150m Pipe-Roofing Construction in Kyoto, Japan, 

Kyoto is one of the leading tourist destinations in Japan.

Chronic traffic congestion has become a problem due to the increase in tourists. Pipe roof construction of Iseki Polytech inc, was carried out for the purpose of alleviating traffic congestion and improving the local environment.

In this project, we carried out the construction of a 150m pipe roof, which was the longest in Japan at that time. By utilizing the pipe roof construction method, the construction was carried out without blocking the flow of traffic inside the ground intersection.

After the construction, the problem of traffic congestion was resolved and the surrounding environment was improved, contributing to the local community.
