TOKYO—Central Japan Railway Co. plans to provide Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp. with technology for the running of its bullet train operations, including earthquake response measures, it was reported Saturday.

The companies will sign a contract within several months, Kyodo News said, quoting sources close to the matter.

Central Japan Railway is considering giving the Taiwanese firm its know-how on disaster control as well as maintenance and inspection of train cars, tracks and signals, Kyodo said.

Japanese train firms, facing the risk of massive earthquakes, have introduced cutting-edge systems to automatically control operations in case of major jolts.

It will be the first time for the Japanese company to strike such a deal with a railway company overseas, it said.

Taiwan has been using bullet trains based on a Japanese model, marking Japan’s first successful export of its high-speed trains.

    pwede to sa pinas. its time for pinoys to experience advancement in everyday technology. regarding infra, it is still possible since pinoys know how to respect infrastructures that are managed “properly”. look at our expressways. only a few dare violate/loot it since they know these companies means business. nuisances stop messing at them. ang tanong lang, kaya kaya natin ang pamasahe dito? these are high-performance, cutting-edge technology that comes with a steep price..

      pwede naman, kaso napaka-radical na changes ang kailangan:

      palayasin ang squatters
      uproot those illegal structures/massasagasaan
      many CCTVs (alam mo naman pinoy, kapag walang nakabantay, hayyy)

      But funds again.
