The last thing I've read is that it is suppose to open in late 2014.

Yamate Tunnel will be 19.3 km long once it is completed, making it by far the longest twin-tube road tunnel in the world, and also the second longest overall.

Cars allowed to use highway section closed by Fukushima nuclear crisis

The government had lifted a vehicle ban on National Route 6 through the area where residency is restricted due to the crippled Fukushima No. 1 plant, the first time that stretch of highway has been open to automobiles since the nuclear crisis began in March 2011.

However, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians are still not allowed due to the higher risk of radiation exposure, officials said.

The 14-km section passes through the towns of Futaba and Tomioka.

The two missing links of Joban Expressway (including the missing link near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant) will open on 6 December 2014.

Yamate Tunnel, Tokyo

I found some data of the Yamate Tunnel in Tokyo. It will be the longest road tunnel in Japan and second-longest in the world when it opens. It will also be the longest twin-tube tunnel in the world.

The total tunnel length is 19.3 kilometers. However, because Ohashi JCT is west of the actual tunnel, the through length from end to end is 18.2 kilometers. Ohashi JCT is an intermediate interchange (and current end of the tunnel until the extension opens).

At 18.2 km, it is tied with the Fehmarn Belt Tunnel between Denmark and Germany that starts construction in 2015. The Yamate Tunnel opening has been delayed, it will open in March 2015.

A map of the 8.4 km extension (it is south of central Tokyo). The upper left interchange is Ohashi JCT, the lower right interchange is Oi JCT with Bayshore Route.


Oi JCT / 大井 JCT (north is right):

We norwegians are not pleased. As a result, Rogfast (when done) will be 26+ km long.
The longest, deepest, twin-tube underwater motorway tunnel in the world.

I'm not sure why this thread lacks activity. I will now present to you a night cruise along the Metropolitan Expressway Bayshore route.



The video is from a youtuber called cat2525jp. He has loads of videos showcasing Japanese roads.

The Central Circular Route will be completed on 7 March 2015, with the opening of the Yamate Tunnel extension. The tunnel will be 19.3 kilometers long (18.2 km end to end, plus the underground sections of the Ohashi interchange which is offset from the main tunnel).

it takes 20 minutes from Shinjuku to Haneda ( 40 minutes )
then it was finished since the first plan in 1963.

Yep, that's correct, because the tunnel is already partially in service since 2007. It is built in two stages, with Ohashi as an intermediate junction. Ohashi - Oi will open in March.

Will it be one continuous tunnel? It would be one of the longest in the world (the second longest, if I'm not mistaken)

Yes, it will be the second-longest tunnel in the world at 18.2 km end-to-end and 19.3 km including the Ohashi interchange.

Careful now, we're only talking about road tunnels here.

Some interesting stuff was implemented today on a section of the Shuto expressway. A system with flashing lights seemingly going in a certain direction was implemented on a section with an incline where people would usually inadvertently slow down. They are calling these escort lights and the way it works is that as cars go slower, the lights go faster. It will allow traffic jams to be less frequent and they are considering installing the system in other sections of expressways prone to traffic jams because of inclines.

My explanation may not have made much sense so here's a video from a news agency:
