Current construction site conditions
The Jakarta to Bandung high-speed railway construction currently underway will be a battle for orders between China and Japan in 2015 and the introduction of the Japanese bullet train system using yen loans was assured, China's financial burden The Indonesian government flipped out at the proposal of zero, and the Japanese proposal was rejected. The same construction specifications submitted by Japan to the Indonesian side at this time were also submitted by China. The rumor that it had been submitted to the government, leaving a feeling of being tripped up by the tough Chinese companies' negotiations. I remember hearing no small amount of resentment against the Indonesian government from the Japanese.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held in January 2016, but the expropriation of the land was slow to proceed, and in July 2018, 1 After more than a year's delay, construction finally started in earnest, but at that time, the Karawang and Cikarang area On the way back from the industrial park, foundations were dug up at a construction site along the TOL (highway), and the piers and bridge girders have already been installed in some sections, making the work on the site proceed at a very fast pace. As I looked at it, I marveled at how fast the Chinese capital is working (I don't know if it's safe or not), as expected.
Even so, it was unable to make up for the significant delay, and according to PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC), the original 2019 completion date is expected to be pushed back to September 2022, after the original 2019 completion target was changed to the first half of 2021 (January-June), and furthermore, construction work was temporarily halted due to the outbreak of the new corona virus.
On October 22, 2019, the Purbaleunyi Expressway (Jl. Tol Purbaleunyi) near the KM 130 point of the cross-bridge construction near the KM 130 point, the state-owned Oil company Pertamina's light oil pipe was punctured for some reason, and the leaking oil ignited and ended up at the construction site. There was a fire accident on a fuel pipe that was laid and the plowing work was temporarily suspended that day. The TOL congestion extends 100 km west to Jakarta, with no traffic on the upper and lower lines. As a result of the rush of cars to avoid the road, there was a huge traffic jam to the public road in Cikarang, and people on social media said, "I'm not going to be able to get out of the car. Some of the shouts of "the car didn't start for 5 hours in Cikarang, so I'm going home on foot" could be heard.
Indonesia's request for cooperation with Japan?
Even though the completion schedule has been postponed multiple times and the proposal did not initially require Indonesia to bear the financial burden of the project. The construction of the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Rail is over budget despite the fact that Adding Japan to the consortium, Japan's cooperation in the Jakarta-Surabaya semi-fastening project When unofficial news broke this month that the company intends to let the construction project go forward in the earlier order battle at Japanese people who felt betrayed have taken to social media to say, "Suck it up" and "You got what you deserved. up and down.
Indonesia is currently constructing the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway and the Japan's The idea is to integrate the existing railways between Jakarta and Surabaya into a semi-accelerated project, and , the semi-fast plan has already been agreed by Japan and Indonesia in September 2019, but the Japanese side has No official request for the extension of the high-speed railway has been received from Indonesia, and in the first place, it is a quasi-fast project. The proposed track is technically difficult to integrate with the wider high speed railway due to the narrow width of the track There are already indications that the

As this is an issue, it is hoped that negotiations will be developed with practicality as the top priority.
