Tokyo Metro Tozai Line Suspends Service Between Toyocho and Nishi-Kasai Stations Throughout the Weekend

Tozai Line

Tokyo Metro announces that the Tozai Line will be suspended between Toyocho and Nishi-Kasai stations from May 11 to 12, due to track switching work aimed at adding tracks and platforms at Minami-Sunamachi Station.

Trains will operate back and forth between Toyocho and Kasai stations. As the service between Nishi-Kasai and Kasai stations will also be running back and forth, passengers will need to change trains at Kasai Station. Alternate transportation will be provided on the full lines of Tokyo Metro, Toei Subway, Shin-Keisei Line, Toyo Rapid Railway, as well as selected lines and sections of JR, Keisei, Odakyu, Seibu, Rinkai Line, Hokusou Line, Tsukuba Express, and Tobu.

At Minami-Sunamachi Station, the construction to add tracks and platforms is aimed at increasing transport capacity. Once completed, the arrangement will allow trains to arrive and depart alternately in the same direction, aiming to prevent train delays and improve safety on platforms. This requires three phases of track switching work, with this occasion marking the first phase.
