Among them, the ballast track section is 112.8 kilometers, and the ballastless track is 166.6 kilometers, all of which use domestic 50m steel rails. The domestic steel rails are transported to the Yawan High-speed Railway Track Laying Base in Bandung County by domestic railway, sea and railway in Indonesia. Using a full set of domestic equipment and advanced pulse flash welding technology, the 50-meter steel rails are welded into 500-meter-long steel rails.
