The problem
of the rapid transit railway construction
Taiwan Superexpress of Japan, the pending problem starts.
The Chinese rapid transit railway, too, is view.

The rapid transit railway construction in Indian Vietnam
which the expectations hang over in the future
Every country:
It understands the difficulty
of the introduction of the rapid transit railway technology once more.
Japan has confidence and should make efforts
toward the guide and the communication of the technology.

When trying to make run railroad vehicles which reaches equal to or more than 200 km per hour, too, in the Asian countries of the infrastructure building which are in the development even if it says force rapid transit railway, there are many, too, problems.

First, there is construction of the orbit facilities ( the viaduct or the mound ) which are born by the high-speed running of 500 - 700 tons of body weight, 200 km per hour.

As for the orbit facilities of the Superexpress between Tokyo-Shin-Osaka which relevant authorities adopted at first, the ballast method by the mound was the great part.

It will have no choice but to choose from the technological standard at the time of the our country's conditions where being earthquake-resistant is needed about this, too, as the half permanent orbit facilities.

Recently, the elevating structure type of the Slavic-method is mainstream from the handiness of the maintenance and the necessity of the high-speed running.

It is the Superexpress of day, France ( TGV ) and Germany ( ICE ) every country that, at present, is competing keenly in the order competition of the rapid transit railway in the Asia.

When adopting car of TGV ( France ) so on which is different from the country, goes to existing railway system and runs on the flat prairie in the Europe, in the Asia which was wealthy in the heave, only in the cost performance, it bumps against the unexpected fault which can not be taken account of.

The thing was pointed out by the part, the experts. It is technological standard to the building in addition to it, and the maintenance and management, the accumulation of the data and so on.

This time, it is TGV in France where Korea received orders but vehicles becomes an unexpected situation when it doesn't have the technology and the experience of the orbit basis to support it by even if it supposes that it was made in France and that it was possible to run.

The first article of the description of the ( these columns was at the time of 1996 but not anyway describing but that the problem which expected but much exceeds expectation more generated these cases at the time of ーー such as the crack of vehicles about the test transit-time of the ones and TGV such as the elevating structure about the early stages of the Korean rapid transit railway which are made from the building flaw of the earthwork, made by French TGV after that are fresh in the memory, too.

As for the operation status about " Korea KTX " after that and so on, refer to " the operation status of the Korean rapid transit railway ( KTX ) ".

In the future, in the Asian countries, the introduction of the rapid transit railway ( and the inter-city traffic ) is proceeded with but order which included orbit facilities ( the infrastructure ), too, as the direction of one that the country overcomes competition with European Union ( France and Germany ) will become valid.

Specifically, isn't the technical assistance which is necessary for the safety of the high-speed running such as Taiwan ( it fixes as the Superexpress method of Japan finally ), the soil erosion which is due to the hot heavy rain more than Korea such as China ( the rapid transit railway of day's, France's and Germany's being pat is a proposal at present ), the existence of the tunnel in the mountainous region demanded?

 ≪韓国≫ 韓国鉄道公社は、高速鉄道「KTX」の新車両の欠陥で故障が相次ぎ、利用者からの信頼が傷ついたとして、車両メーカーの現代ロテムを相手に損害賠償を求める訴訟を起こす方針を明らかにした。新型車両「山川」は2010年3月の導入後、50件以上の故障が発生。列車遅延で利用者に返還した運賃や人件費など2億8000万ウオン(約2000万円)の支払い要求を検討している。−−(出所:「日本経済新聞」、2011年8月12日)

 ≪中国≫ 中国国務院(政府)は温家宝首相の主宰で常務会議を開き、2011年7月に 江省温州市で起きた高速鉄道の列車衝突事故を受けた安全性向上策を決めた。それによると、@同鉄道の運行速度を引き下げ、A新路線の建設認可を当面、凍結するーーなど。鉄道省は9月1日にもダイヤ改正する方向で準備に入った。現計画では、2015年までに総延長を現在の約2倍の1万6000kmに延長する構想だが、総延長が短縮する可能性もある。−−(出所:「日本経済新聞」、2011年8月11日)

 【その後の経過(著者一言)】 2002年当時から、このアジア地域における高速鉄道の導入計画の是非を問うてきたが、ここにきてその「結論」が出たようである。ここまで、長い期間、当サイトを通じて、忠告・警告してきたことが実を結んだ思いである。と同時に、高速鉄道技術を「一朝一夕」に導入することが如何に難しいことであるかを、韓国・中国を始めとする各国に、この度、十二分に理解されたことはわが国、高速鉄道技術の優秀さならびに堅実さが、明確に示されたという点でも、喜ばしいことである。
