PEKANBARU: Pekanbaru has been selected to receive its seventh consecutive Adipura award for being the cleanest city, an official said Monday.
The award will be presented by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the State Palace in Jakarta on Tuesday.
The Pekanbaru administration’s acting secretary, Raja Dorman Johan, said the key to this year’s award was the
evaluation on the Bandar Raya Payung Sekaki (BRPS) bus terminal. Cleanliness at the integrated bus terminal topped other bus terminals in other cities throughout Indonesia, he said.
“The BRPS terminal was chosen as the best location in line with the evaluation of its cleanliness, physical construction, orderliness and convenience for the passengers when entering or exiting the buses,” Dorman said Monday. — JP
