Japan eyes study for bullet train in Indonesia

JAKARTA - The Japanese government has agreed with Indonesia to conduct next year its first feasibility study on introducing Japan's bullet train technology to the Southeast Asian country, a source privy to the negotiations said Wednesday.
The envisioned study puts Japan a big step ahead of rivals including China and South Korea, and brings it closer to winning the contract, the source said.
Japan has been pushing strongly for its technology and expertise to be applied abroad in making infrastructure more efficient, including by building high-speed railway systems.
The Indonesian railway construction project is worth 50 trillion rupiah (about 450 billion yen), according to the source.
The Japan International Cooperation Agency will conduct a three-year study in connection with Indonesia's plan to build a high-speed railway system on Java Island, and is expected to sign a memorandum with the Indonesian government on Thursday at the earliest, the source said.
The study will look into costs and passenger demand, and ways to secure funding for the roughly 150-kilometer route connecting the Indonesian capital Jakarta to Bandung, the source said.
JICA will likely consider the prospect of operating an additional route from Bandung to Surabaya in eastern Java.
With Indonesia and other Asian nations keen to build high-speed railway links, the business opportunity for Japan is large as the combined potential railway routes will surpass 8,000 km, far larger than Japan's bullet train network covering 2,400 km, industry watchers said.
In 2011, the Indonesian government announced its vision to create a high-speed rail linking Jakarta and Surabaya, a center of commerce, as part of efforts to stimulate the country's economy.
Traveling at a maximum speed of 300 km per hour, the projected rail link would transport people over an estimated 730-km stretch in about three hours.

The construction of Double-double track (Quad Track) from Manggarai to Cikarang progress:



Uploaded with ImageShack.com

Note: the green lines on the map are Jabodetabek Commuter Rail Network



The concrete poles for overhead wires is ready:



Source: Agsan Dwipawikrama @semboyan35.com





Source: Dimas Bilal @semboyan35.com





The lines are Quad-tracked because the line is also serving both intercity and freight trains from the eastern part of Java, causing frequent delay to the commuter train service. The quad-track railway will ensure that commuter trains have its own dedicated railway line, separated from both intercity and freight trains.



The government have said that if this line is going to be congested again in the near future, it will be hexa-tracked or even octo-tracked

Some scenic photoshoots taken at Sumari area, near Gresik. It takes quite an effort to visit the place, as it is rather isolated and barely accessible by car.

Cepu Express returning back to Cepu from Surabaya.

It is number one in formality, but this train is never become the most popular train in Indonesia: Argo Bromo Anggrek.

How is it a megaproject? I would consider a full double-tracking and electrification of the current network as at least a megaproject. Even airports and other railway projects cost more than double tracking (less than a billion dollars -> 838 million).

Considering that the track is built in a rather "primitive method", it could be called "megaproject"

Actually 1/3 of the distance is already double tracked. The longest being Jakarta-Cirebon stretch. Parts of the track between Tegal and Pekalongan have also been double tracked.

Why wasn't it double-tracked in the beginning?

Because they were once belonged to several different companies, with different business strategies. Even the line on Javanese North Coast wasn't connected before 1940.
But during Japanese occupation, it was all amalgamated.
Still, up until 1980s the demand for double tracking still haven't existed due to low traffic. The demand arose in 1990s.

I wonder, are there long-distance night trains in Indonesia? If so, are there sleepers?

I happen to be one but I'm not an expert on the railway system there. I don't live there currently.

Not all Indonesians know about the railway system you know. Ask someone outside Java and it is likely that they don't know the names for any of the railway services that runs between cities or maybe even don't know which specific towns the railway lines go through.

But maybe I should've looked at sources beforehand:
