These funds will be utilized to construct the first phase of a four-track railway line between Manggarai and Bekasi.
“The funds have not been spent because we are still negotiating with land owners,” Yoyo Sulaiman, head of the project, said yesterday (11/6) in Jakarta.
Japan, Yoyo said, has asked that there will not be any tender offered to any parties if the team has not finished negotiating with land owners.
“So, if the lands have already been purchased, we'll carry out the tenders,” he said.
Yoyo said he plans that the first phase of land purchasing will be accomplished this year.
As for the second phase, he has cannot yet confirm when the purchase will be completed.
