REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- The Jakarta administration's construction company PT Jakarta Propertindo (Jakpro) has announced that it plans to conduct a test driving of the city's Light Rail Transit (LRT) Corridor 1 on Aug 15. The date is five days later from a former announcement last month made by Jakpro that the LRT will open on Aug 10.

Dwi Wagyu Daryoto, executive director of Jakpro, the main company responsible for the construction project of LRT Jakarta and the Asian Games' stadiums, announced its plan at a press conference here on Thursday. The route connects Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta, to Velodrome, East Jakarta.

The LRT's minimal daily capacity is expected to reach 11,000 passengers, and it is believed to ease the burden of the already heavy traffic in Jakarta, Jakpro Director Hendra Lesmana stated.

As for the construction of sporting stadium, the construction of Jakarta International Velodrome has been 100 percent completed, while Jakarta International Equestrian Park Pulomas has already started to operate since Aug 2, Daryoto noted.

For LRT Jakarta, 82.06 percent of the infrastructure and 85.57 percent of the facility have been completed, and the operational readiness is 91 percent.

The developer is currently speeding up the construction of additional facilities. But in terms of the certification proceedings, the Indonesian Ministry Transpiration Ministry has not yet issued an Operation Recommendation.

Aside from Jakpro, Indonesian state-owned construction company PT Wijaya Karya Tbk (Wika) is another major contractor of the Asian Games to build infrastructures around Jakarta and Palembang.
