Railway Electrification And Double-Double Tracking of Java Main Line Project (I)

Period (Date of Loan Agreement):
    December 13, 2001

    Jakarta, West Java

Amount Provided:
    41,034 million Yen

Executing Agency:
    Directorate General of Railway (DGR), Ministry of Transportation

Key Points:
    Increasing the transport capacity and operational efficiency by double-double tracking on the arterial section of Jabotabek Railways

The objective of the project is to enhance transport capacity and increase operational efficiency of two railway lines by eliminating the level crossing and double-double tracking to separate Jabotabek Railway line (commuter line) from the Java Main Line (long-distance line) in the section where the two lines share the same rail tracks. In addition, the scope of the project also includes electrification and extension of Bekasi line (commuter line) from Bekasi Station to Cikarang Station. This is expected to increase transport capacity in response to the expanding commuting zone, thereby contributing to sustainable socio-economic development in the target region. Preparation is currently under way for the bidding procedures for civil works.
