MC

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

Reporter

Regarding the provision of wire rope in the temporary two-lane, Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism is Expressway Expressway managed by the company is said to be the target time until March 2021. I am. Please tell me if the statement from the president, "About three years ago" is the same as Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, or if the next three years will be June or July 2021.

Charge

We will continue to make adjustments so that we can install it by the end of 2020 within the same three years as Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.

Reporter

Regarding the location where the wire rope will be installed, it means that we will make a plan from now on, but where and how many kilometers the temporary two-lane of the two-way traffic is on the route managed by your company and the new construction currently under construction It is said that the wire rope will be installed from the beginning in the section, but please tell us which section specifically refers to.

President

Regarding the new section currently being constructed, for example, the Chubu Odan Expressway is applicable. Regarding the provisional two lanes that have already been opened, we plan to install them in the earthwork section of the total length of about 280km.

Reporter

This month, there was a case where a concrete piece dropped near the Suzuka IC Higashi-Meihan Expressway. Please tell us again about the cause and recurrence prevention.

President

We are currently inspecting similar parts and plan to complete all inspections by tomorrow. Regarding the situation of the accident, the floor slab under the pavement turned into sediment and fell. Fortunately, the back of the floor slab was covered with a fall-prevention sheet, so it wasn't a large piece of concrete that fell, but a small stone that fell apart. We are currently conducting an investigation, and once the cause is known, we would like to take appropriate measures.

Reporter

Please tell me how many inspections there are in similar areas.

President

An emergency inspection is being carried out at 34 bridges, targeting the Higashi-Meihan Expressway, which is under construction at the same time and has the same traffic volume.

Reporter

Please tell us the reason why the stock effect of Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway was calculated as 3.7 trillion yen. Also, please tell us if there is something like 3.7 trillion yen in 10 years that would be an index similar to that here on other routes.

President

We will check the data for other routes, so please take a moment. The calculation basis of 3.7 trillion yen is calculated using the regional econometric analysis model. To put it simply, Expressway can reduce the time required, so it was calculated by a model of how much economic effect there was.

Reporter

Regarding the stock effect on the Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway, please give us your impressions of the president after seeing the economic effect of 3.7 trillion yen and economic growth of 0.8%.

President

We evaluate it as a very effective road. Currently, we are working on 4 lanes from Shirotori IC to HidaKiyomi IC, but I think that the effect will be further enhanced when this is completed. The remaining section from HidaKiyomi IC to Oyabe Tonami JCT is a two-way street, but this section is a mountainous section with many tunnels, which is a bottleneck in traffic operation, so I would like to solve it as soon as possible.

Reporter

Suzuka IC in a matter of concrete pieces falling in the vicinity of, but is that the deck was sediment reduction, Higashi-Meihan Expressway is in that has passed about 50 years from the construction in many sections, the concrete is not limited to the floor slab useful Please tell me if there is any danger in other areas such as the number of years.

President

Since concrete structures are also placed in various environmental conditions, there are places where deterioration is easy and places where it is difficult to proceed, so we think that it is necessary to proceed with inspections and repairs with such things in mind. I am. A typical example is the large-scale renewal / repair business that is being carried out in the form of so-called renewal work. As for the floor slab, it is known by inspection that the deterioration is severe, so we are replacing it in a planned manner.

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