Michi-no-Eki (Roadside Station) “Makuragano-Sato Koga”


Perspective drawing of the entire area

The work related to the michi-no-eki was jointly planned by the Koga Municipal Authority and the MLIT.
EJEC was responsible for not only the formulation of the basic policies but also the design of the facilities and surrounding area, formulation of an operation and management plan and supervision of the construction work for this development of a michi-no-eki in Koga City.
Apart from the design of roads in the vicinity of the michi-no-eki and nearby intersections, EJEC also design a bridge, car park, planting and landscaping at the premises of the michi-no-eki. For the layout of the michi-no-eki facilities and image of the buildings, EJEC consulted with the Michi-no-Eki Examination Committee and WG so that the local requirements and opinions were reflected on the design. A multi-purpose hall was planned as a facility providing community space for users of the michi-no-eki, especially local users, so that it could function as a core facility for the local community.
The work of EJEC was diverse, ranging from the design of facilities to a series of consultation meetings with the main operator of the local regeneration facilities to be developed as well as expected project participants. Through these meetings, EJEC proposed the zoning of local regeneration facilities and an event utilization method as part of the operation and management plan. We also also proposed operation under the designated management system, a business plan for profit-making facilities and other relevant matters. During construction supervision, meetings were held and on-site inspection was conducted to ensure that the construction work was completed without failure.
