COMPLAINTS AND CLAIMS ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS CAUSED BY EXPRESSWAYS AND THEIR TRAFFIC IN JAPAN. PROCEEDINGS, SIXTH CONFERENCE, ROAD ENGINEERING ASSOCIATION OF ASIA AND AUSTRALASIA, 4-10 MARCH 1990, KUALA LUMPUR, VOLUMES 1 TO 5 AND POST CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS

As of the end of March 1989, about 4,400-km-long network of the national expressway system is in operation in Japan and additional links longer than 2,000 km are under construction. Many complaints and claims on the environmental problems have been arising from the roadside residents along these expressways since the beginning of the 1970's. Some of them had developed to serious conflicts between Japan Highway Public Corporation (JHPC) and the residents. This paper summarizes and analyzes these complaints and claims which were collected through JHPC's maintenance and construction offices for several years. Some relationships between various issues of the complaints and claims and the features of roadways, traffic volume, and roadside land use conflicts and their processes to settlement were also studied and some suggestions are made in order to avoid the occurrence of such conflicts. For the covering entry of the conference see IRRD 823206. (Author/TRRL)
