The government is considering a plan to extend the ongoing Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail mega project to Surabaya, East Java, despite several delays on the existing development, in an effort to make the project more economically viable.
Currently, the Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail project passes through the military-run airport Halim Perdanakusuma, Karawang, Padalarang before ending in Tegalluar – about 19 kilometers to Bandung, West Java.
Extending the project to the far east of Java will also connect Yogyakarta and Surakarta, Central Java, before stopping in Surabaya. The government claimed it would also cut the trip from Jakarta to Surabaya, East Java, to just four hours from the current more than ten hours.
