A Huge Project Linking the Entire Country

The Honshu-Shikoku Bridge Project

This massive project to link the islands of Honshu and Shikoku (separated by the Seto Inland Sea) by rail and road via three routes (Kobe to Naruto, Kojima to Sakaide, and Onomichi to Imabari) incorporating a wide range of bridges with some of the world’s longest spans, exemplifies Japan’s policy of “well-balanced land development,” which was undertaken over a period of some 50 years during the second half of the 20th century. The undertaking led to huge changes in the area’s economic and living environments. And this advanced bridge-building technology, developed to surmount severe natural conditions, has in turn led to a variety of projects all over the world.
