U.S. approves use of shinkansen system

Yomiuri reported that the U.S. Department of Transportation released safety guidelines on Tuesday concerning the planned construction of a bullet train system in Texas, saying that the release was a de facto endorsement of Central Japan Railway’s plan to export its shinkansen trains and operating system. The USG reportedly gave high marks to the fact that no fatal accidents involving technical glitches have ever occurred since the shinkansen service began decades ago. As the department is likely to officially approve Japan’s bullet train safety system in the summer, Texas Central Partners is eyeing starting construction by the end of this year of a high-speed train line connecting North Texas and Greater Houston in 90 minutes.
