Today's presentation is the following talks.
At first Hazawa Yokohama Kokudai Station opens this saturday.
Last Sunday I walked to Yokohama kokudai (YNU) to listen to the Sotetsu's project, that is, the mutual direct operation to Tokyo area by JR (from this Saturday) or by Tokyu railway company (from 2022).
Sotetsu is a local railway company which runs in the suburbs of the western areas of Yokohama City. But it doesn't go to the center of Tokyo.
Sotetsu fears lest the demand for its transportation should decrease in the future.
That's why Sotetsu thinks It is important for this company to become to compete with other companies, Tokyu line, Odakyu line, JR line, Keikyu line, Yokohama subway line which run in Tokyo area as of now.
Therefore Sotetsu is devoting itself to this project.
That expected effects are speed-up of the train and the development of Hazawa areas around the new station including YNUarea.
It will take 44 minutes from Futamatagawa to Shinjyuku this Saturday, and it will take 45 minutes from Yamato to Shibuya in 2022.
There are some weak points.
YNU is on the Tokiwadai hill.
The loads from the new station are steep and narrow and confusing.
These areas consist of residence and farm.
The way to develop the land is ambiguous.
