Elevated Road

 

Aiming to complete the project by the end of FY 2018, we are doing construction work to elevate one of the prefectural roads by about six meters, which runs about ten kilometers north to south along the coastal areas. We are doing so by utiliziing tsunami sediments and earthquake debris.

The road will act as an embankment protecting against tsunamis together with the coastal embankments and the coastal disaster prevention forests. We are expecting to significantly reduce the damage from floods even if a tsunami with the intensity of the Great East Japan Earthquake occurs.
