The National Police Agency unveiled a plan Thursday to ban road traffic on a total of 52 expressway, highway and other routes if a 7.0-magnitude earthquake strikes Tokyo and its vicinity.

Restricting road traffic would secure the passage of vehicles operated by police forces, fire departments and the Self-Defense Forces, as well as vehicles carrying relief goods or personnel, according to the agency’s plan.
