China-built Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway begins operation

Indonesia’s first high-speed railway (HSR), connecting Jakarta and Bandung, has commenced commercial operations. This marks a significant milestone for Indonesia’s modern transportation system and signifies an achievement under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) between China and Indonesia. The HSR covers 142.3 kilometers and can reach a top speed of 350 kilometers per hour, reducing travel time between the two cities from 3.5 hours to just 46 minutes. The project, fully utilizing Chinese railway technology, is operated by a joint venture consortium between Indonesian and Chinese firms. The HSR is equipped with advanced features like intelligent sensing technology and an earthquake early warning system. It’s designed to adapt to the local tropical environment and culture. Both the exterior and interior of the trains showcase distinctive Indonesian characteristics.
