After weeks of uncertainty, the Jakarta administration has revealed it will move forward with the plan to construct the city’s first Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line next year.

In his speech during a plenary meeting at the City Council on Thursday, Jakarta Governor Joko “Jokowi” Widodo listed the MRT project as one of his administration’s priority programs for 2013. The governor submitted the 2013 budget draft during the plenary session.


Your comments:

It is a great move, at least to end the prolonged feasibility discussions. Jokowi’s next project should be to persuade motorcyclists to use the MRT even though the MRT’s fare will be much more expensive than a motorcycle’s operating costs for a week.
