May 6, 2020

The Japanese government has recently decided to extend the State of Emergency related to the new coronavirus until May 31, 2019.

Given the long-term effects of the new coronavirus infection, we will continue to strengthen and implement infection prevention measures with the life and safety of employees and workers as the top priority. We have also decided that it is also important to proceed with construction work to maintain economic activities, including protecting the employment of those in the construction industry.

From May 7, after consultation with all relevant parties, we will sequence resuming construction work at the sites where the management system in place meets the guidelines of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism and the safety rules set by Shimizu Corporation.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
