JR East is studying the possibility of adding a new station to the Yamanote line in Tokyo between Shinagawa and Tamachi stations—a distance of 2.2 kilometers. If the plan is realized, it will be the first new station on the line in about 40 years, JR East said in a statement.
The area is currently a JR train depot and storage yards. It has been designated as part of a major commercial redevelopment project starting in 2013, which the Tokyo metropolitan government hopes will attract more foreign enterprises to Tokyo due to its proximity to Haneda airport.
The Yamanote line loop currently has 29 stations. The last station to be added was Nishi-Nippori in 1971.
