BANDUNG-Acting (Acting) West Java Governor H. Mochamad Iriawan initiated the construction of a flyover project from Pasirkoja to Pasupati in Bandung City. If this is realized it can be one of the bottleneck solutions.
Iriawan admitted that his party had communicated with the Minister of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) RI Basuki Hadimuljono some time ago in Jakarta. However, he has not presented in detail about the idea to the Minister of PUPR.
This was stated by Iriawan in his remarks when he attended the Routine Study of Echelon of West Java Provincial Government after the Shubuh Prayers at Al Muttaqin Mosque Gedung Sate, Jl. Diponegoro No. 22, Bandung City, Monday (8/20/18).
"The time left for me (being Acting Governor of West Java) is one less bone, I will use the maximum for my service to West Java that I love," said Iriawan.
"I have the idea of ??building a flyover from Pasirkoja to Pasupati. In particular, I have reported to the Minister of PUPR, he explicitly agreed. But I haven't exposed it before him, "he explained.
This flyover is expected to become a traffic jam, especially from the South to North and Central areas in Bandung City. In addition, said Iriawan, this flyover could be the pride and additional icon of the city nicknamed the Flower City.
This flyover is planned to be built along 15.3 km with the required budget of approximately Rp 6 trillion. However, the financing scheme will not use APBN or APBD funds.
"Apparently there are investors who believe in me. He (investor) will wake up but indeed the median of the road has a province or city. This needs to be guarded so that in the city there is an overpass of 15.3 km," said Iriawan.
"We do not spend money but we can benefit, then become icons. Please pray," he asked.
West Java Sports Center
On this occasion, Iriawan also mentioned about his desire West Java has an integrated sports center such as Jakabaring in Palembang City, South Sumatra. This is related to the absence of the name of West Java in the nomenclature of the 2018 Jakarta Asian Games in Palembang.
"In particular we did meet with Mr. Erick Thohir, that an apology to the people of West Java is related to the name of the Jakarta Palembang Asian Games nomenclature," said Iriawan.
During the meeting with Erick Thohir, Chair of the Indonesian Asian Games Organizing Committee (Inasgoc), Iriawan also asked Erick Thohir about the absence of the name of West Java in the 2018 Asian Games nomenclature.
"Why is there no West Java? I asked Mr. Erick Tohir. Indeed, the Asian Games committee must be one, like the Seoul Asian Games, Tokyo Asian Games, Bombay Asian Games. Two (cities) are rare, like Jakarta Palembang. If three is not possible. That is the nomenclature, "said Iriawan.
"If in Jakarta, everything is in Jakarta, sports (sports). Palembang is also in Jakabaring, a unity all (centered) there (Jakabaring). If in West Java there are in Bandung, Purwakarta, Subang, then Majalengka, Bekasi and it is impossible to mention all cities. So, that's about explanation from Mr. Erick Thohir, "he explained.
Therefore, Iriawan has the idea to create a center for integrated sports areas such as Jakabaring in Palembang. Iriawan claimed he would coordinate with various related parties regarding the plan, and would communicate with the Indonesian Minister of Youth and Sports.
"Therefore, starting from this experience yesterday I thought why we didn't make a concentrated sports arena there, like Jakabaring in Palembang. How come Palembang can but West Java can't yet? "Said Iriawan.
"Even though the Bandung Ocean Ocean Fire event is quite large, then Jalak Harupat is big enough to be able to accommodate the existing sports centers, so that later if possible later there will be an Olympics, we can also propose that there be a name of one name among the existing Jakarta City. That's my idea, "he concluded.
