Xi urges Widodo to help keep Sino-Indonesian rail project rolling
The near-derailment of the Jakarta-Bandung joint ventures offers valuable lessons for Chinese companies heading abroad, analyst says


Quote:
Hangzhou – President Xi Jinping urged his Indonesian counterpart Joko Widodo to ensure a smooth roll-out of the US$5.1 billion joint-venture Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway as the two leaders met in Hangzhou on Friday ahead of a Group of 20 summit.

The meeting comes two weeks after Indonesia scuttled 71 impounded foreign vessels, including three from China, a move seen as a tough response to Chinese claims that waters surrounding the Natuna Islands are part of traditional Chinese *fishing grounds.

But Xi focused on positives, saying China and Indonesia shared “broad common interests” and would expand cooperation on infrastructure, productivity, trade, investment, finance and e-commerce, to establish “more flagship projects”, state-run Xinhua reported.

Xi said bilateral relations were on a good path and China would “firmly support the unity of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations”, the report said.

Xi’s call over the rail project highlights problems in economic cooperation between the two countries.

The landmark scheme was halted in January after the Chinese partner failed to submit documents for approval. It finally received all its permits late last month but questions have mounted over its 2019 completion date.

Similar Chinese rail projects – part of the country’s ambitious offshore infrastructure plans – have been suspended in Laos and Thailand, offering valuable lessons to Chinese companies.

“Unlike the domestic market where infrastructure projects face little public opposition, it’s a different picture in other countries where domestic politics, power plays and environment issues are all *involved,” Jinan University Southeast Asian affairs expert Zhang Mingliang said. “This is something important for Chinese companies going abroad.”

Dai Fan, an international affairs expert also from Jinan University, said smooth implementation of the project could set an example for other Chinese projects in other countries.

“China is doing more projects overseas, some of which have encountered massive problems. China now needs a model that runs smoothly and develops well. And President Xi wants the high-speed rail project to serve as this model,” Dai said.

Indonesia Offers Semi High-speed Railway Project to Japan



Quote:
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan hopes the Japanese Government is willing to develop semi high-speed railway project that connect Jakarta and Surabaya.

"We have sent an official letter. I personally believe that the Japanese technology is the right one for this project,” Luhut said on Friday (7/10).

Luhut added that he has also had a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to discuss a number of issues about investment in Indonesia, including this semi high-speed railway project.

"The train is a semi high-speed train with the speed of 180-200 km per hour,” Luhut said, adding that with this train, it is expected that it would only take 3.5 hours to get to Surabaya from Jakarta.

Why so slow? It's not even semi high-speed, it's just a regular railway by modern standards. Surely a 250km/h-ish railway would've been a better compromise?

Furthermore, there are countless manufacturers that can build a railway for that speed, no need for "special Japanese technology".

it will be built using narrow gauge (improvement to current narrow gauge track), so 200kmh is actually already very fast

Indeed, 200Km/h on a narrow gauge is actually one of the highest-speed narrow gauged railway ever built, (if it was built)... One of the neighboring country had a 160Km/h on a metre gauge (AFAIK-CMIW).

I am not really fond of having it as a narrow-gauge railway. Indonesia should build its new railways in standard gauge as it is much more economical with higher-volume transport the country requires. At best they could regauge their existing lines to 1435mm, smoothen a lot of curves (starting on flat land, the Pantura even more than already happened, later the mountains) to accomodate 160kph and, on the longer term, electrify, preferrably with 25kV AC to be able to integrate with the HSR. (as I think that line should be integrated much more with any other transport, the current plan looks like a nice showcase but does not integrate with other forms of transport rather than a secondary airport).
The other option seems to me 3kV DC, to integrate with existing electrification in Jakarta but will require two systems in the future.

Between Karwang/Cikampek and Cirebon there is room for a new railway, but at any other place a parallel railway over 650 kilometers is a white elephant. Investing in 1435mm and smoother tracks is probably cheaper and time-saving, especially in aquisition problems-prone Indonesia.

Based on you suggestion, rather than regauging entire line, I think it is better to just build entire new high speed rail track parallel the existing North Coast Line (Pantura), and the old line will be used for freight and regional services.

But our government have more urgent things to prioritize first, like building urban rail transit (which even Jakarta doesn't have, not to mention other cities) and remember that Indonesia is not only consists of Java and Bali island, all of outer islands of Indonesia doesn't have even single kilometre of rail track at all, save for few hundred kilometres of isolated lines in North and South Sumatra. Which is now the government focussing on building new lines in Sumatra to connect those missing link and new railroads in Sulawesi Island (which is unfortunately temporarily stopped right now because of funding issues)

So yeah we may wish to have a high speed rail in Java to connect every major cities in that island, but the reality is even to build new rail lines outside Java and some few urban rail transit lines, our government is already running out of money.

Land Acquisition for High-Speed Train Completes in December



Quote:
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President director of state-owned contractor firm Wijaya Karya, Bintang Perbowo, expressed optimism that the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed train project would complete on time.

Bintang revealed that his company has acquired all development permits and is currently applying for land acquisition permit.

“All permits are complete. The land [acquisition permit] has progressed to 85 percent. It’s expected to be 100 percent in December,” he told Tempo at the CEO Forum held in Jakarta on Thursday, November 24, 2016.

The land acquisition in Halim Perdanakusuma Airport area, Bintang said, would not be a problem, since it has been discussed in a limited meeting.

“[The land acquisition] has been approved yesterday. Perhaps the President will inspect the location this week,” he added.

Bintang explained that in order to expedite the infrastructure development, the company will procure heavy equipment to support the project development. The company is also building precast concrete plants.

“We’re preparing precast concrete plants along the railway because it’s impossible for us to transport concrete using trucks,” he said.

older report:
Quote:
Jakarta. President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are expected to witness the signing of an agreement on a joint study of the Jakarta-Surabaya semi-high-speed railway next week.

Abe will visit Indonesia next week and the signing will be a step forward to cement a vital role for Japan in several giant infrastructure projects across the archipelago.

The deal on the $7.8 billion railway would be the first of several projects worth billions of dollars, which Japan and Indonesia will undertake under a public-private partnership scheme involving state-owned and private companies from both countries.

Express train enough for Jakarta-Surabaya: Study


Quote:
Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The Technology Application and Study Center (BPPT) said express train with a speed of 160 kilometer per hour is enough to cope with traffic congestion between Jakarta and Surabaya.

A preliminary feasibility study by BPPT, the transport ministry, PT KAI (state railway company) and Japan, showed that medium speed train is enough to reduce the land and air transport burden between the two countrys largest cities, BPPT chief Unggul Priyanto said here on Thursday.

"Building speed train as Japans Shinkansen would cost hugely. Development of express train is urgent , and its development should start in 2017 although not many are interested in the project, Unggul said.

The study also showed that the existing rails could still be used for medium speed train, he said.

"The existing rails, therefore, could be used more optimally and no need to build new track," he added.

In 2016, BPPT provided technical support for the development of the Light Rapid Transit (LRT) in Palembang and study on the Greater Jakarta LRT system together with the transport ministry and on the Jakarta-Bandung speed train project.

Earlier Transport Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said based on the result of a recent meeting between President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the Indonesia government offered an opportunity for Japan to submit proposal for the plan to revitalize Java northern rail tracks.

Budi said the government had offered Japan the opportunity to take part in the project estimated to cost Rp80 trillion.

The government will also offer this project to other countries, including China, who won the high-speed railway project linking Jakarta to Bandung, West Java.

The government expects the upgraded line will shorten the trip to six hours from the current 13 hours using regular trains of state railway company PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI).

The prospective contractors would prepare pre feasibility study including on the value of investment, and the result of the study would be compared with one by the National Development Planning Board (Bappenas).

The minister said the offer to Japan and other foreign countries was made because of the governments limited budget for transportation projects.

He said the medium-speed train would operate on the existing line, with the government planning to eliminate 1,000 level crossings from the track from Jakarta to Surabaya.

Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan delivered an official letter offering the project to the Japanese government during his recent visit to Tokyo.(*)

Indonesia hamstrings itself in infrastructure push
Government may be too frugal for its own good
JUN SUZUKI, Nikkei staff writer

Indonesian President Joko Widodo, far left, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, second from right, at the presidential palace in Bogor, Indonesia, on Jan. 15.
JAKARTA -- Despite being a top-priority initiative, infrastructure development in Indonesia has stalled amid construction and funding delays stemming in large part from efforts by the government to control its own spending.
Whether President Joko Widodo can get the ball rolling again will be a critical test of his leadership as he aims to stay in office after his first term ends in less than three years.
Out of sync?
Many infrastructure projects are underway in the country, including a new port, railway modernization and power plant construction -- each worth the equivalent of hundreds of billions of yen, or billions of dollars. But fundraising and other challenges are hampering progress.
A Jan. 15 meeting between President Joko Widodo and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe epitomized the problem. Widodo welcomed Abe to the city of Bogor, near Jakarta, as Indonesia's first state guest of 2017.
The pick of the Bogor presidential palace surrounded by greenery, rather than the central Jakarta palace, shows that Widodo wanted to take time to discuss pending matters in a quiet environment, according to a senior member of his staff. Foreign leaders rarely get to visit the Bogor palace. That Abe did highlights the special level of hospitality extended to Japan.
The Japanese side also described the summit as amicable. But Indonesia apparently did not get what it wanted from the meeting: concrete progress on infrastructure development.
Indonesia had hoped to sign memorandums of understanding on projects Japan had agreed to support: one on contractor selection for a new Patimban port, and another on a feasibility study for modernizing a roughly 750km railway connecting Jakarta in West Java and Surabaya in East Java. Another memo could have been signed on extending the interest of Japan's Inpex in the Masela block, one of the world's largest liquefied natural gas projects.
But the post-summit joint statement only touched on strengthening maritime cooperation and on the development of remote islands. No memos were signed on infrastructure projects.
Hopes were particularly strong for Japan to sign on to the railway feasibility study. Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, who is exceptionally close to Widodo, had asserted before the summit that Japan would participate. This reflected Jakarta's earnest desire to bring Tokyo on board.
Who knows what?
Abe likely avoided making new commitments because the two sides are not on the same page. This railway project was a plan to speed up service by addressing illegal crossings and sharp curves, using existing diesel locomotives. The assumption has been that Japanese official development assistance would be tapped for funding.
But Indonesia abruptly changed the scope when a new transport minister took office at the end of July. It now wants to electrify the entire rail line. Such changes would quadruple the cost from around 200 billion yen ($1.74 billion) to 850 billion yen. "There is no way Japan can accept such plans as is," a perplexed Japanese government source said.
Indonesia wants to build high-quality infrastructure without adding to its fiscal deficit. So it has been bent on shouldering no outlays by employing public-private partnerships as a funding vehicle. But having private companies undertake projects often means delays in funding and the start of construction.
No real progress has been made on a Chinese-backed high-speed-rail project whose construction officially began a year ago. Many other projects are in a similar boat.
The summit also shed light on weak communication within the Indonesian government. Widodo said after the meeting that Indonesia was awaiting a Japanese proposal on the cross-Java rail project, even though it had already been submitted.
Can Widodo demonstrate his leadership by pushing infrastructure development? The coming year will prove to be crucial as he seeks another term.

And there I read what Indonesia really should do: using existing lines for a faster express train to Surabaya. Investments can be limited to smoothening curves on the line and electrification in order to keep a constant 160kph in an economical way. In that case it would easily be possible to get under the six hours.

To be honest though, a new railway up to Cirebon wouldn't be bad either to relieve congestion and make it 200kph, but I remind however that such a speed is more economical with 1435mm. Well, actually anything on the north coast of Java would be more economical with 1435mm (wider wagons on higher speed for passengers and a good gauge for container freight).

Still it is good that the line to Bandung is a dedicated HST as the old line was just too curvy anyway and because, even when the whole line would be doubled and upgraded, the old line would get burdened under traffic.

Jakarta-Surabaya Project May Become High-Speed Train
Jakarta | Wed, January 25, 2017 | 10:29 am

The Transportation Ministry says the government has not overlooked the possibility of converting a semi high-speed train connecting Jakarta and Surabaya in East Java into a high-speed project, if it is technically possible.

The ministry is currently looking for consultants from Japan to conduct a feasibility study for the project, which is expected to be completed by the end of this year, said Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi.

“It depends. If it is feasible then the project may become a high-speed one,” he said following a meeting at the State Palace in Central Jakarta.

The Jakarta-Surabaya project is part of the government’s efforts to revitalize the existing railway, which will be developed into a medium-speed railway with an estimated capacity of 160 kilometers per hour.

The travel time between the two cities is expected to fall to three-and-a-half hours from the current 12 hours as a result of the project, for which the first phase of development may require US$2.6 billion of financing. (bbn)
