Xinhua news agency, Jakarta, January 29 (Reporter Yu Qianliang, Zheng Shibo) – the turnout insertion construction of Bandung lanzeke station in Indonesia’s Yawan high-speed railway track laying project was successfully completed on the 28th. The tie line of track laying base and Indonesia’s existing railway line have successfully “joined hands”, creating conditions for the subsequent welding and laying of long rails of Yawan high-speed railway as planned.
On December 16 last year, the first batch of 50m long rails of Yawan high-speed railway arrived at zhilaza port in Indonesia from China. According to the plan, these long rails will be transported to lanzeke station through the existing railway in Indonesia, and then transported to the rail welding base of dekalur EMU Depot through the tie line of track laying base, and finally welded into 500 meters long rails, which will be used for laying seamless track of Yawan high-speed railway.
Lanzeke station turnout connects the tie line of track laying base with the existing railway line in Indonesia, which is the “throat” of the whole rail transportation channel. In order to ensure the smooth completion of turnout insertion, the track laying division of Yawan high speed railway project Department of China Power Construction Corporation made construction preparations in advance, optimized the scheme, improved the technical and safety disclosure, and clarified the division of responsibilities. The construction shall be carried out in strict accordance with the plan to ensure the completion on time.
The high speed rail city one belt, one road and China Indonesia’s pragmatic cooperation, is the landmark project linking the capital of Indonesia and Jakarta, the fourth largest city, Bandung, which is about 142 km long and the highest speed of 350 km. It is the first project of the first high speed rail system to be launched in China.
