Luhut Says Xi Jinping Will Inaugurate Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Train

Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said the Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Train (KCJB) project would later be inaugurated by President Jokowi and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

            “We want it because later, hopefully, President Xi Jinping and President Jokowi will also be in Bali. We will also try to inaugurate some of our big projects with China using Zoom,” said Luhut during a visit to tunnel 6 area in Purwakarta, West Bandung Regency, Wednesday (30/3/2022).

            For now, Luhut said the KCJB Project is targeted for trials this year, November to be exact. Previously, the KCJB construction project in tunnel 6 had experienced delays. The project was delayed due to landslides, due to the geographical location which had to pass through clay shale conditions. Thus, it makes the development process take more time.

“Due to yesterday’s landslide problem, we have been delayed for about 5-6 months. We will try to get rid of it immediately, if possible, 10 months from now, it will be a trial,” said Luhut.
