The JR Yamanote Line and the JR Keihin-Tohoku Line, two major train lines serving the Tokyo area, will be temporarily suspended on November 16, 2019, due to construction work at the new Takanawa Gateway Station, which will open in early 2020.
The Yamanote Line trains will not stop in the Osaki - Tokyo - Ueno station interval, while the Keihin-Tohoku Line trains will not stop between Shinagawa Station and Tamachi Station.
This partial shut down of operations will last from the first hours of the morning until 16:00. All trains will gradually resume operation after 16:00.
To compensate for this partial shut down of operation, JR EAST will increase the number of trains on the Ueno-Tokyo Line, Saikyo Line, and Rinkai Line.
If you're heading to a destination between Osaki - Tokyo - Ueno or Shinagawa - Tamachi, please try to use alternative railway networks such as Tokyo Metro or Tokyo's local bus network. Also, make sure to depart a few minutes earlier than you would usually do.
