POWERCHINA drills first pile of foundation for Indonesian Railway Bridge

Updated: 2018-05-16

POWERCHINA began drilling the first pile of foundation for the longest bridge along the Jakarta-Bandung High-speed Railway in Indonesia on May 15.

The construction on the 46-meter-long, one-meter-wide pile foundation marked the grand commencement of the Jakarta-Bandung High-speed Railway, a flagship project under the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative.

The 142-km-long railway will connect Indonesia's capital, Jakarta, with its fourth largest city, Bandung, and it will allow trains to travel at a maximum speed of 350 kilometers per hour.

After completion, the fast line will bring frontier transportation service technologies to Indonesian people and cut travel time between the two cities from more than three hours to less than 40 minutes.

Therefore, POWERCHINA has been pulling out all the stops to fulfill the joint project between China and Indonesia by deadline. The construction of the project’s first pile of foundation is but a symbol of the unremitting efforts and methodical preparations that the project has required.

POWERCHINA pledged to optimize project management, specify construction details and facilitate regional cooperation to improve ties between China and Indonesia.
