MRT explains the reasons for the increase in the budget of the phase 2 project to Rp 25.3 T


PT MRT Jakarta explained the reason for the rising cost of Phase 2 construction of the north-south Jakarta MRT from Rp 22 trillion to Rp 25.3 trillion. Silvia Halim, construction director of MRT Jakarta, explained that the cost of 22 trillion rupees was an estimate compiled in 2018 with the HI-Kampung Bandan roundabout route.

“The initial estimate of Rp 22 trillion has now become Rp 25.3 trillion. Why? The estimate of Rp 22 trillion is an estimate made in 2018. At that time it was still in the planning stage. At that time, the route discussed came from HI roundabout to Kampung Bandan Depot was also discussed at Kampung Bandan depot, ”Silvia said at the Jakarta MRT Journalists Forum in Wisma Nusantara, Central Jakarta, on Tuesday (9/20/2022).

Currently, he said, the location of the warehouse MRT Phase two was moved from previously planned in Kampung Bandan with a total track length of 7.8 km, to Ancol with a total line length of 6.3 km for phase 2A and 6 km for phase 2B. In other words, the cost of Rp 25.3 T is the actual contract value for the CP201, CP202 and CP 203 MRT projects.
