Jakarta-Surabaya High Speed Train Wants To Be Built, Here’s The Route

The government plans to continue the high-speed rail project. After Jakarta-Bandung, the high-speed train project will continue to Surabaya. With the fast train, Jakarta-Surabaya can be reached in 4 hours. The Jakarta-Surabaya high-speed rail project will pass through a number of areas.

Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi explained that the Jakarta-Surabaya high-speed rail plan is being prepared. According to him, the planning would not be possible without the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR). Budi said the project is planned to cross Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Solo to Surabaya.

“We really control this fast train. The planning concept is being carried out together, because it is impossible without PU we can carry out. So the plan is Jakarta, Karawang, Bandung, Kertajati, Purwokerto, then Jogja, Solo, Madiun, Surabaya for 4 hours. Pak President (Jokowi) as a visionary leader laid the foundations of the MRT, which we will oversee next will lay the foundations of the high-speed train. Our first stage is to make Jakarta-Bandung, now it must be guarded, the more people who guard it, the better,” he explained in National Seminar on ‘Sustainable Smart Transportation’, Thursday (27/10/2022).

According to Budi Karya, the construction of the Jakarta-Surabaya high-speed train can be carried out.
