Recommended Posts

Recent broadcast on NHK general about the redevelopment of the Shibuya Station area, with a focus on the opening of the Saikyo Line platform adjacent to the Yamanote Line platform, and the movement of tracks as well as the railway bridge crossing the old Oyama Road leading to Dougenzaka and the Shibuya Scramble intersection. 1000 construction workers and specialists along with 100 vehicles were given 52 hours to do the task, while observing covid-19 countermeasures.  Everything had to be finished at the end of 52 hours and full restoration of Saikyo Line services. Everything was timed to the minute, with each person tasked with specific duties.  There was even a mock bridge set up off site to rehearse the move and set procedures.  Other parts of the documentary explain the redevelopment of the station area to improve passenger and pedestrian circulation and safety in the event of natural disasters, in coordination with four different railway companies.

Will be of limited applicability I fear, but if you have  somehow have access to Japanese NHK video-on-demand and are fluent (negative for me on both counts!) it looks like NHK recently aired a special documentary on the redevelopment work at Shibuya, which invetably includes all the work at the station(s).
