- Narita Rapid Railway
The nihongo|Narita New Rapid Line|成田新高速鉄道線|Narita Shin-Kōsoku Tetsudō-sen is a new rapid rail link under construction between
Tokyoand Narita Airport. The whole line will be operated by Keisei Electric Railway, while some parts of the line are operated by other companies as well. The new service and the trains that will operate them are marketed by Keisei as the nihongo|New Skyliner|新型スカイライナー|"shingata sukairainā", replacing the existing " Skyliner" service.
The project involves the refurbishment of 32.3 km of existing track on the
Hokusō Line, as well as the construction of 19.1 km of new track to Narita Airport, partly using disused rights-of-way originally planned for the cancelled Narita Shinkansenproject. The total cost, according to the Narita Rapid Rail Access website, is estimated to be ¥1.26 trillion, or about US$10.7 billion.

When complete in 2010 (planned), trains will also utilize the
Keisei Electric Railway's Main Line between Keisei Ueno and Keisei-Takasago. Trains are planned to run at a maximum speed of 160 km/h and could thus complete the run from Nippori to the airport in 36 minutes, 15 minutes faster than the current 51 minutes. Through services from Keisei-Takasago to Haneda Airportvia the Toei Asakusa Line, the Keikyu Main Lineand the Keikyu Airport Lineare also planned, with the potential to connect the two airports around 65 minutes, as opposed to the current minimum of 106 minutes.

There are also plans to build a spur from the
Toei Asakusa Lineto Tokyo Station, opening a (potentially) faster route from Tokyo Station to the airport through the Keisei Oshiage Line.
