New Jakarta terminal

New Jakarta terminal

Jakarta: Indonesia's state port firm will start building a new container terminal in Jakarta this year. The first phase of the 22 trillion rupiah ($2.45 billion) project is expected to be completed in two years.
The terminal project is part of a government plan to expand Jakarta's main Tanjung Priok port.
"Tanjung Priok's volume at this moment is nearly congested, very high, so if we are not ready within two years, it will be a big problem," said Richard Lino, president director of state port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo) II.
The first phase will have a capacity of 1.5 million teu, with Lino aiming to finish the full port in the next five to six years. Reclamation work will be done in Kali Baru Utara, North Jakarta, for the 270-hectare terminal. [13/08/10]
