While the two segments of the railway train is fast Bandung-Jakarta and commuter light rail transit (LRT) which covers the Greater Jakarta area.

According to Aher, referring to information from the Secretary of West Java province Iwa Karniwa, toll Bocimi along 54 kilometers has been running well since the land acquisition stage one has reached 133 hectares of the needs of 144 hectares or 92 percent. While the actual physical construction reached 3.18 percent.

“But the interesting part of Bocimi is a strategic private investor that makes getting stronger. After the MNC Group, the new entry PT Waskita long toll road business. God willing, it paved the construction of the future, so congestion in the area could be unraveled, “he said.

Aher continued, Toll Cisumker now ongoing pursuit of targets completed in conjunction with the completion of the West Java International Airport in 2017 or 2018.

West Java provincial government has asked the central government ie the Ministry of Public Works to immediately allocate funds construction of section I in the year 2016 amounted to Rp1.8 trillion.

Section I, which includes wilyaha Cileunyi-Rancakalong has reached 31 percent, or about 134 hectares. Long section of the highway that are in the South West Java reached 12.025 percent.

The project is expected to be built more quickly than other types of trains because the construction can be done on land owned space of toll and non-toll roads, so that the land acquisition often a wedge could be expedited.

“Simultaneously, the development of fast trains in Jakarta, Bandung is also a positive signal. Last week, we’ve met Mr. Hanggoro Dwi (Director of PT Kereta Quick Indonesia China, red) which mentions the development plan is still on track, “he said.
