This year will be a busy time for state-owned construction company Wijaya Karya (Wika) as it expedites the development of a long-awaited high-speed rail project connecting Jakarta and Bandung, West Java.

The company expects to wrap up 60 percent of the construction this year before its full completion in 2021, said president director Tumiyana.

He said the current development was going well as the company had reached 8 percent of the target by the end of last year, while 90.1 percent of the land had been cleared.
