Abstract

This report analyzes the construction of the nationwide high-speed (210 km/h) railway system in Japan - the Shinkansen Program. The Program was begun in 1969/70. Recently the Japanese government decided to speed up the Shinkansen Program and the first stage could possibly be completed during the next two to three years.

The systems analysis framework developed at IIASA has been applied for the evaluation of the Shinkansen Program. It includes transportation, railway, environmental, regional and national development subsystem analyses as well as an analysis of the main features of this program. Lessons from the Shinkansen Program Case Study are presented.
