Construction of China-funded railway in Indonesia seen completed in 2023 amid delays

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia expects its $6 billion high-speed railway project connecting its capital Jakarta to the city of Bandung to be completed about two years later than initially scheduled, a deputy minister said on Wednesday.

The project, part of Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) that is being built by a consortium of Chinese and Indonesian state companies, has faced labour challenges due to travel restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic.

The new timeline by Deputy State-Owned Enterprises Minister Kartika Wirjoatmodjo presented an even longer delay than previously anticipated. Officials previously expected a year delay from the 2021 target for operational debut due to the pandemic.

“The development has reached 56%,” Kartika told a virtual seminar.

“It is hoped to be completed at the end of 2022 or at the beginning of 2023,” the deputy minister said in an online seminar.

Drilling work has been completed for the longest tunnel for Indonesia’s Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway. The China Railway Engineering Group Ltd finished the 1,285-metre (4,215ft) long tunnel on November 15, 2020. The project to build Southeast Asia’s first high-speed railway is part of the Belt and Road Initiative, China’s plan for expanding global trade. Trains are expected to be running on the line by 2021.

China’s BRI and its High-Speed Railways to Nowhere

November 10, 2020

In 2015, Indonesia dramatically chose China over Japan for the construction a $5.5 billion, 150 kilometer high-speed rail line connecting Jakarta to Bandung, the provincial capital of West Java. It was expected the project would be finished within three years, and the deal was sweetened when China did not ask for any explicit guarantees from the Indonesian state.

The project has been plagued with land acquisition delays and, as of early 2020, was less than 50 percent complete, while the West Bandung Regent blamed construction for causing severe flooding earlier this year. One day trains will run on this line, cutting travel time between the two cities to about an hour. But when traffic is light you can already drive from Jakarta to Bandung in a little over two hours, which begs the question of whether all of this was worth it in the first place.

Railway developer PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), a joint venture between Indonesian and Chinese companies,  has announced that the construction of the widely anticipated Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway has reached 63.9 percent, amid delays due to the pandemic.  The company wrapped up the drilling of a tunnel, called Tunnel 1, which spans 1.8 kilometers and is located under the Jakarta-Cikampek toll road that connects Jakarta with Bekasi, West Java.

State-owned construction firm PT Wijaya Karya, which owns the majority of stake in Indonesian consortium PT Pilar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia, also stated that the project had fallen short of its 70 percent completion target for this year.

China-made steel rails go on voyage for Jakarta-Bandung high speed railway
Source: Global Times Published: 2020/11/29 12:43:40

https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1208353.shtml

China's high-speed railway exports ushered in a new business in addition to technical standards and contracted construction - as steel rails export heading for Indonesia's Jakarta-Bandung high speed railway (HSR) was on sea voyage, making the nation as one of the few countries in the world that can export long steel rails.

The first batch of steel rails, produced by Pangang Group Co based in Southwest China's Sichuan Province, were loaded on to a cruise tanker in Fangchenggang port, South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, and departed for Indonesia on Saturday, the People's Daily reported.

According to negotiations between China's railway authority and several companies including Pangang Group, the steel rail's transport plan was made as follows: the 100-meter long steel rails were first shipped to Fangchenggang port by rail, and then cut into 50 meter sections for shipment to Indonesia.

Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway 64% complete
23 December 2020 | By GCR Staff

https://www.globalconstructionreview.com/news/jakarta-bandung-high-speed-railway-64-complete/

Indonesia’s $6bn Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway was said to be 63.9% complete this month after its fifth tunnel, 1.88km in length, was bored through on 15 December, reports The Jakarta Post.

The 142.3km railway, financed by China and with construction led by China Railway Engineering Corporation, will carry people from the capital to Bandung in West Java province at 350km/h in around 40 minutes.

After a fierce bidding war for the project between China and Japan, which China won, construction began in 2016.

After a number of delays, including a stoppage owing to the coronavirus, the railway is scheduled to begin operating in the second half of 2021, the Post reported.

25 March 2021 (Last Updated March 25th, 2021 09:40)

https://www.railway-technology.com/news/sinohydro-concludes-track-slab-precasting/

Sinohydro Bureau 7 has finished the precasting work of reinforcing 15,390 concrete rail track slabs for Indonesia’s Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway.

Expected to cost nearly $6.07bn, the proposed Jakarta-Bandung rail project will connect the capital city of Jakarta and Bandung.

The project is being executed by PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), a joint venture (JV) established in October 2015 between a consortium of Indonesian state-owned companies and China Railway International.

This project is being undertaken on a business-to-business basis, with Indonesia having a 60% interest in the JV while China has a 40% stake.

According to a statement released by PT KCIC, the precasting work has formed a solid groundwork for the laying of track slabs on the complete line.

Indonesian companies ask China to up stake in high-speed rail project
By Reuters Staff

APRIL 15, 20213:41 AM

https://www.reuters.com/article/indonesia-railway-idUSL4N2M80V7

JAKARTA, April 15 (Reuters) - Indonesian state companies building a Chinese-funded high-speed rail line are negotiating for Beijing to increase its stake in the project after budget overruns look set to boost costs by a fifth, a company executive said.

The 142 km (88 miles) rail project, connecting the capital Jakarta to Bandung, which is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, was originally expected to cost 66.76 trillion rupiah ($4.57 billion) when awarded to a consortium of Chinese and Indonesian state firms in 2015.

Construction company Wijaya Karya has the biggest share in a 60% stake it co-owns with other Indonesian firms in the consortium, named PT KCIC. The China Railway Engineering Corporation and other Chinese companies control the rest.

Wijaya Karya President Director Agung Budi Waskito expected costs to rise by 20% to finish construction, due between the end of next year to early 2023, and said that companies were in talks with Chinese counterparts to reduce their 60% stake.

“We hope Indonesia has a smaller portion than what it is now so the cost overrun can be borne by the (Chinese) government,” Agung told an online seminar on Wednesday.

Mirza Soraya, corporate secretary of KCIC, said that unexpected expenses particularly related to land clearing and dealing with utilities like water or power boosted costs.
