BANDUNG - Provincial Government (Pemprov) of West Java handles the repairment process of national road which is collapsed immediately. The road collapsed is on the route of Kuningan - Majalengka.
Ahmad Heryawan as the Governor of West Java said that although the instruction had been not given by the Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Ministry yet, his parties from Bina Marga Road Agency of West Java brought in heavy equipments to the location immediately.
"Before being asked by the Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Ministry, we have already helped to decrease the road collapsed. Although the road belongs to the state, however the location is still in West Java. So that, it can inhibit citizens' activities," he said to reporters in Bandung, Saturday (2/18/2017).
Heryawan said that the road that connected Cirebon - Ciamis via Kuningan Regency and Cikijing Sub-district, Majalengka Regency was originally the authority of Provincial Governement of West Java, but in 2016 the authority had been taken by the central government.
"It is true since 2016 the road has belonged to the state. Although the road belongs to the state, but it is still in West Java so it can inhibit citizens' activities," he said.
According to him, Bina Marga Road Agency of West Java was repairing the road by constructing water channel under it if any obstruction had been found. Then we hilled the road up immediately so that the road could be reconstructed again.
When he was asked about the plan to finish the road collapsed repairment, the Governor of West Java would do coordination with the Head of Bina Marga Road Agency of West Java.
"We will ask first to Mr. Guntoro as the Head of Bina Marga Road Agency of West Java about when the repairment process will be over," he concluded.
