Special development for easy transportation:

The development government of Tokyo set a special budget of 400 Billion Japanese yen which is round about 3.67 billion in USD. This huge amount was set to meet the cost of hosting such a great event. Japanese also set a plan to increase the opening of the capacity of their two major Airports, Haneda Airport and Narita International Airport. This development is for making the flight easy for the airspace limitations. Moreover, the government planned to link a new railway track to both airports. This new railway track also expands through Tokyo station and reduces the travel time to 18 minutes instead of 30 minutes and 36 minutes instead of 55 minutes from Tokyo to Haneda airport and Narita Airport respectively. This plan worth is 400 Billion yen. However, it will be fund by many private investors. Additionally, East Japan Railway Company itself planned for a new trackway near Tamachi to Haneda Airport.

 

There are also plans for more funds to complete the Central Circular Route, Ken-Ō Expressway and Tokyo Gaikan Expressway and for the renewing the all other major expressways in these areas. Moreover, the Japanese government is looking to extend the Yurikamome automated transit track from Toyosu station, the existing point, to the new point at Kachidoki Station that passes the area of the Olympics village. Luckily, Yurikamome will still not have a satisfactory capacity to serve such a huge event in Odaiba.
