JAKARTA, July 30 (Xinhua) -- Twenty-four out of the total 28 continuous beams of the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway (HSR) in Indonesia have been successfully closed, paving the way for the work of box girder erection.

Among the 24 continuous beams, seven were closed amid the second wave of the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia since May this year, according to a statement released on Thursday by KCIC, a joint venture consortium between Chinese and Indonesian state-owned firms that runs the 142.3-km HSR.

The statement said the Chinese construction team, which is in charge of the beam closures, managed to carry out project construction while at the same time ensure COVID-19 prevention and control.

With a design speed of 350 km per hour, the high speed railway built with Chinese technology will cut the journey between Jakarta and Bandung, the capital of West Java province, from more than three hours to around 40 minutes. Enditem
