TOKYO -- The Japanese government is set to push forward an urban development scheme for Vladivostok in Russia's Far East, using the nation's corporate technologies as part of the two countries' economic partnership plan.

The ideas include introducing a Japanese intelligent traffic signal system that automatically adjusts signal timing based on traffic volume to reduce congestion, and a technology to fix aging sewer pipes without the need for excavation.
