Jakarta-Surabaya railway to welcome brand new tracks

Published on : Tuesday, September 5, 2017

Jakarta-Surabaya-railThe government of Jakarta has thought about constructing new tracks for the medium-speed Jakarta-Surabaya railway connection, according to an official.


Zulfamendi who is the railway traffic director for the Transportation Ministry said that the new tracks would utilize the land owned by state-owned railway operator PT Kereta Apo Indonesia (KAI) and run parallel to the existing 700 kilometres of railway tracks in the northern coastal areas of Java.


The new tracks would minimize the travel time to about four hours, as per Zulfamendi who mentioned this on Monday in Jakarta, as reported by one of the local news media agencies.


He then went on to add that the journey would take about four hours and there would be no railway crossings since the rail tracks would have to be elevated to pass over the roadways.


But, he refused to stated the total investment that is required for this construction project.


The Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) in the past had estimated that if the project rejuvenated the existent tracks it would cost about Rp 81.2 trillion (US$6.10 billion).


And, the ministry official has not mentioned about any partnering company in the construction of these projects but it might be utilizing Japanese technology, as has been previously suggested by government officials.
