JAKARTA-- The first multi-span rigid frame continuous beam for the No.2 Bridge of Indonesia's Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway  was successfully closed on Sunday.



The steel structure continuous beam, which is being constructed by Power Construction Corporation of China, has a total length of 213.8 meters, crossing two highway ramps and an overpass, with dense land transportation networks and complex construction environment.

In order to ensure the safety, quality and efficiency of the project construction, the main span of the continuous beam adopted the construction method of cantilever hanging basket, and the side span adopted the cast-in-place construction method.

In 2016, the construction of Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway project was launched. The 142.3 km-long project will connect the country's capital Jakarta and Bandung in West Java province.

With a speed of 350 km per hour, the high speed railway built with Chinese technology will cut the journey from more than three hours to around 40 minutes.
