?

[Miyaike president]

The other day, Shoryudo was certified as one of the seven wide-area sightseeing routes. Our company has already issued a free pass for foreigners, and we are working to promote multilingualization of service areas and to establish an environment where Wi-Fi can be used.
