Route K7 of the Shuto Expressway opens to traffic tomorrow (March 18). It is an 8.2 kilometer expressway through the northern part of Yokohama, linking the Bayshore Route, Yokohane Route (K1) and the Daisan-Keihin Road. It is 70% underground, but it features a cool interchange with the Yokohane Route (K1):

A recent blog post asked that very same question, and the answer was that they were still working on land acquisition and preliminary exploratory digging to make sure they're not going through any valuable archeological sites. So no timeline set.

Shuto K7

A video of the new Shuto Expressway Route K7 in Yokohama.

Interestingly, the tunnel has a shoulder. These are generally omitted due to cost. The Bayshore Route interchange near the end is also mind-boggling.

I can't wait until they put the extension going the other way to the Tomei Expressway. Not sure if and when that's going to happen but there definitely are some proposals and it would help me out tremendously

Chubu-Odan Expressway

A 9 kilometer segment of the super two Chubu-Odan Expressway opened to traffic today in Yamanashi Prefecture. It runs from Rokugo to Masuho. It contains several tunnels.

Keinawa Expressway

A 5.5 kilometer extension of the Keinawa Expressway opened to traffic on 18 March, from Iwade-Negoro to Wakayama JCT (Hanwa Expressway). This is south of Osaka.



A mock-up sign including the new E-numbering E42. I haven't seen a photo of real signage with E-numbering.




Lots of photos here: http://travel.watch.impress.co.jp/do...s/1050277.html

Would anybody happen to have a map of the Shin-Tomei's planned route up beyond Gotenba?

March 2017 expressway openings

The Japanese fiscal year ends 31 March. Typically, a large number of expressways open halfway the fiscal year (October) and at the end of the fiscal year (March). 2017 (or FY2016 if you want) is no exception.

I found a number of expressways that open this month, most of these are super-two expressways.

* 11 March: a 3 kilometer segment of the Minami-Kyushu Expressway opened to traffic between Takoano-kita and Noda
* 18 March: the 8.2 kilometer Route K7 of the Shuto Expressway in Yokohama opened to traffic
* 18 March: the southernmost 5.5 km of the Keinawa Expressway opened to traffic in Wakayama
* 19 March: a 9 kilometer segment of the Chubu-Odan Expressway opens to traffic between Rokugo and Masuho
* 20 March: a 3 kilometer extension of the Sanriku Expressway opens in tsunami-ravaged Minamisanriku
* 25 March: a 9 kilometer extension of the Kitakinki-Toyooka Expressway opens between localities known as Yoka Hyonosen and Hidaka-shinnabe Kogen
* 26 March: the first 17 kilometer segment of the eastern leg of the Tohoku-Chuo Expressway opens to traffic between Joban Expressway in Soma and Tamano.

Does someone knows why this interchange at the end of the aqua-line just south of Haneda Airport is only half-completed and which roads were (or are) planned to link with the missing ramps?

The Tomei connection is supposed to be completed in FY2021, so March 2022? According to plans anyway. Once it's completed, I'll probably be using it to get back from Tomei as well.

You mean the section from Gotenba east? Nexco Central has a clickable interactive map, but it's all in Japanese.

There were plans for building a parking/service area at Ukishima Junction, but that sort of got scrapped (or maybe it's just in hiatus). Anyway, they got as far as building the connections, and that's what shows up in the aerial photo.

A 11.2 km extension of the Asahikawa-Monbetsu Expressway in Hokkaido opened in 19 March 2017, extending the last section of the expressway from Maruseppu IC further east to the new En'garusetose IC.
The expressway itself is a continuation of the Hokkaido expressway connecting Sapporo and Asahikawa, the two largest cities in Hokkaido, and will shorten the travel distance from the capital to the eastern town of Kitami, Abashiri and Shiretoko Peninsula, famous for its drifting ice in winter and the national park of Shiretoko.

The K7/K1 interchange is a work of art. Nice and compact, double decked with surface streets underneath, nestled between dense development.

If I wanted to be a party pooper I'd point out that it has offside entries aplenty

But it really is a nice interchange - amazingly compact for a freeflow interchange, and looks like it's full access too.

A landslide has blocked the Chuo Expressway in Mizunami, not far east of Nagoya:

It's been raining for more than 10 consecutive days in eastern part of Japan due to strong pressure of cold air from Okhotsk Sea colliding with warm moist air from Pacific Ocean, according to the news. Interestingly, when I checked google traffic alert just now, that blocked expressway has been opened, so apparently the clean up was very quick.

Meanwhile, a 7.2 km section connecting Gose Minami IC (御所南) with Gojo Kita IC (五條北) on the approx. 120 km of the Keinawa Expressway (京奈和道) connecting Kyoto, Nara and Wakayama has been opened yesterday, on August 19th.

After completing the last section between Kashihara Kita IC and Kashihara Takada IC, the Nara-Wakayama part will be completed and will fully connect Wakayama with Meihan Expressway (名阪道) which connects Nagoya and Osaka so that it could completely bypass expressways in Osaka, which are often congested.
