BEIJING, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Final batch of rails required by the Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway (HSR) were cut at the Fangchenggang, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Tuesday, waiting to be shipped to Indonesia, reported China News Service recently.

Not long ago, these 100-meter rails were transported from Panzhihua, Sichuan Province to Fangchenggang by sea-rail combined train service on the new western sea-land channel. Due to restrictions on lifting and transportation in Indonesian ports, they need to be cut into 50-meter length at Fangchenggang terminal before being transported.

Since the first batch of 100-meter rails were transported from Panzhihua to Fangchenggang last year, a total of more than 30,000 tons of rails have been exported.

The Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Railway is a landmark project under the framework of Belt and Road Initiative. With a total length of 142.3 kilometers and a maximum designed speed of 350 kilometers per hour, it is jointly constructed and operated by China and Indonesia.
