Sinohydro Bureau 7 has finished the precasting work of reinforcing 15,390 concrete rail track slabs for Indonesia’s Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway.

Expected to cost nearly $6.07bn, the proposed Jakarta-Bandung rail project will connect the capital city of Jakarta and Bandung.

The 150km high-speed rail line is expected to shorten the rail journey between Jakarta and Bandung from more than three hours to about 40 minutes.

The approximate train speed has been estimated to be between 200km/h and 250km/h.

The Indonesian Government selected China over Japan for constructing the country’s first fast-train rail link.

The project is being executed by PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), a joint venture (JV) established in October 2015 between a consortium of Indonesian state-owned companies and China Railway International.

This project is being undertaken on a business-to-business basis, with Indonesia having a 60% interest in the JV while China has a 40% stake.

According to a statement released by PT KCIC, the precasting work has formed a solid groundwork for the laying of track slabs on the complete line.

The precasting work undertaken by Sinohydro consists of 51% of the total slab precasting works.

Later, the work will be taken over by Indonesian state-owned firm PT Wijaya Karya, an associate of the venture consortium.

The first track slab was manufactured in Sinohydro’s slab yard in January 2020.
