Sumitomo Mitsui Construction Co. said Wednesday that it and Indonesian ally Hutama Karya have received an order to build a 2-kilometer underground section of the envisioned 15.7-km railway system to link north and south Jakarta.

The 15.6 billion yen order covers construction of both a shielded tunnel and two stations, Dukuh Atas and Bunderan HI, the Tokyo-based company said.

The civil engineering work is for Indonesia's first subway system. Construction of the mass high-speed transportation system will be financed by Japanese government credit, it added.
