英語:“Work begins to relocate old train station building in Osaka Pref. in its entirety”

SAKAI, Osaka — Work began on Nov. 28 to relocate in its entirety the old Hamaderakoen Station building on the Nankai Main Line in this city’s Nishi Ward, which is a national registered tangible cultural property.

Built in 1907, the building will initially be used as a gallery and a cafe at the new site. After the Nankai Main Line is elevated, the building will be used as an entrance to a new station building, whose construction is scheduled to be completed around 2028.

The old station is a Western-style, single-story wooden building. It was designed by the office of renowned architect Kingo Tatsuno (1854-1919), who also designed the Tokyo Station building and Osaka City Central Public Hall. The old station building ceased being used in January 2016 and a temporary station structure is currently in use.

Relocating a building in its entirety is a traditional method to move old houses. The former office of the prime minister, which is now used as the official residence of the prime minister, was also moved in this way in 2003.

In the transportation technique, the old station building was detached from the basement and jacked up in advance. The building, which weighs approximately 130 metric tons, was placed on iron bars arranged on a track and relocated some 30 meters southwest on Nov. 28.

The building can be transported approximately 10 meters a day. The remainder of the work is scheduled for Dec. 1 and 18.

日本語:“南海本線・浜寺公園 明治の駅舎が動いた 曳家工事始まる”

 1907(明治40)年に建てられた国の登録有形文化財、南海本線・浜寺公園駅旧駅舎(堺市西区)をそのままの形で南西へ約30メートル移動する曳家(ひきや)工事が28日始まった。移設先でギャラリーやカフェなどとして使われ、南海本線の高架化後は新駅舎(2028年ごろ完成予定)のエントランスとして活用される。

 旧駅舎は木造平屋の洋風建築。東京駅や大阪市中央公会堂を手がけた建築家、辰野金吾の事務所が設計した。高架化工事のため昨年1月に営業を終了し、仮駅舎にバトンタッチしていた。

 曳家は古民家の移築などに用いられる工法で、03年には旧首相官邸(現公邸)でも実施された。事前に建物を基礎から切り離してジャッキで持ち上げ、この日は、レールの上に並べた複数の鉄棒「ころ」の上に計約130トンの旧駅舎を載せ、後ろから押した。

 移動は1日約10メートル。来月1日と18日の3回に分けて移動させる予定。
