The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Niigata Prefecture, and each municipality in the prefecture aim to improve the scenery along the main roads and make them barrier-free.Electrical wireWe are working on undergrounding (no utility poles by constructing a utility tunnel for electric wires). In Nagaoka City, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism is on National Highway No. 8, Kanda and Hasugata along the Nagaoka Bypass, and the prefecture and Nagaoka City are around Nagaoka Station. In addition to the central part of the river east area, in the suburbsNagaoka New TownWe are implementing a utility pole-free project in some of the areas.

In Nagaoka city2004 (16)Niigata Chuetsu EarthquakeWhen,2007 (19)Niigata Chuetsu-oki EarthquakeThe planned undergrounding area was damaged, and it took time to relocate obstructive properties such as water pipes and sewer pipes due to undergrounding of electric wires in the existing sidewalk, so the utility pole elimination rate temporarily set the initial target value. It fell below.

Undergrounding of electric wires involves burying cables protected by earthquake-resistant resin pipes in a utility tunnel in the ground. In the event of a disaster, various risks due to the collapse of utility poles can be avoided, but the utility tunnel is temporarily damaged. If this happens, the restoration of lifelines such as power and communication may be significantly delayed. At the time of the Chuetsu earthquake, it took 7 to 10 days to restore electricity in areas where undergrounding was not carried out.

In this way, Nagaoka City is well-developed in terms of wide-area road traffic such as highways, but it is not always sufficiently developed in terms of daily road traffic. Due to the geographical condition that the east and west of the city area are divided by the Shinano River, traffic congestion is becoming chronic at each bridge, and these are major issues in improving the base of Nagaoka City. In addition, there are still many problems related to traffic safety and living safety in the location of snowy areas, such as delays in the development of bicycle pedestrian roads and scattered narrow roads. In addition to strengthening the development of a "ladder-type wide-area road network" that resembles the Shinano River bridge and main roads in the city area as ladders, the prefecture and Nagaoka City are working to improve the traffic environment for living roads.

In addition, the national road, prefectural road, and city road in Nagaoka City are combined.Road improvement rate[Note 4]62.9%, road pavement rate 64.7%(As of April 2006, 4, from Nagaoka City materials)[Source required].
