JAKARTA, May 28 (Xinhua) -- All 377 prefabricated box girders have been erected as of Friday for the first girder erection channel of the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway (HSR), the railway's operator said.

A statement released by KCIC, a joint venture consortium between Chinese and Indonesian state-owned firms that runs the 142.3-km HSR, said it set a good example for the smooth completion of the remaining five girder erection channels, marking another significant progress in the construction of the HSR.

KCIC said after the completion of the girder erection for the first channel, where the beam was erected simultaneously from two directions, Chinese companies will start the construction of bridge deck system and ballastless track.

With a speed of 350 km per hour, the high-speed railway built with the Chinese technology will cut the journey between Jakarta and Bandung, the capital of West Java province, from more than three hours to around 40 minutes.
