" We support Kelapa Gading-Velodrome LRT as Asian Games 2018 facility"
City Council Commission C Vice Chairman, James Arifin Sianipar said dividends acquisition on LRT construction should be a long term plan projected by Jakpro.
"We support Kelapa Gading-Velodrome LRT as Asian Games 2018 facility. But we must also think about its next development," he said, Thursday (8/7).
According to him, LRT route extension analysis is needed to add more advantages from this rail-based mass transportation project.
He believes by extending the route, LRT will be more effective and beneficial for communities. This is also can ease government in calculating the amount of ticket subsidies that will be given to PT. Jakpro.
"This project is still need cash injection from Government Equity Participation (PMP). Its subsidy and investment return must be considered also," he closed.
