Cases of response to abnormal rainfall
During September-October 2019, a typhoon No. 15 landed and other storms caused by three storms and abnormal rainfall caused a wide range of traffic closures (Typhoon No. 19: approximately 2,200 km, etc.). Our company has urgently carried out the restoration work while announcing the publicity forecast and the forecast of the suspension of traffic in advance, and canceled the traffic suspension by the next day except for some cases.
October 25 Response to heavy rain disaster in Kanto and Tohoku (Ken-O Road)
At the time of a large-scale power outage due to Typhoon No. 15, there was a power outage for up to 370 hours (16 days) at up to 58 Expressway I canceled the road closure by the next day.
In addition, we implemented Expressway free measures for vehicles engaged in disaster dispatch, including disaster volunteers.
"Alternative road (free) measures" were implemented on the Ban-Etsu Expressway (Ono IC-Koriyama Higashi IC) parallel to National Road No. 49, which was closed due to the bridge subsidence and landslide caused by typhoon 19.
In addition, we supported the restoration of the disaster-stricken areas, such as by cleaning the national highways in the city of Mito, which were flooded by typhoon No. 19 and accumulated sediment.
