Corporate Vision for International Cooperation


Honshu-Shikoku Bridge Expressway Company Limited (HSBE) makes use of its technology as a front runner of bridge engineering for overseas projects.


We had to overcome several technical issues to construct world-class long-span bridges while we kept the safety of the construction work in Seto Inland Sea, deeper sea and faster tidal current, where many vessels were navigating. Japan is prone to be hit by large earthquakes and big typhoons. To ensure the safety of long-span bridges against large earthquakes or strong wind, therefore, is very essential. We had researched and developed seismic design method and wind resistant design system. Furthermore, we have been trying to establish maintenance techniques according to the concept of preventive maintenance to keep long-span bridges in sound conditions for a very long time.


We hope that HSBE can contribute to overseas projects by utilizing our experiences on the construction and management for long-span bridges.


We can, moreover, contribute to the bringing-up bridge engineers, and make efforts to collect and send the information on bridge engineering as a front runner of bridge engineering.
