Extension of platforms at Togoshi Kōen platforms complete
http://shinagawa.keizai.biz/headline/1759

Quote:
 東急大井町線戸越公園駅(品川区戸越5)は2月24日、ホームの延伸工事完了に伴い大井町方面2両のドアカットが解消された。

 ドアカットは、ホームより列車の全長が長いために一部のドアを開けられず、限られた車両のドアから乗降すること。車内では戸越公園駅到着前に、「本日より5両全てのドアがご利用いただけます」と、車掌のアナウンスが流れた。

 18メートル車両×3両編成(1965年3月まで)、18メートル車両×4両編成(1974年3月まで)が往来していた時期は、同駅では車両の全てのドアが開閉していた。しかし、1974(昭和49)年4月より乗客の増加によって20メート車両×4両編成となり、ホームの長さが不足。近年は20メートル車両×5両編成が運行し大井町側2両がドアカット状態だったが、約40年ぶりに全てのドアが開くようになった。

 東京急行電鉄広報課の柳澤成行さんは「車両を増やした当初からドアカットを解消したい思いはあったが、ホームの延伸には用地が必要。土地を確保できたことで、ようやく実現に至った」と話す。ホームの延伸には下神明2号踏切を移設し、スペースを確保した。

 近隣に住む女性は「戸越公園駅から大井町駅に向かう場合、利用できない大井町側の車両が大井町駅の改札に一番近いので、乗り換えで急いでいるときにすごく不便だった。扉が開くようになって良かった」と話す。「友達が家に来るときは毎回、『大井町駅側の車両は開かないから乗らないでね』と伝えていた。扉が開かないことを知らない人が慌てて隣の車両に移って降りたり、降りそびれる光景を何度も目にしたりと、ハプニングが多かった」と笑う。

 同線で唯一のドアカット状態となる九品仏駅については、「残念ながら、現時点でホームの延伸は未定」と柳澤さん。「今後も引き続き、安全性や利便性の向上に努めていく。お客さまに『選ばれる沿線』となれれば」と話す。

 戸越公園駅の1日の平均乗降者数は約1万2,000人(2011年度)。

This is a station on the Tōkyū Ōimachi Line, fairly well known among railfans because of “door cuts”. This line is a supplementary line in the Tōkyū network, and was originally operated with 18 m cars in three-car (up until March 1965) and four-car (up until March 1974) formations. Back then, all doors on all cars could serve the station. After that, the line was upgraded to standard 20 m cars in four-car formations to help deal with increasing ridership, and trains were forced to use door cuts when stopped at the station. In recent years, there are now 20 m cars in five-car formations, meaning as many as two cars—at the Ōimachi end of the station—were forced to keep their doors closed at the station.

After finally being able to acquire the necessary land, they’ve now completed the platform extensions, and all doors began opening at the station yesterday (2013.02.24). The platform extension required them to relocate the Shimo-Shinmei No. 2 Crossing to secure enough space.

There are currently no plans for extensions at Kuhonbutsu, the other station on the line with door cuts.

Last day of door cuts (2013.02.22). A bit odd seeing the doors still closed even though the extended platform extension is already complete and the conductor is standing on it…

Tōkyō Metro to provide technical assistance to Hanoi Metro
http://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXNAS...3A220C1TJC000/

Quote:
 東京メトロはベトナムで都市鉄道の運行支援を始める。首都・ハノイ市が計画する鉄道網の運行管理や人材育成などを支援する現地法人を月内にも設立する。都市部に張り巡らせた路線を一元的に管理し、安全運行を実現する日本式のノウハウを提供する。人口減少に直面する国内の鉄道事業者は今後、成長鈍化が懸念される。東南アジアを中心に整備が進む海外鉄道事業への参画で収益基盤を多角化する。

 25日発表する。ハノイ市に設立する現地法人は東京メトロが約90%、東日本旅客鉄道(JR東日本)傘下で海外鉄道案件の現地調査を手掛ける日本コンサルタンツ(東京・千代田)が約10%出資。国際協力機構(JICA)が資金援助する。

 ハノイ市の都市鉄道の第1弾として、2015年春にも開業する予定の路線(南西部「2A号線」のカットリン―ハドン駅間)を含む合計3路線の運行が対象となる。東京メトロは10人程度を現地に派遣する。列車の運行効率化や設備保守、顧客サービスといった東京メトロが培った鉄道運営の総合的なノウハウを供与する。

 ハノイの都市鉄道は20年ごろまでに5路線を開業、将来は計8路線を走らせる計画。建設は日本のほか、中国、フランスの3カ国が支援するため、各路線で架線や信号システムなどの仕様が異なる。東京メトロは都内に9路線を持ち、総営業距離は200キロメートル弱に達する。線路の幅が異なる路線など、都市部に集中する鉄道網の運営・管理には豊富な実績がある。

 世界の鉄道市場は20年まで年2.5%程度のペースで成長し、同年には22兆円規模に達する見通しだ。特にアジア(オセアニアを含む)と西欧がそれぞれ、6兆円超と二大市場になる。

 日本の鉄道事業者は海外鉄道プロジェクトへの参画に照準を定める。東海旅客鉄道(JR東海)は米国で超電導リニアモーターカーの受注を目指しており、22日の日米首脳会談で安倍晋三首相は技術供与を提案した。
Tōkyō Metro will establish a local affiliate to support railway operations and personnel development for the metro network being planned for Vietnam’s capital city, Hanoi. The local affiliate will be jointly owned by Tōkyō Metro (90% ownership) and Japan International Consultants for Transportation (JIC) (10% ownership) the latter being a JV under JR East that also includes Tōkyō Metro and several other Japanese railway operators. JICA will provide funding support.

The work involves sending about 10 staff to Hanoi to provide assistance on train operations, facilities maintenance, and customer service. The work will cover a total of three lines in the metro network, including the 2A Line between Cat Linh and Ha Dong scheduled to open in spring 2015.

Yeah, I remember looking crazy when I had to go to Kuhonbutsu last year and was on the wrong car!! I didn't know they did that over there either since I'm usually on the expresses that pass that station.

Tokyu to introduce LED interior lit trains from 2013

Quote:
http://news.mynavi.jp/news/2013/02/23/017/index.html

東急電鉄はこのほど、2013年度以降に導入する新造車両すべてにLED車内照明を導入すると発表した。2013年度に導入される5050系新造車両が先駆けとなる。


東急電鉄5050系

LED車内照明の導入で、従来の蛍光灯照明と同等の明るさを保ちつつ、消費電力量を約40%削減。照明の長寿命化により廃棄物が削減され、環境負荷の低減につながるとしている。

同社では2011年11月より、大井町線6000系車両1編成(6両編成)の各車両に明るさや色調、デザインなどが異なる車内照明を試験導入しており、これによって得られた省電力効果の検証結果と利用者の意見を反映させながら本格導入を進めていく。今後は新造車両に加え、既存車両にもLED車内照明の導入を積極的に進めていく考えだ。
This article basically says all new train cars for Tokyu will run LED interior lighting for a power savings of 40% over fluorescent lights. One 6000 series train on the Oimachi line is running all LEDs now as a test starting from November 2011 and results proved favorable. While it's not known if refurbished stock will be retrofitted, new cars from J-TRAC (old Tokyu Car Co.) will be first in line to be fitted, reflecting the trend amongst train manufacturers and transport companies these days. This should include the last few 5050-4000 series trains we're expecting on the Toyoko line as well; 4109F is the last set seen testing on the line in full 10 car consist, but I'm told there should be another 6 trains delivered after the initial 3/16 thru-running opening.

Here's Tokyu 6104F on the Oimachi line with those LED lights.

One more thing to pass along... Tanmachi station is getting platform extensions...and rapidly at that.


This station is a local only station about 1km northwest of and one stop from Yokohama station on the Toyoko line. Local trains only run in 8 car sets starting next month, so there's no reason for this...

But I've been thinking when they open the Sotetsu Thru Line between Hiyoshi and Nishiya stations, they will need to upgrade the Meguro line to 8 cars (and it will be a simple matter of turning on the platform doors that are already there) and also go and lengthen the remaining platforms on the Toyoko line to 10 car consists. Currently, all Sotetsu line train consists are 8 or 10 cars. Perhaps this is the beginning of that campaign??

Excellent images! Those make me even more excited... if the Fukutoshin line is extended to both Saitama and Yokohama, I wonder how high the ridership will be on all the five lines. And will the statistics be different for each of the services and may not reflect those who continue beyond the Fukutoshin line...?

Himeji Station tenant building and station plaza improvements to open on 2013.04.30
http://www.kobe-np.co.jp/news/keizai...05768507.shtml

Quote:
 JR西日本の子会社「神戸SC開発」(神戸市)は25日、姫路駅北側に建設中の新駅10+ 件ビル「ピオレ姫路」を4月30日にオープンすると発表した。生活雑貨「東急ハンズ」を核店舗に、兵庫県内初出店の29店舗を含む計119店が入る。

 同駅10+ 件構内で2008年に開業した商業施設「プリエ」は4月30日、ピオレに統合。駅10+ 件ビルなどのプロジェクトは1973年、高架化基本構想が発表されてから約40年で完了する。

 ピオレは2011年12月に着工。地上6階、地下1階で、店舗面積は計約1万3千平方メートル。20~30代の女性をターゲットにユニクロをはじめとする衣料や化粧品、飲食店などを幅広くそろえた。屋上には、多目的ステージや芝生広場を設ける。

 ビル北面の白いパネル(高さ約22メートル、幅約102メートル)には夜間、発光ダイオードの間接照明で白鷺や水紋などを映し出す。北西角はガラス張りで、正面に姫路城を望めるようにした。

 同ビル北隣で、同市が整備中の地下庭園「サンクンガーデン」も4月30日にオープンする。(山路 進)
Good news for Himeji, as JR West announced that they will open the new station tenant building (Piole Himeji, 119 stores)—anchor tenant is Tōkyū Hands—and the “sunken garden” station plaza on April 30. Construction work behan in 2011.12 on the 13,000 sq m (retail area), which will have 6 aboveground floors, one underground level, a rooftop stage and garden, and an observation deck on the northwest corner with views down Himeji’s main boulevard towards Himeji Castle. Plie Himeji, the other tenant building at the JR station that opened in 2008, will be consolidated with the new building the same day of the opening.

This will mark the completion of all the Himeji Station improvements by JR West, a project that began in the planning stages way back in 1973 and included continuous grade-separation (elevation) of the JR tracks. Coupled with the partially completed and ongoing grade-separation of the San’yō Electric Railway Main Line, Himeji City has made some pretty big progress in terms of rail infrastructure and urban planning improvements. It’s not a big city in comparison to Kōbe, but it’s the center of western Hyōgo Prefecture and a popular day-trip for local and overseas tourists, so it’s good to see all the puzzle pieces finally falling into place.

Toyama tram extension will open in March 2015
http://www.tulip-tv.co.jp/news/detai...20130225172133

Quote:
 富山地方鉄道の市内軌道線と富山ライトレールを接続する路面電車の南北接続で、市内軌道線を新幹線の高架下に新設する停留所まで延伸する区間が2015年3月の開業予定であることがわかりました。

 事業計画では、今年11月に富山地鉄の市内軌道線を新幹線の高架下まで引き込む工事に着手し、2015年3月の開業を目指します。

 延伸区間の開業にともない、新幹線の高架下に新設される停留所が、市内軌道線の発着駅となりすべての系統の車両が乗り入れる計画です。

 富山市は、今回の延伸により市内電車の利用者が1日あたり710人増加し、1万2000人あまりが利用するとの需要予測を示しました。

また、富山ライトレールを新幹線の高架下まで引き込み、最終的に市内軌道線と富山ライトレールが接続するのは2018年ごろの予定です。
Following up on this story, they’ve now announced that the extension directly into the station (underneath the elevated Shinkansen / zairaisen tracks) will open for revenue service in March 2015. It’s only 100-150 m or so distance, but daily ridership on Toyama Chihō Railroad’s “city” lines is expected to increase by about 710 passengers from the current (FY2011) ridership of 11,500. All three of the “city” routes—to Minami-Toyama, to Daigaku-mae, and the City Loop—will serve the extension. The connection with the Toyama Light Rail to the north of the station will come in 2018, increasing ridership by another 100 passengers.

Article has a video report. There’s also another video here:

Passengers not happy about Shibuya transfer with new underground Tōyoko Line alignment
http://www.j-cast.com/2013/02/25166860.html

Quote:
東京・渋谷駅と神奈川・横浜駅を結ぶ東急東横線と、埼玉・和光市駅と渋谷駅を結ぶ東京メトロ副都心線が直通運転を開始する2013年3月16日まで、残り3週間を切った。

横浜方面から埼玉の西南部まで一つの路線として結ばれるため、交通の利便性が向上するとうたわれている。しかしこの直通運転には、いまだに反対も多い。

「地下5階から地上3階なんてやってらんないからな」

現在東横線が直通運転を行っている横浜高速鉄道みなとみらい線、また副都心線が直通運転を行っている西武有楽町線・池袋線と東武東上線とも引き続き直通運転を行うため、元町・中華街駅(神奈川)から森林公園駅または飯能駅(いずれも埼玉)まで1本で行けるようになる。通勤・通学やショッピング、レジャーの際の利便性が向上するという触れ込みだ。

これにともない、現在地上2階にある東横線の改札口は現在の副都心線改札口と同じ地下3階に。ホームも現在の副都心線と同じく地下5階となる。また、北千住駅から中目黒駅を結ぶ東京メトロ日比谷線と東横線の直通運転が終了する。

東横線と副都心線の直通運転には根強い反対意見がある。2ちゃんねるでは議論するスレッドがいくつか立てられ、「新宿や池袋なんかに直通するより銀座のほうにいくほうが価値があるきがする」など日比谷線との直通終了への不満の声がある。「朝のラッシュ時に渋谷始発なくなったら横浜まで立ちっぱなしで辛いんだけど」など渋谷駅件から座れなくなって残念という声などもあるが、一番多いのは「副都心線のとこに移ると井の頭、銀座、JR、全部乗り換え面倒になるやんか」「地下5階から地上に出るのに1.5駅分くらいかかるぞ」と、ホームが移動することへの不満意見だ。

「これ東横渋谷乗換銀座線組がぜんぶ半蔵門線に移る 地下5階から地上3階なんてやってらんないからな 半蔵門線渋谷表参道は地獄になるぜえ」と、東横線から地上3階の東京メトロ銀座線に乗り換えていた乗客が地下3階の半蔵門線乗り換えを利用するようになり、半蔵門線が大混雑するだろうという見方もある。
The through-service with the Fukutoshin Line requires that the Tōyoko Line’s Shibuya terminal be relocated from 2F to B5F, which makes it substantially more of a hassle to transfer to / from the Ginza Line on 3F. In the end, it’s highly likely that most of these passengers will transfer at Shibuya to the Den’en Toshi Line / Hanzōmon Line on B3F, then transfer a second time cross-platform at Omotesandō. With the Hanzōmon Line’s Shibuya Station being as busy as it is (with a narrow platform to boot), this may potentially cause some platform congestion and dwell time issues. Will be interesting to see how this plays out… When you get to rail networks the size of Tōkyō, it can be difficult to predict people’s behavior. Perhaps we may see some people taking alternative routes like the Marunouchi Line from Shinjuku Sanchōme (Fukutoshin Line is B3F, Marunouchi Line is B2F).

If that's the case, where do you think would be a best station to transfer to and from the Ginza Line if it means that passengers will need to climb up and down seven floors to transfer between trains at Shibuya Station? I mean, the Hanzomon Line also does Shibuya to Omote-Sando, and that the two lines run nearly parallel to each other until, say, Akasaka-Mitsuke.

Interesting development. Very small space to work with there- Tanmachi is a station of some note, it has compound curved track so the geometry is more interesting than your run-of-the-mill underground station.

Well, the beauty of a system as dense as in Tokyo is that there is typically an alternative route (or two) that can be utilized for the commute, with the associated permutations that arise from additional transfer points. How the flow will change will be an interesting phenomenon indeed.

Oh please, these folks up here complain about everything!
Never mind the fact that they'll be getting 2 extra cars on their trains and more trains per hour overall... They probably don't even realize that Shibuya station is going to be a total mess anyway in 6 months when demolition gets underway and EVERYONE will have a hard time transferring from/to every line EXCEPT the ones in the basement... They're pouring concrete into the forms for the new Ginza Line viaduct right this minute, so they very station they want to get to will change in a year or two anyway. It will be directly over Meiji-Dori instead of "inside" the Tokyu Department Store complex. Also it will be served by high speed escalators and an elevator that's already there in the Hikarie building across the street.

I'm just mad because what they're complaining about is exactly how I transfer twice I day for the last 2 years... bunch of babies!

Never mind the fact that they'll be getting 2 extra cars on their trains and more trains per hour overall... They probably don't even realize that Shibuya station is going to be a total mess anyway in 6 months when demolition gets underway and EVERYONE will have a hard time transferring from/to every line EXCEPT the ones in the basement... They're pouring concrete into the forms for the new Ginza Line viaduct right this minute, so they very station they want to get to will change in a year or two anyway. It will be directly over Meiji-Dori instead of "inside" the Tokyu Department Store complex. Also it will be served by high speed escalators and an elevator that's already there in the Hikarie building across the street.

I'm just mad because what they're complaining about is exactly how I transfer twice I day for the last 2 years... bunch of babies!
Really? So tell me: what's a best way to transfer to and from the Ginza Line if you come in from Yokohama, if I want to bypass Shibuya altogether?

They can transfer without either bypassing Shibuya or climb up stairs. They can simply take the Hanzomon line and exchage at the next stop, Omotesando which shares an island platform in which Ginza line stops on the right and Hanzomon stops on the left.

All right. How about for those who want to use the Tokyu Toyoko Line that will end up becoming the Fukutoshin Line?

The same since Hanzomon line starts from Shibuya through section from Tokyu Denentoshi line which is located above the Fukutoshin line.

Oh ok. So for Yokohama residents who want to go to Ginza and Ueno will need to use the Tokyu Den-en-Toshi Line that will bring passengers to Omote-Sando and change for the Ginza Line there, correct? Same thing for the return trip…
