Indonesia: Tanjung Priok Port Expansion Faces Delays

Tanjung Priok Port Expansion Faces Delays

The Rp 22.6 trillion ($2.4 billion) expansion of Tanjung Priok Port in North Jakarta is facing delays, according to thejakartaglobe.com.

A senior executive at state port operator Pelindo II said: „These delays are because of the failure of the Transportation Ministry to issue concession permits.

About the project

The Kalibaru project will involve the construction of a Rp 22.6 trillion port, called New Priok, in Kalibaru, seven kilometers west of Tanjung Priok.

This major project will include three container terminals, an oil and gas terminal and a seven-kilometer toll road linking it to Tanjung Priok. Pelindo II was appointed by the government to build and operate Kalibaru.

Pelindo II already had a construction permit and could break ground on the project without the concession permits,“ Richard J. Lino, president director of Pelindo II said.

It can be done,” he said. “They can take care of the concession permits while simultaneously working on the project.
