The original Shin Kansen opened a decade ago has gained a worldwide reputation as a very useful transportation system. The construction of a national Shin Kansen network is in progress. There is a growing concern for the protection of the environment and the noise and vibration caused by the passing of Shin Kansen trains have become a very serious problem for people living along the track. To solve this problem, JNR in the past few years has devoted much time to research in methods for eliminating noise and vibration. This article describes the work done by JNR and the noise legislation which has been enacted.
