About judgment about Hokkaido Shinkansen parallel conventional line
The Hakodate Main Line, which has contributed to the development of Hokkaido, has a history of pioneering Niseko Town and the history of life in the town. I think that there are many people who think that way.
However, considering the economic situation and the possibility of alternative transportation in a comprehensive manner today, we believe that it is impossible to impose a large burden on future generations any more.
Based on these circumstances, we have determined that it is unavoidable to abolish parallel conventional lines and switch to bus conversion, so I would like to report this.
