MRT construction to be delayed

Construction of the Mass Rapid Transportation (MRT) project in Jakarta will be most probably delayed for around two years as the second phase of the agreement with Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) has not been signed. Originally, it was planned to start construction by end of 2008 so that Jakarta residents would be able to use MRT by 2010. “We hope the second phase of the project will be started end of 2009 or 2010”, said Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo yesterday (22/9). The MRT route will run from Lebak Bulus to Dukuh Atas for a distance of 14.3 kilometers.
