The Chita New Line (知多新線 Chita-shin-sen) is a Japanese railway line connecting Taketoyo with Minamichita within Aichi Prefecture. It is owned and operated by Nagoya Railroad (Meitetsu). The line features seven tunnels and a maximum grade of 3.4% (~1 in 29).


The Fuki - Kaminoma section opened in 1974, and the line was extended to Chita-Okuda the following year, Noma in 1976 and Utsumi in 1980. Currently single track, the formation and tunnels are built to accommodate future duplication of the line.

A proposed extension to Sankai has not been advanced to date.
