Faster train service

SEMARANG: A new railway service will be launched next week that will slash travel time between Jakarta and Surabaya to nine hours with only one stop in Semarang.

The service will begin on Aug. 17 to coincide with Independence Day, said Eddy Sasongko, head of the Central Java Operation of the state railway firm PJKA. (har)
