14 October 2022 13:55 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian government on Friday claims that the Jakarta - Bandung high-speed railway project (KCJB) is currently at 88.8 percent completion, as the project only leaves a number of facilities to build. 

"As for infrastructure readiness, the installation of railroads from Bandung to Jakarta is currently underway," said president director of state railway operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI), Didiek Hartantyo, in a written statement on Friday, October 14.

He added that his office is currently completing the installation of the box girders for the construction of the subgrade. Hartantyo said the Overhead Catenary System (OCS) electrical equipment has been installed.

"The presence of KCJB is not only a new alternative for transportation that connects the two regions, but also presents economic benefits for the areas it passes through," said Didiek.

KAI is also currently completing the Greater Jakarta LRT which will later be connected to KCJB in the Halim Perdanakusuma area. The Greater Jakarta LRT will also be integrated with various other transportation modes such as Commuter lines and buses to maintain interconnectivity.

KAI pledged to prioritize good corporate governance (GCG) in every process of the construction of the high-speed train project that underlines accountability. The Jakarta - Bandung high-speed railway project is scheduled to start operations in June of 2023.
