- Osaka Higashi Line
The Osaka Higashi Line (おおさか東線 Ōsaka-Higashi-sen ) is a railway line operated by the West Japan Railway Company (JR West). Before being named on August 23, 2007, the line was constructed with the tentative name "Osaka Outer Loop Line (大阪外環状線 Ōsaka-soto-kanjōsen )". The line will connect Shin-Osaka Station in northern Osaka with Kyūhōji Station in Yao, forming an arc around the eastern suburbs of the city, but currently only the southern half of the line, between Hanaten and Kyūhōji, is in operation.
The southern part opened on March 15, 2008. But because of problems with the illegal occupation of a site, the northern part has not started construction yet. The optimistic opening date of this until Fiscal 2018.
The line is constructed and owned by the Osaka Soto-Kanjo Railway Co., Ltd. (大阪外環状鉄道株式会社 Ōsaka Sotokanjō Tetsudō Kabushiki Kaisha ) as a Category-3 railway business under the Railway Business Act of Japan. JR West and JR Freight operate trains as Category-2 railway business.
