In the construction business division, we are developing a road construction business with the aim of improving the network of Expressway and further improving their functions.

Expressway network has been steadily improved, but there are still missing links in the Tokyo metropolitan area and other areas. Under severe constraints in urban areas, we will complete the network with the latest technology, placing safety first.

Even on completed Expressway, further improvements in functionality are required from the perspectives of improving safety, time reliability, comfort, and ensuring redundancy. We will proceed with the provision of temporary lanes with 4 lanes, installation of additional lanes, smart interchanges and new rest facilities while securing traffic on existing roads.

In addition to the construction technology we have cultivated so far, we will further improve productivity with the latest technologies such as i-Construction, while giving top priority to safety, pursuing quality and cost and striving to build a more reliable road I will continue.
