Groundbreaking of Jakarta-Bandung Fast Train Project Planned on January 21

http://skalanews.com/detail/english/...-on-January-21

Skalanews - The groundbreaking ceremony of the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed train (HST) project is expected to be held on January 21, 2016, after all permits are secured by mid-January, Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung stated on Monday.

He said the groundbreaking ceremony will be held in Walini, Purwakarta, West Java.

Pramono said President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) had ordered the completion of all licensing processes, so that the groundbreaking of the project would be held on January 21, 2016.

The cabinet secretary made the statement after attending a limited cabinet meeting chaired by President Jokowi at the Presidential Office on Monday.

"In essence, the project's construction work should be started on January 21, 2016. All licensing processes should have been completed by January 14-15," remarked Pramono.

The limited cabinet meeting was attended by the West Java governor, deputy governor of Jakarta, Bandung mayor, and representatives of the state-owned companies' (BUMN's) consortium that are involved in the project.

The consortium chairman Bintang Probowo noted before the end of last year that his side had secured all ground planning permits and the approvals of all districts/municipalities whose areas had received clearance for the fast train project.

"We have set a target to secure the remaining permits in the coming one to two days or before January 14," Bintang affirmed.

West Java Governor Ahmad Heryawan hailed the fact that the train project would start soon.

He revealed that the project would start from the Halim area in East Jakarta to the Gedebage or Tegalluar region in Bandung, West Java.

"About 95 percent of the land used for the project is located in West Java. So, the approvals of the West Java governor and eight district heads were needed for ground planning recommendations," he emphasized.

Meanwhile, the West Java provincial government has planned to synchronize the construction of the greater Bandung monorail and Jakarta-Bandung HST projects to support the mass rapid transit system, a local government official stated recently.

The representatives of China's Chongqing Consortium have been informed of the plan to synchronize the construction of the Jakarta-Bandung HST and greater Bandung monorail projects, Secretary of the West Java provincial government Iwa Karniwa noted.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting with China's Chongqing Consortium, he said a need to synchronize the construction of the monorail and HST projects would be further discussed by the representatives of the West Java Transportation Office.

Meanwhile, Head of the West Java Transportation Office Dedy Taufik remarked that the aspect to be synchronized was related to the programs and not the investors.

The development of the HST serving the Bandung-Jakarta route should be connected with the monorail and light rail transit construction projects, he added. (ant/mar)

First high-speed train project on track

http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...ect-track.html

The government’s plan to kick off the construction of the country’s first high-speed rail link later this month is on track as all the preparations except some paperwork have been completed, transportation officials have said.

Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan said Wednesday that the Indonesian-Chinese joint venture PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), which would build and operate the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway, had fulfilled all requirements, including getting recommendations from the regional administrations of the areas passed by the train.

Because of such progress, he had issued a permit for the train routes, which are mostly located in West Java, Jonan said. “The next step for the joint venture is to request the operational permit,” he said, adding that the company would be unlikely to face problems obtaining such a permit because it had already fulfilled the minimum capital requirement of Rp 1 trillion (US$72.3 million).


KCIC has already obtained as much as Rp 1.18 trillion for the required capital, sourced from an Indonesian state enterprises consortium and China Railway.

“I only need a statement letter from the firm that the capital will not be retrieved, but I think it’s just an administration thing; no problem,” Jonan said, adding that he would sign the permit on Thursday if the joint venture could make such a statement.

Jonan revealed that the only document still being awaited by the ministry was the Environmental Impact Analysis (Amdal), an important requirement for the approval of the joint venture’s engineering design for the high-speed train project.

Jonan also said that the company needed to first acquire the approval for its engineering design before breaking ground, which is expected to take place on Jan. 21.

The ministry’s director general for railways, Hermanto Dwiatmoko, separately said that the ministry would assist the approval process. “We will work on it as long as they have completed the requirement. We’ll see how it goes,” Hermanto said.

Construction for the high-speed train service, which will run at more than 250 kilometers per hour on a 142-kilometer-long track, is supposed to begin in 2016 and be finished by 2018. It is set to start operations in early 2019. It will serve four stations between Jakarta and Bandung in its first phase: Halim, Karawang, Walini and Tegalluar.

KCIC has been chosen to build the high-speed train project, which it is estimated will cost about US$5.5 billion.

KCIC itself is a joint venture between Indonesian state firms PT Wijaya Karya, PT KAI, PT Jasa Marga and PT Perkebunan Nusantara VIII with the China Railway International Co. Ltd.

China secured the project in Southeast Asia’s largest economy after Indonesian officials rejected Japan’s requirement for the government to guarantee loans.

The project was deemed significant for President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo who pledged to improve the country’s infrastructure to boost the economy.

The government has also issued Presidential Regulation No. 107/2015 on the acceleration of infrastructure for the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway project, in its bid to expedite the process.

The President’s meeting about the project on Jan. 4, which was also attended by Vice President Jusuf Kalla and West Java Governor Ahmad Heryawan, among others, scheduled the groundbreaking ceremony for Jan. 21.

Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung said he also hoped that the approval for the project’s engineering designs could be issued on Jan. 14 or Jan. 15 so that the groundbreaking could be carried out according to schedule.

“Everything is still under process, but it is on the right track,” KCIC president director Hanggoro Budi Wiryawan said in a text message.

Voicing a similar optimism, PT KAI president director Edi Sukmoro said that he expected that the train would start operations on time. “I still expect it to operate in 2019,” Edi said.

He said that the Amdal document was currently handled by an independent consultant and would finish soon. KAI contributed Rp 125 billion of the required capital, according to Edi. - See more at: http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2....qltgqfB6.dpuf

Plans and studies have been in the works for HSR in Indonesia since before 2010, yet a revised plan to build a high-speed rail in Indonesia was announced by Indonesian Government in July 2015. The Indonesia's first — and possibly also Southeast Asia's first high-speed rail project — is proposed to connect the national capital Jakarta with Bandung city in neighboring West Java province, covering the distance of 150 kilometres, and also expected to expand further to connect Indonesia's second largest city, Surabaya in East Java.

Japan and China have expressed their interest in the project, previously both nations have done comprehensive studies on the Jakarta-Bandung section (150 km), while only JICA of Japan has issued a study the entire way to Surabaya (730 km).[1] This Indonesian high-speed rail bid, marked the intense rivalry between Japan and China in their competition for lucrative Asian infrastructure projects.

On late September 2015, Indonesia awards this multibillion-dollar railway project to China, much to Japan's disappointment. It was said that China’s offer to build the Jakarta-Bandung line without requiring loan guarantee nor funding from Indonesia was the tipping point of Jakarta's decision.

In January 2016, Transportation Minister has released trase/route permit (Keputusan Menteri Perhubungan Nomor KP. 25 Tahun 2016 tentang Penetapan Trase Jalur Kereta Api Cepat antara Jakarta dan Bandung Lintas Halim-Tegalluar) for High Speed Railway between 142.3 kilometers Jakarta-Bandung with Halim, Karawang, Walini, and Tegalluar stations and also Tegalluar depo. The Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail is planned to begin its operations to public in 2019. The Japanese proposal can start operation only by 2023. The section Bandung-Surabaya, though a priority section due to heavy congestion, has been officially shelved for budget reasons since early 2015.

Indonesia starts construction of high-speed rail line
Originally published January 20, 2016 at 10:57 pm Updated January 21, 2016 at 1:30 am


Doc.http://setkab.go.id/

WALINI, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia broke ground Thursday on a joint project with China to build Southeast Asia’s first high speed rail service, linking the Indonesian capital Jakarta with Bandung in western Java.
The 142.3 kilometer (88.4 mile) railway worth $5.5 billion is being constructed by PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia-China, a joint venture between an Indonesian consortium of four state-owned companies and China Railway International Co. Ltd.

The groundbreaking ceremony was presided over by Indonesia’s President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who signed an inscription on a large stone in Walini, a West Java town and location of one of the railway’s eight stations.
The rail deal was signed in October after Indonesia selected China over Japan for the three-year project. China agreed to complete railway without using Indonesian government money or requiring a government guarantee for loans. Indonesian companies have a combined 60 percent stake in the project.

Jokowi said not using the state budget for the rail project in heavily populated Java meant money wasn’t taken away from infrastructure projects in other parts of Indonesia, a sprawling archipelago.
He said other railways are under construction in Sumatra and Sulawesi while others are planned for Papua and Kalimantan.

Also on hand for the ground breaking was Chinese State Councilor Wang Yong who arrived Wednesday and also will meet with Jokowi.
The trains are expected start operating in early 2019 with speeds of 250 kilometers (155 miles) an hour, and a fare of about $16 for a journey of about 40 minutes. The existing trains to Bandung, the capital of West Java province, take about three hours and cost about $8.

The Jakarta-Bandung line is part of a 750-kilometer (466-mile) high-speed train plant that would cut across four provinces on the main island of Java and end in the country’s second largest city of Surabaya....

Full steam ahead for Indonesia's first high-speed railway



http://en.people.cn/n3/2016/0121/c90000-9006939.html

China's first high-speed railroad project in Indonesia will arouse more Southeast Asian countries' interest and put their economic growth on a firmer footing through advanced transportation systems and regional connectivity.

China was selected by the Indonesian government to build the nation's first bullet rail link last year. It will start constructing a $5.5 billion high-speed railway line from Jakarta to Bandung on Thursday.

With the operational date scheduled for 2019, the project will be developed by PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia-China, a joint venture formed in October 2015 between a consortium of Indonesian state-owned companies and China Railway International Co Ltd, a subsidiary of China Railway Corp Group.

The project is financed through a Chinese loan provided by China Development Bank which provides around 75 percent of the funding with the rest arranged by the joint venture partners.

Zhou Qinghe, president of CRRC Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co, part of the country's largest train manufacturer China Railway Rolling Stock Corp, said China-ASEAN economies will count on enhanced regional cooperation, especially in rail transportation, to stimulate trade and attract investment while improving regional economic integration.

The Chinese train maker has a manufacturing base in Malaysia and is involved in production, assembly, testing, maintenance and refurbishment, with an annual production capacity of 100 electric trains and light railway engines.

"Building the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway can help supporting industries such as power generation, logistics, smelting, parts manufacturing, infrastructure, electronics, and even food and beverage service sectors. It will be able to offer a balanced growth in all sectors," said Zhou. Based on distance and technical content, Zhou said the project is expected to generate more than 41,000 jobs a year during construction.

Stations and their surrounding areas will also experience an increase in activity and development, which will result in new opportunities for the real estate sector. Urban and rural areas along the route will also experience balanced development.

Daily passenger flow on the 150-kilometer link is expected to be 44,000 on average and the travel time between the two central hubs will be reduced to less than 40 minutes from the previous three and five hours.

In the ASEAN region, CRRC Zhuzhou's main markets are Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand, with rising demand for both electric locomotives and mass transit trains for city and suburban lines.

"Ongoing plans by Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia to build a high-speed rail link will further fuel hope that Southeast Asia could one day have a similar European-style railway service system," said Zhang Xiaojing, director of the Institute of Economic Research for China and ASEAN at the Beijing-based University of International Business and Economics.

Zhao said because most Southeast Asian nations have just begun to build new railway lines or bought new trains, they are keen to acquire technological support from China with a relatively low cost to assist in the daily operations, maintenance, staff training and other services.

China Railway Corp, the country's railway operator, said it will accelerate the pace of building both high-speed and regular railways in countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Russia and the United States, to compete with rivals from Japan, Germany and France.

Sheng Guangzu, general manager of CRC, said the company will deploy more resources and manpower to construct big-ticket international projects such as the China-Thailand railway, the China-Laos railway, the Hungary-Serbia railway and a light rail project in Pakistan this year.

Land acquisition to start soon

http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2...tart-soon.html

At least 600 hectares of privately owned and industrial land will be cleared to pave the way for the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway, excluding plots of land belonging to some state-owned enterprises (SOE).

Railway developer PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC) president director Hanggoro Budi Wiryawan said only 20 percent of the total land for the project belonged to SOEs.

He said most of the land acquisition would happen between Karawang and Purwakarta in West Java, as there were a lot of private and industrial areas on that stretch of the route of the high-speed railway.

The company will soon inform the public about the land clearance for the ambitious railway project, which will span more than 142 kilometers, serving four stations from Halim in East Jakarta via Karawang and Walini to Tegalluar in West Java.

“Well, from Halim to Karawang, we can use 40 km along the toll road, but from Karawang to Jatiluhur we have to procure privately-owned land. After that, we have to also procure some more land in Jatiluhur,” he told the press after the groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday.

He said the rest of the railway route through Padalarang, Cimahi and Tegalluar would again pass through 30 km of land along the toll road belong to state-owned toll road operator Jasa Marga, which is one of the SOEs in the KCIC joint venture.

The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, State-Owned Enterprises Minister Rini Soemarno, Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar as well as Chinese State Councillor Wang Yong and China Railway Corp. president Sheng Guangzu, among others.

Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan was not present at the event as he was reportedly finalizing permits for the project.

The government allegedly bypassed existing regulations as it rushed to complete the permit procedures ahead of the groundbreaking, with the railway route permits issued last week and the Environmental Impact Analysis (Amdal) documents only approved on Wednesday.

Officials present at the event maintained that the Amdal procedure complied with the law. The Environment and Forestry Ministry has given KCIC a one-month deadline to strengthen the documents and gather public opinion.

“I got the report yesterday that it [the Amdal] is done,” Jokowi said briefly during the ceremony.

Previously, Widodo Sambodo, a member of the Environment and Forestry Ministry’s Amdal assessment team, criticized the “irregular” Amdal approval process, arguing that some necessary steps had been skipped, including data gathering, which was cut to one week from six months, and the impact of the construction on water catchment in the Saguling and Citarum areas.

He argued that an improper Amdal assessment could lead to accidents in the future.

So far, only two of the nine cities on the railway route made adjustments to their spatial planning (RTRW) documents, according to the ministry official.

Meanwhile, Indonesian Transportation Society (MTI) chairman Danang Parikesit said KCIC should inform the public about the project’s impact on water and soil along the route.

He also suggested that the government improve existing train infrastructure rather than approve such big projects, which bore the risk of failure in case the passenger targets could not be met.

Hanggoro of KCIC estimated that the total area needed for stations and the railway tracks would reach up to 650 hectares, only 20 percent of which belongs to the SOEs.

He declined to reveal the estimated cost to procure the land but reiterated that it was still within the estimated overall project cost of US$5.5 billion.

A loan from China Development Bank that would cover three quarters of the investment would be disbursed gradually, with 20 percent of the loan to be disbursed this year, according to Hanggoro.

He also said that the procurement would be the next phase, as the firm had to process the procurement of 57 hectares managed by state-owned forestry firm Perhutani in Karawang and 45 hectares managed by the Indonesian Air Force in Halim.

The firm is still in the process of procuring the Perhutani-managed land, which would require the firm to provide replacement land of twice the size, according to Environment and Forestry Ministry regulations.

“We won’t enter the forestry area before the replacement land is ready,” Hanggoro said.

Environment and Forestry Ministry planology director general San Afri Awang said the ministry would give the company a year to provide the replacement, with the 114 hectares of land predicted to be located near Karawang and Purwakarta.

I guess I need some explanation on this project... First of all that's a very short line (phase 1 with phase 2 not being funded), will it really be possible to gain all the typical advantages of HSR? The second thing what attracted my attention is the rather high price tag (ca 38 million $/km). Is the terrain particularly challenging with many tunnels and viaducts required? On a flat land in Europe prices per km are lower than this despite much higher labour costs.

I guess all these now numerous HSR projects in South Asia attracts interest only by Chinese and Japanese because part of the requirement are very favourable financing packages. I don't think Japanese have much chance of competing with Chinese on that aspect.

I think the whole route will be elevated to avoid accidenta and minimize land compensation, and the terrain around Bandung is rough, plus additional anti-seismic measures are need, all of which will drive up the cost....

Actually Japan's soft loan terms are more favorable, 0.1-0.3% for Yen loan, whereas China can only offer US dollar loan with 2%. the problem is Japan want to build HSR with JP standard which is not compatible with European and Chinese one, and they refuse to let other rolling stocks run on their tracks.... That means you have to buy JP products and maintenance with higher price tag. Chinese standard is compatible with Europen one, so you can have more options when it comes to rolling stocks and so forth. All of these has to be taken into account when government decide which is best for the country both in the short and long run

tjrgx, surely there must be a mistake here? 39,000 man hours corresponds (given a work year of just over 2,000 hours for an average blue-collar worker) to less than 20 man years. They can hardly build a HS track employing only the equivalent of 20 people for just under one year?

High speed rail grinds to halt
Five days after the ceremony to celebrate the ground-breaking of the Jakarta-Bandung high speed railway project, the government has changed its mind, saying that construction cannot proceed as a result of unresolved issues and incomplete paperwork.

Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan confirmed on Tuesday he had not issued the building permit as the company developing the railway, PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), had not submitted the required documents.

JAKARTA,(PRLM).- Masih adanya perizinan-perizinan yang belum rampung seperti izin pembangunan dan izin konsesi, tidak menghambat pengerjaan proyek kereta cepat. Soalnya izin-izin itu sudah dalam proses. Namun, Presiden RI Joko Widodo memang masih ingin mengevaluasi proses proyek kereta cepat rute Jakarta-Bandung itu.

"Siapa bilang izin-izin belum beres, ini proses. Itu (izin pembangunan dan konsesi) kan dalam proses, lagi diproses kemenhub. Jadi bukan mangkrak. Tetapi kan kemudian ada masukan-masukan, ini didengar presiden," kata Staf Khusus Presiden Bidang Komunikasi Johan Budi di Istana Kepresidenan, Jakarta, Rabu (27/1/2016).

Jakarta-Bandung HSR Besieged Four Sources of Earthquake

Development of a HSR from Jakarta-Bandung is obligated to take into account the seismicity zones and support ground to minimize the risk of disaster. There are four sources of earthquake in the region that once triggered a damaging earthquake in the past so it is feared endangering operasionalisasi KA quickly.

"From our study, four earthquake source could have an impact on the HSR from Jakarta-Bandung, namely the Fault ruptured along Baribis, Lembang, Sesar Cimandiri, and plate subduction zone in the Indian Ocean," said the head of the earthquake and Tsunami Mitigation Agency for meteorology, climatology and Geophysics (BMKG) Daryono, Jakarta, Monday (26/1).

SESAR Baribis stretches from Subang Regency until the brass District, West Java, and thus trigger a number of earthquakes in the past, such as the earthquake of 1842 and 1875 years Brass, Majalengka earthquake in 1912 and 1990, consisting of the magnitude (M) 5.8 so damaging many buildings mainly in Australia...

Indonesia Suspends Chinese-Funded Rail Project
ENR January 28, 2016
Saibal Dasgupta

Indonesia sprung a surprise on Thursday suspending a $5.5-billion high-speed rail project, which is being implemented by a Chinese company, and financed by the China Development Bank.

The decision came soon after Indonesian President Joko Widodo attended a ground-breaking ceremony organized by the contractor, PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), which is a joint venture between four state-owned Indonesian companies and China Railway International Co. Ltd.

The high-speed rail plan is meant to connect two major cities, Jakarta and Bandhung, across a distance of 142 kilometers. This is part of a larger 750-km long project that would traverse four provinces, and end in the country’s second biggest city of Surabaya.

The transport ministry, which blocked the project, blamed the company for failure to come up with development design, technical illustrations, field data and other specifications. In addition, there are some unresolved issues that need to be sorted out before issuing the concession agreement, the ministry said.

“We are very strict [on this] because this is the first time we’ve conducted this kind of project, and we are not done with the evaluation,” Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan said.

There are signs of serious differences between the company and Indonesia’s transportation ministry on several issues including sharing the risks of default, and conducting essential studies, such as hydrological survey.

Besides, the company has issued some of the documents in Chinese, which officials in Jakarta find it difficult to grasp.

“We still haven’t received the required documents. There are even a lot of documents in Chinese. How can we even evaluate them?” the ministry’s director general of railways, Hermanto Dwiatmoko, said earlier.

Renegotiations ahead?

Indonesian sources said the transport ministry may not be satisfied if the railway builders came forward with documents they had not furnished earlier. It may demand a renegotiation on several issues like risk factors before completing the concession agreement.

The unissued concession agreement is meant to cover issues such as risk of default and the duration of the concession. The ministry had not even issued the building permit for the first 5 km of the railway.

There are differences on issues like business plan, and bank guarantee of five percent of total investments. The project will need to acquire at least 600 hectares of land, which has not yet been completed.

One of the ministry’s requirements is that the company must restore the project site to its original condition in case construction does not proceed for any reason.

“We want to ensure that if the project’s development fails in the middle of construction, the government will not be burdened by it,” the minister said.

He referred to a 2004 dispute between the government and a construction company after a monorail project in Jakarta had been held up, adding that he did not want a repeat of that situation.

Under the original plan, work on the Jakarta-Bandung project was meant to begin this year and completed by 2019. The track was meant to be laid to ensure a speed of 350 km per hour for passenger trains.

KCIC, the builder, has so far received some of the necessary licenses that include track route permits, a railway transportation firm permit, an environmental impact analysis (Amdal) and toll-road land use permit different ministries, including the Public Housing and Public Works Ministry.

Painful decision

For the Chinese company, the transport ministry’s decision is painful because it managed to muscle out of competition from Japan’s Kawasaki Heavy Industries by arranging soft loans from the China Development Bank, which will come up with 75 percent of the cost.

The Japanese government reacted sharply after Jakarta awarded it to the Chinese led consortium in October last year.

“I’m confident Japan put forward the best and most practical plan,” its chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga, said. “The policy suddenly changed — it’s hard to understand how the Chinese plan was adopted, and I can only describe it as extremely regrettable.”

This is the second major Chinese-backed high-speed rail project to be cancelled. Mexico pulled out of a $3.7-billion project in 2014. Long months of bitter negotiations over compensation were finally settled after Mexico agreed to compensate China Railway Construction Corp. to the tune of $1.31 million in May last year.

Longest span bridge

It is not all gloom and doom for Chinese railway executives these days. The government of Vietnam has just announced it will carry out feasibility study for a major railway project to be constructed by Chinese companies.

Laos has agreed to offer Chinese funding worth $500 million for a railway project, which will be built by Chinese companies, after months of reluctance. A local minister said China has now agreed to extend the loan for less than three percent after accepting his government’s request for low rates.

On Jan. 24, work began along Nu River in China’s Yunnan province in what is expected to become the world’s longest span bridge, according to the Chinese ministry of railways.

The bridge is part of the China-Myanmar Railway project being built to connect China's Kunming and Myanmar's Yangon over a length of 1,920 km. This includes a 690-km-long section in China.

The steel truss railroad bridge is part of the China-Myanmar railway project, Yan Shuxin, a director from China Railway 18 Bureau Group, said.

Yan said it would require rare precision to manufacture 46,000 tons of steel trusses. Assembliy at high altitude poses some major risks, he said.

The Nu River bridge will have a total length of 1,024 m. The height of the bridge above the river will be 211 m. The bridge will mainly use steel truss arch beams with a span of 490 m, Yan said.

The railway station will be built on a deck due to restrictions arising from the special topography of the Nu River and Gaoligong mountains, he said. The width of the deck will reach 24.9 m, which will be the widest among the same type of railway bridges in China, Yan said.
