FY2011 Capital Investment Plan

East Japan Railway Company

July 28, 2011

This is to announce that East Japan Railway Company (JR East) has adopted its FY2011 capital investment plan.


Despite the impact of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and the difficult business environment, JR East, following its "JR East 2020 Vision — idomu (challenge) —," is committed to steadily continuing capital investment that will enhance safety, increase customer satisfaction and prepare the way for future growth.


Planned capital investment (non-consolidated) is ¥295 billion.



Stance on capital investment in light of Great Eastern Japan Earthquake

     
  We have set a capital investment amount that reflects reduced cash flow, given decreased revenue and increased costs for restoration work following the earthquake.
     
  Despite the difficult circumstances, our investment will emphasize enhanced safety and countermeasures to major earthquakes.
     
  Investment for future growth will be steady but guided by a process of "selecting and concentrating."
     
     

Major capital investments

     
  We will steadily implement safety measures, including: viaduct and building seismic reinforcement, installing platform doors on the Yamanote Line, preparing ATS-P and ATS-Ps (automatic train-stop systems), and measures against rail crossing accidents.
     
  We will introduce the high-speed E5 series Shinkansen train to the Tohoku Shinkansen and a new limited express train (the E657 series) to the Joban Line.
We will also replace trains on the Keiyo and Joban lines with new E233 series trains.
     
  We will continue to prepare the Tohoku Jukan Line and Shinagawa Station turnaround facilities and railyard.
     
  In addition to the already open Excel Minami (Mito Station South Exit) and E’site Takasaki, we will open ecute Akabane in its entirety.
We will also proceed with station renovation and rebuilding of the station building at Chiba Station, and will advance development plans for the JR Utsunomiya Hotel (provisional name), Kanda Manseibashi Building (provisional name), JR South Shinjuku Building (provisional name), JR Otsuka Station South Exit Building (provisional name), etc.
     
  We will increase the number of places where electronic money is used and further expand scenarios for using Suica.
