Jakartans! We'll Have Our Own MRT!


And so I read the news on Kompas today (click on the picture at the end of the post for complete article) and Jakarta will start building MRT in 2012! What a joy to hear in such a gloomy and dark-weathered Friday. Good news goood newss.

So let me shorten it out for you. Actually the Ministry of Public Work & PT MRT Jakarta has planned out the blueprint (underground tunnels, stations & stops) since 2008. Currently they are finalizing the design expecting to finish end of this year. Will start opening tender for the construction in 2011 and hopefully start building in 2012. The very first line will be from Lebak Bulus all the way to Bundaran HI. The rest of the line is expected to finish by 2016. Yeaaayyy!

Anyway, I don't know if its a coincidence, but earlier this morning on the way to office, I was listening to Ps. Jose's message about Imagining the Un-imaginable (Membayangkan Yang Tidak Terbayangkan) about their vision seeing Indonesia becoming a great nation that not only depending on others help but can also influence other nations. That was their vision years ago, now back to the news, I can see we're going in the right progress, let's put aside speed for a while, maybe its only Jakarta but this is enough to amuse me. Let's pray for the best (you know what this means, supaya tidak hanya berhenti di wacana, tapi berlanjut ke laksana). =)

Smile on, Shine on!

    Harusnya benar! "PT" berarti badan usahanya swasta dan tidak terikat pemerintah. Kalo pemerintah kan pasti ada 'persero' atau sejenisnya. Let's pray for this city! G udah muak ama trafficnya. --"
