The western part of Adachi is poorly served by public transport and planning of the line started in 1985, with the initial intention of constructing a full-fledged subway. However, this was scrapped due to the high cost and projected low ridership, and a more cost-efficient AGT system was selected instead. Construction of the line started in 1997, and service commenced on March 30, 2008. The main contractor was the Tokyo Metropolitan Subway Construction Company, which also built the Toei Ōedo Line.
