JR East released plans for a complete renovation, including a new station building on the Omote-sando side of Harajuku Station on the Yamanote Line in Tokyo.

http://www.jreast.co.jp/press/2016/20160605.pdf

http://www.asahi.com/ajw/articles/AJ201606090027.html





A completely new entrance building will be constructed above the tracks that gives access to the platforms. The currently disused Special Exit on the Meiji Jingu Side will be transformed into the new platform for the trains in the direction of Shinjuku. The current platform will become the platform for the trains in the direction of Shibuya.




The new passage way to the platforms.




It's unclear what will happen with the current station building, JR East is considering what they are going to do with it. But the location of the new building doesn't conflict with the old characteristic station building from 1924, so it doesn't have to be demolished for the new station.

It's also unclear if there will be changes to the Takeshita Entrance, although the underpass there will also have to be connected to the new platform.


The current platform:

Sendagaya Station on the Chuo-Sobu Line will also be renovated as it will be the main station at the new Olympic Stadium.

It will get a 2nd platform, which is currently also already there as a special platform and the station building will be renovated. As it's located underneath the viaduct of the Shuto Expressway #4, it will not be a station that will stand out.

...I have saying for DECADES that the other platform at Harajuku should be permanently used.

As soon as I got the press release from JR East, I did a "happy dance" at my desk!

Where is that?
Various locations from Higashi Osaka City where the train was built by Kinki-Sharyo Ltd (I used to live across the street from there 15 years ago!) All the way to Yokohama. From there, it gets hauled onto Tokyu tracks because there's the direct connection to the Hibiya line at Naka-Meguro station.

Would be really interesting to see if they stabled it at Nagatsuta or Motosumiyoshi yards temporarily.

The proposed new Harajuku ticket hall seems like it would only increase the transfer time to the subway...

If you've ever tried to get from the Yamanote platforms to the Chiyoda/Fukutoshin platforms on a sunny Saturday afternoon currently, you'd know that this is a moot point. It can take as long as 10 minutes to leave due to the narrow platform.

What changes are expected at Shinanomachi station? Ticket hall renewal or what else?

I did, on a Sunday, where there was barely enough space to walk in the station concourse, let alone the platforms.

The new concourse above the tracks, from what I see, would add more vertical distance to the subway.

Do you have a different solution? The fact that the line is located in a cutting pretty much mandates a station be built overhead. Any connection to the metro at ground level and below would be prohibitively expensive in terms of cost/benefit. How much passenger interchange actually occurs at this location between JR-E and Tokyo Metro??

Possibly, but I'm sure there'll be escalators and elevators put in as well. Ideally a separate transfer gate in the underground hallway of the subway station could be installed by JR that then leads directly up to the Yamanote platforms. This is the same as what's done at Hiyoshi station in Yokohama and Chikusa station in Nagoya.

Obviously this is very expensive to do though, and isn't very cost effective; there aren't many people that transfer here like that to justify the expense.

It will get platform doors, more elevators and larger toilets.

I read they recently designated the commuter/subway train based around the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line service as F Liner.

I'm not sure if that's such a good idea, though. Reason: this new designation does not differentiate between trains coming in from (and going to) Tobu Kawagoeshi Station and Seibu Hanno Station. They should designate the trains as F Liner T for trains coming from and going to Tobu Kawagoeshi Station and F Liner S for trains coming from and going to Seibu Hanno Station.

From what I see "F Liner" is used in the same style as the limited express names - for example "NEX for Yokohama/Omiya".

So you'd have "F Liner (for Kawagoeshi)" and "F Liner (for Hanno)". Same old advice applies - keep an eye out for what the front of the train says.

And it only applies to some services as well, I think the existing Tobu through service with local running on the Tojo Line still stays, for example.

It's really easy to know, because it's written pretty much everywhere on the train and in the station and the announcements on PA.
"This is the F-Liner Limited Express bound for Hanno. This train will run under F Liner service as an Express on the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line and as an F Liner Rapid Express on the Seibu line."

TLDR, it's incredibly difficult to not know where the train is going.

9000 series refurbishment



The early sets (01 to 08) are scheduled to undergo a program of refurbishment from 2016, with the first treated sets returning to service from August 2016. Internally, the transverse seating bays at the ends of cars will be replaced by longitudinal bench seats, and wheelchair spaces will be added to one end of each car. They added a pair of 17'' screen above each door. Externally, the refurbished sets will receive a revised livery with wavy turquoise and white stripes at waist height and shoulder height to make the line color more visible at stations with platform edge doors.

















The Tokyo Metro 9000 series is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by Tokyo Metro on the Namboku Line in Tokyo, since 1991.

Current trains:


1 to 4 batch (1991 ~ 2000)


5 batch (2009)
