To provide a faster access between Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (SHIA) and Jakarta downtown, AECOM provided pre-feasibility studies for SHIA Rail Link Public-Private Partnership (PPP) project.

Soekarno-Hatta International Airport (SHIA) is the main aviation hub for visitors going in and out of Jakarta, Indonesia. It is now one of the world’s busiest airports, handling over 50 million passengers annually.

To serve this increasing volume of air passengers, the Indonesian government initiated the study for an express rail link, connecting SHIA to the Jakarta city centre. The Client, PT Sarana Multia Infrastructur (PT SMI) is an agency under the Ministry of Finance, which administers  public-private partnership (PPP) projects in Indonesia. AECOM led a consortium and won the bid in 2012 to undertake the pre-feasibility study for the SHIA Rxpress Rail Link.

The proposed alignment consists of a dedicated rail track of approximately 35 kilometers long, connecting SHIA (northwest of Jakarta) with the existing domestic Airport at Halim (Southeast of Jakarta),  and passing through four existing, mass rapid transit stations in the city, including Pluit Station, Tanah Abang Station, Dukuh Atas Station, Manggarai Station. The proposed alignment will be elevated above ground, with journey time between SHIA and Halim expected to take lesser than 25 minutes.

• Identify different options for the  route alignments, and selection of a preferred alignment, including station locations;
• Technical scope included: compilation of statement of needs, functional specifications for the railway system, basic designs of the civil works. It also involved the study of constructability and operational feasibility;
• Demand and revenue forecasts, including fare optimization;
• Economic and social cost benefit analysis (ESCBA), project financial model, market and risk analysis; viability gapping fund (VGF);
• Environmental impact assessment (EIA) and safeguard studies, including land acquisition and resettlement;
• Legal and statutory framework of the PPP procedures.
