The Government of Indonesia has signed three agreements with international governments to develop the planned extensions on the Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line. These include a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) signed with the Government of Japan for work on the line’s East-West corridor.
A letter of intent (LoI) has also been signed with the Government of the United Kingdom (UK) for upcoming works on the MRT line while a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed with the Government of South Korea for works on the Phase 4 corridor, covering the section between Fatmawati and Taman Mini Indonesia Indah.
Jakarta MRT Phase 4 will add 12 km to the urban rail network and will be integrated with the city’s existing LRT Jabodebek and KCI – Commuter line. Construction on this phase is expected to commence in 2023. Once operational, around 124,000 passengers are expected to use the corridor daily.
The 87-km-long East – West corridor is expected to be key in reducing congestion in Jakarta. Work will be carried out in two phases and will be funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
