Re: Left Behind by the Nationís Largest Subway System

I've read about it - I meant legal means for NIMBYs to actually stop things. Since the government was building the airport, they had to humor the NIMBYs (there were elections after all, and the primary opposition to the airport were socialists). The roadblocks were either illegal (as in literally blocking the roads, murdering police) or easily resolved (farmer builds tower on his land to make runway useless, government takes land and demolishes tower). There were similar tense situations regarding the construction of the Musashino freight line and the Tohoku Shinkansen - in both cases a passenger (/ local) service was added to quell unrest. At the time those, too, were government initiatives.
