The Chuo Shinkansen that uses liner motor trains is scheduled to begin operation in 2027. This new line that connects Toko and Nagoya shows Japan’s tireless efforts for faster railway network. For the opening of this line, redevelopment projects are in progress in major stations. Mitsubishi Real Estate plans to construct a multilevel bicycle parking tower in a new building before Nagoya station. The new parking lot will be a mechanical multilevel for 1,000 bicycles and will be opened in the fall of 2015.
Since the March 11 disaster last year, there is a growing concern about reviewing the means of commuting lately. Coupled with the health fad, this trend will supposedly increase the number of cyclers for commuting. Parking charge is not yet decided.
