Double Track Trans-Java will be Operated :Finally double-track Trans-Java railroad will commence its operations in the first quarter 2014, to help boost rail traffic between Java’s growth centers, Jakarta and Surabaya (East Java).

On Friday (22/11), Deputy Minister of Transportation, Bambang Susantono, explained the project is almost finished, with several sections expected to be ready for use during Christmas and New Year.

“Work on several sections, such as the Cirebon [West Java]–Brebes [Central Java] section, have recently been finished. So we will be able to operate the double-track railway between Jakarta and Pekalongan (Central Java) during the coming holiday period,” he said.

And then he said that the plots were located in the Semarang (Central Java)–Bojonegoro (East Java) and Bojonegoro–Surabaya sections.

For this project the government was aiming to complete 97 percent of the 727-kilometer railway project, which is costing the government Rp 9.8 trillion (US$838 million), by the end of this year so that it could conduct a trial operation next January.

The double-track system will increase the existing railway capacity from 64 trains to 200 trains per day as well as also reducing congestion and damage to roads.
