Works for the east-west MRT rail stretching 84 kilometers between Cikarang in West Java province and Balaraja in Banten province are expected to commence next year at the latest, Coordinating Minister for the Economy Airlangga Hartarto said. The “strategic project” is estimated to cost Rp 160 trillion ($10.6 billion) to be funded mostly by Japanese investors.
