Jakarta-bandung Steel Structure High-speed Railway Project

Ya-Wan steel structure  high-speed railway is a railway line from Jakarta to Bandung, and its full name is Jakarta-Bandung steel structure high-speed railway project. In 2011, Japan International Transportation Consulting Company conducted a feasibility study on the Yawan high-speed rail project. From March to April, 2015, China's National Development and Reform Commission and Indonesian state-owned enterprises respectively signed a memorandum of understanding and framework arrangement on the cooperative construction of Yawan high-speed rail project;

 On September 2, the same year, a ministerial meeting of the final comparison and discussion of high-speed rail schemes between China and Japan was held; On October 17th of the same year, China Railway Corporation signed an agreement with four Indonesian state-owned enterprises to establish a joint venture in Jakarta, marking that Chinese enterprises officially won the Jakarta-Bandung (Yawan) high-speed rail project. On the evening of March 16th, 2016, Indonesia's Ministry of Communications and India-Yawan  steel structure High-speed Railway Joint Venture Company signed a franchise agreement in Jakarta, Indonesia. On April 4, 2017, Yawan High-speed Railway EPC contract was signed in Jakarta, Indonesia, which marked that Yawan steel structure High-speed Railway entered the stage of full implementation. On April 20, 2022, with the first 500-meter-long track successfully laid on the Yawan steel structure high-speed train line in Bandung County, West Java, Indonesia, Yawan high-speed railway started track laying construction.

The planned Yawan steel structure high-speed railway connects Jakarta, the capital with a population of 9.16 million, and Bandung, the fourth largest city with a population of 1.7 million. The distance between the two cities is 120 kilometers, and the altitude difference is about 700 meters. After the completion of this section of high-speed railway, it may also extend from Bandung to Surabaya, the second largest city with a population of 3.6 million, 570 kilometers away. Therefore, the Yawan steel structure high-speed railway with a length of about 150 kilometers and eight stations at present may be the corner of a huge cake that will benefit about 15 million people in the three cities.

 The prospect is very attractive. Calculated at a speed of 300 kilometers per hour, the transit time of Yawan Twin Cities in the era of high-speed rail will be shortened from two or three hours to 36 minutes, and the one-way fare will be 200,000 rupiah (about US$ 20). For Indonesia with a population of 250 million and a territory of 17,000 islands, the construction of high-speed rail network is pregnant with great development opportunities, and for high-speed rail powers like China and Japan, it is also a huge market and a depression of interests. All Chinese equipment will be used. Steel structure Ya-Wan High-speed Railway is the first time that China's high-speed railway has gone abroad with a whole system, a whole factor and a whole industrial chain.
