MPR Publication - PRESS CONFERENCE

JAKARTA - Chairman of the MPR RI Bambang Soesatyo invites PT Jakarta Monorail, the Provincial Government of DKI Jakarta, as well as the central government through the Ministry of SOEs and the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing, to immediately sit down together to find the best solution in completing the Jakarta Monorail development project. Considering the construction project has been planned for a long time. It started during the reign of President Megawati Soekarnoputri, who inaugurated the construction of the Jakarta Monorail with the Governor of DKI Jakarta Sutiyoso on June 14, 2004.

In 2008, DKI Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo stopped the project. In June 2013, when DKI Jakarta was led by Governor Joko Widodo, work on the Jakarta Monorail project was resumed. Even on October 3, 2013, PT Jakarta Monorail agreed to cooperate with a Chinese SOE, China Communication Construction Company Ltd (CCCC) to develop the Jakarta Monorail project. The signing of the cooperation agreement was witnessed by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Shangrila Hotel, Jakarta. Unfortunately, the construction project was then stopped again in 2014 when DKI Jakarta was led by Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama. Until the change of leadership to Governor Anies Baswedan, the fate of the construction of the Jakarta Monorail project has not yet come to light.

"Before the project stalled, the consortium had built 90 units of Jakarta Monorail poles. They were spread out along Jalan Rasuna Said and Jalan Asia Afrika. The investment spent has reached Rp 300-400 billion. The total investment required is USD 1.5 billion or approx. Rp 15-16 trillion, without APBN/APBD, purely Business to Business. China Communication Construction Company Indonesia (CCCI) as an extension of China Communication Construction Company Ltd (CCCC) has prepared the Investment and only need too sort things out in Indonesia, then construction of the Jakarta Monorail can be completed immediately. It is even targeted to be completed before 2024," said Bamsoet after receiving the CCCI board of directors, in the Work Room of the Chairperson of the Indonesian People's Consultative Assembly, Jakarta, Monday (29/11/21).

The CCCI Directors who attended included President Director Wang Wei, Business Development Director Titien S. Syukur, Marketing Director Fan Wenhua, and Marketing Specialist Larisa Isara.

The chairman of the 20th DPR RI explained that the Jakarta Monorail is planned to have 28 stations with 2 depots. The track length reaches 28 Km. Along 14.3 km, it is on the Green Line which has 15 stations with 1 depot. The routes taken include Madya Stadium - Palmerah - Pejompongan - Karet Interchange - Sudirman Dukuh Atas - North Setiabudi - Kuningan Sentral - Casablanca Interchange - Patra Kuningan - Gatot Subroto - Satria Mandala - Komdak - SCBD - Gelora Bung Karno - Asia Africa - and ends at the North Setiabudi Depot.

"Along the other 13.7 Km Jakarta Monorail is located on Blue Lines which has 13 stations with 1 depot. The routes taken include Kampung Melayu - Tebet - Menteng Dalam - Casablanca Interchange - Prof. Dr. Satrio - Sudirman Sampoerna - Menara Batavia - Karet Interchange - Tanah Abang - Cideng - Kyai Caringin - Tomang - Orchid Garden - and ends at the West Flood Canal depot," explained Bamsoet.

The Head of the Law Enforcement, Security and Defense Relations Agency of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN) explained that the MRT and Transjakarta also cross the various routes traversed by the Jakarta Monorail. So it really helps the mobility of residents, encouraging residents to no longer use private vehicles. It also shows the world that the development of mass transportation in Indonesia is not inferior to other developed countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, and Japan.

"Completion of the Jakarta Monorail project can also help tidy up PT Adhi Karya's finances. It also shows the world that the state-owned construction company has successfully become part of the development of mass transportation. So that in the future there will be no more investors who are worried about investing in Indonesia, especially in collaborating with SOEs as an investment partner," explained Bamsoet.

The Deputy Chairperson of the Golkar Party emphasized that the completion of the Jakarta Monorail project also shows the world that the central government, regional governments, and state-owned enterprises can always synergize and cooperate with each other. Support each other.

"It strengthens Indonesia's position in the eyes of world investors. It shows the world that Indonesia is very serious in working on various development projects. So that not a single development project is stalled," concluded Bamsoet.

The Government Inaugurates the Makassar-Parepare Railway Line
Makassar, sulselprov.go.id — Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) inaugurated the operation of the Makassar-Parepare Inter-Maros-Barru train line, Wednesday, March 29 2023. The inauguration took place at the Maros Railway Depot, Maros Regency.

The President hopes that this railroad line will not only be a transportation option for the community but can also reduce logistics costs while at the same time increasing the competitiveness of South Sulawesi and Indonesia as well.

"If later there are really a lot of trains, there are for passengers, there are for tourism, there are for goods, this will give competitiveness, our country's competitiveness will be even better because goods are transported by cheap means of transportation," said President Jokowi.

Accompanying the President, among others, Coordinating Minister (Menko) Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, Minister of Transportation (Menhub) Budi Karya Sumadi, Cabinet Secretary (Seskab) Pramono Anung, Minister of Investment/Head of the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) Bahlil Lahadalia , as well as the Governor of South Sulawesi Andi Sudirman Sulaiman.

Meanwhile, the Governor of South Sulawesi, that the presence of this train is very welcome. Because it will facilitate people's mobility and logistics transportation.

“And of course this is very welcome. Because previously you had to bring your own vehicle to the airport, now there is a shuttle bus that connects to the train and goes straight to the airport," said Andi Sudirman.

One of the highlights is that the railway line in South Sulawesi passes through many tourist attractions. Among them, the Kars Rammang-Rammang Geopark which last year was nominated for the UNESCO Global Geopark (World Earth Park).

“Lots of tourists come. Incidentally, this terminal is connected to Rammang-Rammang," he explained.(*)
