PT Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and Alsom, a global leader in sustainable solutions, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to join hands and work on the development of future MRT network phases in Jakarta. In the initial phase, both parties plan to engage in discussions and exchange information related to suitable railway systems and procurement schemes for Jakarta’s MRT system.
Jakarta, the highly populous city, plans to grow its network to 235 kilometers and reduce traffic congestion while improving the air quality. The next phase of this expansion includes MRT Phase 3 East-West Line, which will span 87 kilometers across the Greater Jakarta Region, comprising 40 stations. Jakarta, with help from Alsom, plans to achieve this by 2035.
