Kyushu Shinkansen is the 257 km high-speed railway between Fukuoka and Kagoshima and the main corridor in the Kyushu region.
The completion of this line has realized the through service with Sanyo Shinkansen, and connected the Kyushu and Kansai regions directly. This shortens travel time between these areas drastically. Furthermore, it creates an international network between Japan and eastern Asia, and promotes inter-regional cooperation and communication.
In addition, advanced construction methods were developed, including a bridge rotating system for a viaduct over an existing railway in urban areas. These methods could be utilized for future civil work projects.
This project has been highly-appraised for its contribution to the development of local communities and civil engineering technology.
