INDUSTRY co.idPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo inspected the Jakarta – Bandung High-Speed Train project, in Bekasi, West Java, Tuesday (18/5).

The first point is Casting Yard #1 in Cikarang Utara District, Bekasi Regency, which is the location of one of the supporting facilities for the production and distribution of box girders used as a compiler for the track structure for the high-speed train project. Afterwards, the President visited Tunnel #1 which is located at Km 5+500 Jakarta – Cikampek Toll Road.

“Today, I inspected the progress of the construction work of the Jakarta – Bandung High-Speed Train. To date, the construction progress has reached 73 percent,” said the President.

The President went on to say that in early 2022, the project will be ready to enter the preparation stage for operation.

“It is projected that by the end of 2022, the Jakarta – Bandung High-Speed Train can conduct a trial stage and will start operating soon after,” he said.

Once the high-speed train operates, it is expected to be integrated with existing transportation modes in capital Jakarta, such as the LRT (Light Rail Transit) and the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit).

“So there is an efficiency of time and speed. We hope this will boost the country’s competitiveness so we can compete with other countries,” said the President.

On that occasion, President Jokowi also emphasized the importance of transfer of technology during the construction of this project.

“We hope our human capital will be able to take advantage from the construction of the Jakarta – Bandung High-Speed Train. Later, when the project is extended to East Java provincial capital Surabaya, our human capital will be ready to lead the project using experiences they obtained from Jakarta – Bandung project,” he said.
