[We will establish a relay distribution base at Shin-Tomei Expressway Hamamatsu SA (Out-bound)]
See Appendix 4.
In recent years, improving the long working hours of truck drivers and securing a labor force have become issues in the transportation industry.
As part of our solution to this problem, we have decided to work with Enshu Truck Co., Ltd. to establish a relay distribution base on the site of Hamamatsu SA (Out-bound line) in Shin-Tomei Expressway.
This is the first Expressway company's business to be available to all logistics operators.
Relay logistics means long-distance transportation is shared by multiple drivers in order to improve truck drivers' long working hours.
Specifically, truck drivers from the Kanto and Kansai areas exchange trailers and transfer trucks at Hamamatsu SA relay points, thereby transporting cargo to their destinations and driving long distances. It is possible to operate on a day trip without operating.
This relay distribution base is scheduled to open around the summer of this year.
Please see pages 4 and 3 of Document 4.
The facility of this relay distribution base has a site area of about 8,000m. Two , We plan to secure 30 parking spaces for semi-trailers.
In addition, the price is planned to be 600 yen per car per use.
We will implement this business as one of the efforts to support "work style reform" in the transportation industry.
We will continue to actively support the logistics business, including double-connected trucks, automated driving of trucks, and platooning so that we can use the Expressway more comfortably and conveniently.

Next year, may 26, 2019, marks exactly 50 years since the entire line opened.
As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we plan to make various efforts to express our gratitude for our customers' use so far.
Therefore, we have decided to create the "Tomei 50th Anniversary Logo Mark" to be used in the initiatives to be developed in the future.
We would like to decide this commemorative logo mark by your vote from the three design proposals described on page 1 of Material 5, so thank you for your cooperation.
We also give ballots to the press, so I would like you to vote.
Today, April 25, 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the first opening of some sections of Tomei.

We will continue to develop initiatives that will please customers who use Expressway.
We will let you know again when the details are decided.

[Development of safety measures products for road work within traffic regulations]
Next is the topic on technology development.
See Appendix 6.
While working on a Expressway with traffic restrictions, there may be an accident that a passing vehicle accidentally enters the traffic restrictions and collides with a construction vehicle or a worker, or even if it does not lead to an accident, it may contact the regulated material. Many have occurred. On average, about 100 accidents occur each year.
Therefore, today, we are introducing a safety measure product, "Emergency Remote Shirasu-da", which is a safety measure product for protecting workers during road work that is subject to traffic restrictions.
This product was jointly developed by our Companies in our Group, Nakanihon Highway Engineering Nagoya Co., Ltd. (Engineering Nagoya) and Nakanihon Highway Maintenance Nagoya Co., Ltd. (Maintenance Nagoya).
"Emergency Remote Shirasu-dan" has the function of "Emergency Remote Notification System" that instantly detects the entry of general vehicles into the traffic regulation and notifies the danger to a wide area, and has a safety flag (Anzen Hatta). By combining the respective functions of the “shirasu-dan”, which the security staff notifies the operator directly of the emergency from the transmitter built into the safety flag, the aim is to further improve the safety of road work. I did it.
The details will be explained in detail by the staff in charge after the conference, so please be sure to interview us.
The product developed this time has already been used in the road work involving traffic regulations carried out by ENG Nagoya and maintenance Nagoya.
In order to realize safe and comfortable Expressway, we will continue to develop technology, including accident prevention measures associated with traffic regulations, as a group.
We are also actively developing technology through open innovation. Also on our official website, "technology related to Expressway Renewal Project that leads to reduction of life cycle cost and quality assurance", "technology leading to advanced inspection", "technology that uses ICT to support traffic safety and alleviate traffic congestion" , We are always looking for information and suggestions that will lead to new technology development under the four themes of "Technology that will lead to support on the road side for popularizing autonomous driving", and we would appreciate your cooperation in providing information.

MC

These are the topics we have prepared today. Now, let's receive your questions.

Reporter

Regarding the memorial monument of the accidental fall of the Sasago Tunnel ceiling, I think that it is probably a stone monument when you look at the image diagram of the material, but I would like you to tell me the material, whether the name of the dead person is engraved, Also, please tell me if the contents of the text to be engraved on the inscription are fixed.

President

The material is a stone made in Japan. I would like to decide the inscription in consultation with the bereaved families. As for the monument, the name of the deceased person will be engraved, but I would like to decide it in consultation with the bereaved families.

Reporter

I have been repeatedly told that "while consulting with the bereaved families," but regarding the design of the memorial monument, there is something that reflects the wishes and opinions of the bereaved family, and the explanation on April 13 If you look at the picture of the party, I think that you are probably going to the site, but please tell me that as well.

President

On April 13, we will guide the bereaved families to the site and ask their opinions. Regarding the design, we have received suggestions from people with bereaved families, and have summarized the design while presenting it to everyone.

Reporter

Regarding the memorial monument, for example, the first Hatsukari PA is designed with the image of a palm, but if there is anything you can talk about specifically, such as reflecting the opinions of the bereaved family, please tell us.

President

I will refrain from giving my name, but I have received feedback from people with bereaved families about how such a design should be, and I have finished based on that.

Reporter

There is no doubt that the location of the memorial monument at the east entrance of the Sasago Tunnel is on the Out-bound line side, and the location of the accident is on the In-bound line.

President

The accident occurred on the In-bound line and the memorial monument was installed on the Out-bound line.

Reporter

Please tell me how to explain the opposite.

President

We decided to consider various conditions, such as the fact that there was a space that could be installed on the Out-bound line side, that we could see the wellhead on the In-bound line side, and that it was a place where everyone could easily go.

Reporter

What is the investment amount for the relay distribution base of Hamamatsu SA

President

The total cost of our company and Enshu Truck is 50 million yen.

Reporter

Please tell me if you have any plans to make it in other places.

President

If the business situation at Hamamatsu SA is good, I would like to consider building it elsewhere.

Reporter

Regarding `` Shirasu-dan '' that informs the worker's helmet of danger, it is said that about 100 accidents have occurred on average in one year, but is this a number including those who did not get injured? please tell me.

President

This number includes those who did not get hurt. In addition, last year there was an accident in Tajimi City on the Chuo Expressway Expressway, but last year there were 4 people, no fatal accident in the previous year, and 1 person in the previous year. I am. There are many other people who have been injured. Please contact the department in charge for specific numbers later.

Reporter

You say that you are actually using this product as a safety measure for road work. How long have you been using this product?

Employee

The product I've been talking about today has been in use since April of this year. There are two products, "Emergency Remote Notification System" and "Shirasu-dan", on page 3 of Document 6, which were developed and used about two years ago, and this time we are linking them to develop a product. Did.

Reporter

There is a proposal from the bereaved family about the memorial monument of the Sasago Tunnel accident, and it means that you adopted a design with an image of the gassho, but what kind of thought did you put in the gassho as your company? There was a story that you will decide the final point in consultation with the bereaved family regarding the choice and the inscription, but from the perspective of your company at this point, what kind of thought do you put? Please tell me if you want to.

President

We should do our best to provide a safe Expressway the determination not to cause such an accident again, but before that, we apologize to all those who died. In the sense of praying, I think that a design with the image of a gassho is appropriate. Regarding the inscription, I would like to think about the text from now on, including what kind of accident it was, who died, what we swear at this memorial, etc. I am.

Reporter

Although it is a bit off story, the Kofu District Prosecutor's Office decided that the officers of your company have sent documents to the Yamanashi Prefectural Police, and the bereaved family has recently interviewed the result. , I have decided on a policy to appeal to the public prosecution committee because the result is dissatisfied, and I am currently preparing for that. As your company's representative, please tell us how you are accepting the movements of your bereaved family.

President

We are not in a position to comment on the prosecution because it is the prosecution's decision, but we would like to continue to respond to the bereaved families as closely as we can. Specifically, I would like to talk about the memorial service in this way, and I will always report our efforts to improve safety to the bereaved families once a year. Also, a memorial service is held every year. While continuing to do this, I would like to continue working closely with the bereaved families.

Reporter

I think you conducted a survey of usage intentions of the Hamamatsu SA logistics base prior to opening the business, but what is the tendency of the opinions and voices given here, and if there is a part reflected based on that opinion, Please tell me that as well.

President

Many logistics companies, from large to small companies, responded to the questionnaire, but the majority of them wanted to use it. Specific requirements will be explained from the department in charge.

Employee

During the hearing, there are times when the car from Tokyo and the car from Osaka do not match the timing, so there are many opinions that I want you to be able to reserve a parking lot with a lot of time, and I often use it at night. Therefore, I have received the opinion that I want you to properly maintain lighting etc.

Reporter

For the distribution base of Hamamatsu SA, please tell us whether the operator is your company or Enshu Truck.

President

Operation after the opening will be carried out by Enshu Truck.

Reporter

It is a confirmation, but does it mean that you will be paying 50 million yen each for the pavement and equipment related costs?

President

That's right.

Reporter

Assuming the company used, please tell us what kind of company such as small and medium-sized companies and large companies will be used.

President

In the results of the questionnaire, we have heard from a wide range of businesses from large to small companies that they would like to use it. I think that you will understand concretely when you actually start sales.

Reporter

If you are a logistics company, does it mean that you can use it without any particular restrictions, as long as you register in advance?

President

That's it.

Reporter

I would like to ask three points regarding the memorial service for the Sasago Tunnel accident. The first point is whether the memorial monument of Hatsukari PA is built by renovating the present flower stand, the second point is whether both inscriptions have the same content, the third point is that Hatsukari PA is a Expressway Please tell me about the above three points, whether the memorial monument at the entrance of the tunnel east pit can be parked here for ordinary people and those traveling on the Expressway.

President

The first point is that the existing flower stand will be removed once, and a flower stand and a bookkeeping room will be constructed along with the memorial monument. Regarding the content of the second inscription, as I mentioned earlier, I am in consultation with the bereaved families, so I will not be sure of the content of the inscription, but which memorial monument to engrave. It will be decided in consultation with the bereaved families. Regarding the third point, it is not possible to stop the car while driving on the Expressway and stop at the memorial monument at the east entrance of the tunnel, so you will have to enter from the general road.

Reporter

What is the major reason why the relay distribution base of Hamamatsu SA is located in Hamamatsu instead of Aichi Prefecture?

President

The biggest thing is that it is in the middle of Tokyo and Osaka, and that you can effectively use the land that is not currently used, and in addition, there is also a smart IC so you can enter and leave cars It was selected because the conditions are in place.

MC

It seems that your question has been interrupted, so this is the end of your regular meeting.
