Indonesian Prez inspects Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway

Jakarta, Jan 18 (TIWN) Indonesian President Joko Widodo visited the construction site of the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway (HSR) No. 2 Tunnel to inspect the construction progress.

Widodo said the construction of the Jakarta-Bandung HSR is generally progressing smoothly regardless of difficulties such as the complex geological conditions and the pandemic, and it is hoped that the whole project will be put into operation in June 2023.  He hopes that all construction parties would jointly promote the construction with high quality, and show the achievements and cooperation between Indonesia and China to the world during the G20 summit later this year.  This is the second time that President Widodo has inspected the Jakarta-Bandung HSR. The inspected No 2 Tunnel is a single-hole and double-track tunnel with a total length of 1,052 meters, of which about 70 percent have been excavated.
