Well, Tokyu will introduce the new 3020 series on the Meguro Line and convert the six-car to eight-car trainsets in order to run through Sotetsu etc. in 2022.



Also this morning, Tobu will introduce the new 70090 series, a charge seating service on the Hibiya Line (and Tobu lines) by 2020.





And Tokyo Metro will introduce the new 17000 (FY 2020) and 18000 series (FY 2021) on the Fukutoshin and Hanzomon Line.

Very interesting development indeed. That would mean, however, that the Mita Line (operated by Toei) will have to do their station adjustments as well to account for train lengthening. And also, it will mean both Mita and Namboku Lines will have to discontinue their platform screen doors at all platforms temporarily to allow the train consist expansion from 6 cars to 8. It will indeed be fascinating to watch.


Every station on the Mita, Namboku, and Saitama Stadium (ex: SRR) and Meguro lines was built with extra space for 8 cars. You see this in the form of extra platform doors that don't ever open in many stations in fact.

In preparation for Sotetsu-JR through running to begin later this year, a Saikyo Line E233-7000 was spotted on the Tokaido Line:

It does make me wonder about capacity constraints though, will the Hinkaku Line be able to handle the additional traffic?

The plan is to have through running both to the Fukutoshin Line and the Nanboku Line. During the morning rush 10~14 through trains/hour off the Sotetsu link at Hiyoshi, and 4~6/hour off-peak. The proportion going to the Fukutoshin Line versus the Nanboku Line is still undetermined, as the problem is the Toyoko Line is running at capacity between Hiyoshi and Shibuya, with 24 trains/hour at the peak 8am hour. With those headways, you can't squeeze in additional trains off the Sotetsu Line without removing existing Toyoko Line services coming from Yokohama, which may prompt complaints from customers coming from that direction.
When Japan has that type of through running do the trains continuing on for longer distances still stop at all the inner stations?

^^ yes, these trains run as regular metro trains on the 'inner' metro lines, stopping at all stations along the route even when these trains continue as express trains on the suburban sections.

JR East has planned to reroute the Yamanote Line and the Keihin Tohoku line through the new Takanawa Gateway station on Saturday November 16.

http://tetsudo-shimbun.com/headline/entry-1838.html

Operations of the Yamanote line will be suspended between Ueno and Osaki on the 16th until 4 PM. The Keihin Tohuku Line will be suspended for the whole day between Tamachi and Shinagawa.

During this day the lines will be rerouted through the new station, there will also be a change to the platforms at Shinagawa station.
Nu
After the rerouting the trains will run through the new station without stopping before the new station opens next year.

If I remember correctly from when I took the Fukutoshin line there are express trains on that line through the Tokyo metro portion, so this is the unusual one of the bunch.

How are these works progressing? When are the new platforms scheduled to open to the public if they already haven't.


Also does anyone know a date for when the Yamanote line will become an island platform at Shibuya?


Cheers.


Back to Shibuya Station.

Service on the Shonan-Shinjuku line will be suspended between Shinjuku and Osaki this and next weekend. During these 2 closures the south bound line at Shibuya Station will be moved to the newly built tracks. The platforms will remain where they are for now.

The Yamanote Line will operate as normal during these 2 weekends.

There are some through limited express/express train that skip some station on Fukutoshin Line, Yurakucho Line, Asakusa Line, Shinjuku Line, Chiyoda Line, and Tozai Line.

Ok that makes sense. I was wondering since it seems like it would be slow to take a suburban train that went through the entire service pattern of a metro line before serving the outer suburban areas. I always thought of suburban rail as sort of a trade off in the sense that while there is usually lower frequency, it has much faster average speed due to there being greater space between stops. But if it's only some of the trips that continue on then the suburban service has has lower frequency than the regular metro but equally slow speed. Also, it makes me wonder how there is much capacity left over for the suburban commuters if the train is serving the inner stops since I would expect the train to be crowded with people taking shorter trips. So it makes sense if there are express trips although I would expect this would limit the service frequency of the metro line.
