Yamanote Line Platform Doors: Stations Scheduled to Complete Installation by FY2013

East Japan Railway Company

July 5, 2011

    East Japan Railway Company (JR East) has been pursuing an initiative to introduce platform doors to the Yamanote Line to prevent passenger falls and contact with moving trains on platforms. Based on our verification at the two stations where doors were first installed (Ebisu and Meguro stations), we will start full-scale installation this fiscal year. This is to announce stations where installation is scheduled to be complete by FY2013.

1.  Stations Scheduled to Complete Installation by FY2013
  Installation will be completed in the following order. Specific dates will be announced separately.
  FY2012: Osaki and Ikebukuro stations
  FY2013: Otsuka, Sugamo, Komagome, Shin-Okubo, Mejiro, Takadanobaba and Tamachi stations
2.  Installation plan for FY2014 and after
  Overall installation is estimated to be complete by the end of FY2017, except for four stations that are planned at this time to undergo large-scale improvements (Shimbashi, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Tokyo stations). However, JR East will continue to study ways to complete installation as early as possible.
