The Walini tunnel project of the High-Speed Railway (HSR) linking Indonesian capital Jakarta to Bandung was launched here Saturday. The Jakarta-Bandung HSR project contract was signed in Jakarta in early April 2017 between consortium joined by Chinese and Indonesian firms and KCIC, a China-Indonesia joint firm tasked with monitoring the project. The 142-km-long railway project is the first of such in Indonesia as well as in the whole region of Southeast Asia. It would shorten the traveling time between the two cities from three hours to 40 minutes and spur economic activities along the line.[Xinhua/Du Yu]
