In Tokyo and in other large cities where the frequency of electric trains is high, work on the track has to be done at night after the passage of the last train and before the first train the next morning since the intervals between trains during the day is insufficient. Starting in 1978 the Japanese National Railways began using paved track on these lines to reduce maintenance requirements. With development of efficient construction equipment, it is planned to install 20 km of this asphalt-filled track structure annually.
