Construction of Safe Roads in Various Environmental and Geographical Conditions
Our Advantage in Construction

Road Construction at Difficult Conditions
Due to Japan’s mountainous geographical conditions, our highway systems include many bridge and tunnel structures. In addition, the company is required to develop advanced technology to improve soft soil conditions or construct deep level structural foundations, in order to conquer the disadvantage of Japan’s geological conditions and soil conditions affected by volcanic activities.

Disaster-Resistant Roadway Network
Natural disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes are frequently threatening Japan’s infrastructures. To cope with these environmental conditions, construction of disaster resistant roadway network is required. In order to tackle such difficult conditions, NEXCO-West carries out construction projects using excellent technological capabilities and proper construction management.

NEXCO-West is making efforts to reduce life-cycle costs by constructing high quality expressways with superior durability taking consideration of both economic and safety aspect.
