New tunnel opens to traffic

8 July 2014

The Ogurasan Tunnel, a brand-new 2,100m tunnel, was officially opened to traffic on 28 June.

It forms part of a road link between the Sagamihara-Aikawa Highway Interchange in the Kanagawa Prefecture and Tokyo's Takao-san Interchange.

It will cut travel times between the two regions and form the basis of an ongoing autonomous driving test zone near Nissan's Global Headquarters, according to Kanagawa Governor Yuji Kuroiwa, who performed the inauguration ceremony.
