West Jakarta will build more child-friendly integrated public spaces (RPTRA) after receiving a positive response from residents, an official has said.

The plan to develop 10 new RPTRAs next year on land belonging to the Jakarta administration was suggested by the subdistricts administrations, West Jakarta Public Housing and Residence Agency head Taufik said on Monday.

“The new RPTRAs will also be equipped with facilities […] such as a library and a children’s park,” he said as quoted by

The RPTRA was one of signature programs of former Jakarta governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama.

Taufik said that the agency had proposed a budget of Rp 13 billion (US$957 million) to the Jakarta Regional Development Board (Bappeda).

Currently, there are 56 RPTRAs spread across seven districts in West Jakarta.

“Development on the 20 RPTRAs built using the 2017 regional budget has reached 95 percent. Some of them, like RPTRA Wijayakusuma, Menara, KS Tubun and Manunggal, are now open to the public,” he said. (rdi)
