Indonesian Rail Operator Cancels All Surabaya-Jakarta Routes Due to Flood

State-owned railway operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) has canceled all routes of long-distance trains departing from East Java’s Surabaya to Jakarta as several areas are still affected by the flood, an official said on Sunday.

A spokesperson for PT KAI Operational Region (Daop) 8 Surabaya, Luqman Arif, said that the cancelation was due to the flood in some parts of West Java. The trains could not pass the tracks as the floodwaters reached a height of up to 150 centimeters.

“The extreme weather in the Operational Region 1 Jakarta on Sunday causes delays for long-distance trains, especially from Jakarta to Surabaya or vice versa,” Luqman said in a statement on February 21.

He said that the relevant PT KAI team is currently taking the necessary actions to repair the affected tracks.

He said the routes of long-distance trains leaving for Pasar Senen and Gambir stations in Jakarta from Surabaya have been canceled.
