There are many ways to build a subway. Here we will show you how to lay these metro tunnels.

■ Various ways to make a subway
During the construction of the metro, we will choose the most suitable construction method, taking into account the natural conditions of the construction site, the conditions in the surrounding area and the construction conditions.
Below is an introduction to the construction method and a map of the location of the construction method.

The ancient capital of Kyoto, with a population of 1.5 million, is the sixth largest city in Japan. The Kyoto subway consists of 2 lines that run almost entirely underground, the Karasuma line (1 station - Takeda - above the ground) runs from north to south, mainly under the Karasumaru road, and the Tozai line runs from west to east and then turns South. ... The network uses 1435 mm gauge, 1500 V overhead catenary and trains of 6 cars that travel at a maximum speed of 90 km / h. Most stations have central platforms (175 m), while stations on the Tozai line have screen doors.

The Kyoto Subway is operated by the Kyoto City Transportation Bureau.
