Indonesia’s Widodo reiterates support for Jakarta monorail


Indonesia’s president-elect Joko Widodo on Wednesday (Aug 20) reiterated his support for the construction of a monorail system in Jakarta.

Mr Widodo said a mass transportation system like the Jakarta Eco Transport Monorail (JET) is much needed for the capital of Indonesia, according to a statement from Singaporean transport operator SMRT International.

SMRT is part of the consortium PT Jakarta Monorail, which is involved in the planning and construction of the monorail project. The consortium and Mr Widodo met at a project progress meeting at Jakarta City hall on Wednesday.

“SMRT is pleased that the project has been given new momentum with the support of (Mr Widodo), and we look forward to working with our consortium partners and local government officials to bring the project to fruition,” said Desmond Kuek, SMRT’s president and group CEO.

The consortium was formed in 2013, after the monorail project was revived. The project was abandoned in 2008 due to financial issues and legal disputes.
