Another major progress has been made in the construction of the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway, as the DK121 rigid frame continuous beam, a key project of girder erection in the direction of No. 4 Box Girder Yard from Bandung to Jakarta, was successfully closed on Saturday, paving the way for subsequent girder erection and rail-laying.

It is located at the No. 223-No. 226 pier of DK1203 bridge, with a total length of 211.6 meters. The geological conditions are complicated, and the pile foundation is located in the silt layer of volcanic ash, with an average length of more than 60 meters.
In order to ensure the safe and orderly construction progress of the continuous beam during the COVID-19 epidemic, the Bridge Work Area of the Second Branch planned ahead and deployed carefully, took the construction as a high-risk process to carry out whole-process monitoring, and strengthened the management of personnel, mechanical equipment and construction organization.
The Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway, an important part of Jakarta-Surabaya highway corridor, is the first 350km/h standard high-speed railway in Indonesia and in Southeast Asia as a whole.
When the 142.3-km high-speed railway project is completed, the travel time between Jakarta and Bandung will be reduced to 40 minutes, compared to more than three hours currently.
