    Abstract

    Tanjung Enim is the largest coal mining field in South Sumatra and produces 2 million tons of coal each year. The coal from Tanjung Enim is tansported to Palembang by railway and road whereas to Lampung by rail way, then from Palembang to other ports outside South Sumatra by using barges through River Musi.. The depth of Musi river through which barges pass is decreasing and not sufficient for navigation during low water level. For that reason South Sumatra Province Government is planning to build sea harbor at Tanjung Api-Api near the estuary of Banyuasin river. The purpose of the study is to identify railway line, estimate infrastructure needed by using areal topography and field verification, The study shows that the interpretation of areal photography can be used to estimate the required infrastructure which include land acquisition, soil condition, best railway position , and crossings.
