Depok in West Java is planning to build its own light rail transit (LRT) system connecting Cibubur and Pondok Cina in a bid to improve connectivity in the area. 

Depok Transportation Agency head Dadang Wihana said that according to current plans, which are based on the Greater Jakarta Transportation Master Plan (RITJ) issued through a 2018 presidential regulation, the railway would be completed by 2022.

A feasibility study has been carried out by the Greater Jakarta Transportation Body (BPTJ), he said as quoted by kompas.com.

The project is estimated to cost Rp 600 billion (US$42 million).

“The budget has been proposed to the city administration, provincial administration, the Transportation Ministry and parties from the private sector […] The biggest proportion will come from private [companies],” Dadang said.

The LRT connecting Cawang in East Jakarta to Cibubur will have a trial run between March and April. (fac)
