Central Japan Railway (JR Tokai) has decided to locate stations for a magnetic-levitation (Maglev) line in Tokyo’s Shinagawa area and near Nagoya’s bullet train station.

TR Tokai has finalised station in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture, near Kofu, Yamanashi Prefecture, and near Nakatsugawa, Gifu Prefecture, along the 286km route.

JR Tokai is planning to spend ¥5.1tn ($63.5bn) to build a train line allowing trains to run at a speed of 500km per hour reducing travel time between Tokyo and Nagoya to 40 minutes, less than half that of current bullet trains.
The environmental assessment for the line will take about three years and work on the line will begin in April 2014.
