Traffic Service Suspension Eyed as Typhoon Approaches

   Tokyo, Oct. 10 (Jiji Press)--Airlines and railway companies in Japan said Thursday they will or may suspend part of their services Saturday and Sunday as a super typhoon is approaching the country, inconveniencing travelers on the three-day weekend through Monday, a national holiday.
   East Japan Railway Co. <9020>, or JR East, may halt services on conventional lines in the greater Tokyo area and Shinkansen bullet train lines on the two days. The company is expected to announce detailed plans on Friday morning.
   In the Tokyo metropolitan area, Tokyu Corp. <9005> and Odakyu Electric Railway Co. <9007> are also expected to conduct scheduled suspensions of their train services.
   Central Japan Railway Co. <9022>, or JR Tokai, plans to reduce or cancel services on the Tokaido Shinkansen Line between Tokyo and Shin-Osaka stations from shortly before noon Saturday (3 a.m. GMT).
   For Sunday, JR Tokai plans to resume the bullet train operations as soon as safety is confirmed. Still, it may reduce or suspend services for the day, depending on the situation, company officials said.
