Traffic on Major Roads in Restricted Areas

Traffic on Major Roads in Restricted Areas_Figure

In Restricted Areas, transit had been restricted except for temporary entry of residents and transit based on the Special Transit Permission System.

As National Road 6 is a key major road for reconstruction and recovery of Fukushima Prefecture, after completion of decontamination and road repair work, special transit without carrying and presenting a pass came to be permitted for National Road 6 and Prefectural Road 36 on September 15, 2014, as a result of consultations with the relevant municipalities.

The Special Transit Permission System has also been applied to National Road 114 and Prefectural Road 35 based on consultations with the relevant local governments and organizations. From March 2020, motorcycles are also permitted to use some routes, such as National Road 6 and Prefectural Road 35. Furthermore, in association with the lifting of evacuation orders for the Specified Reconstruction and Revitalization Base Areas in Okuma Town in June 2022 and in Futaba Town in August 2022, the entirety of National Road 6 was reopened to foot and bicycle traffic. The most recent status of the application of the Special Transit Permission System and the results of dose surveys under the application of the system are published in the form of a notice issued by the Support Team for Residents Affected by Nuclear Incidents, Cabinet Office ( (in Japanese)).
