Batam-Bintan Bridge to be Built in 2021, Minister of PUPR Explains the Current Progress
Minister of PUPR, Basuki Hadimuljono revealed, the Batam-Bintan Bridge (Babin) project is in the stage of maturing the design details.
According to Basuki, the detailed design itself had been made by the Batam City Government. However, the details of this design still need further study.
Because the Babin bridge is crossing the sea, so it must be done very carefully.
To realize the Bridge, which was designed for 6.79 kilometers, large funds are needed.
The cost of constructing the Babin bridge itself is estimated to reach Rp. 3 trillion to Rp. 4 trillion with a multiyears contract.
Basuki continued, the construction of the Babin bridge is one of the programs implemented under the Government Cooperation with Business Entity (KPBU) scheme.
The assurance was conveyed by Jokowi to the Ad-interim Governor of the Riau Islands, Isdianto, before his return to Jakarta from Raden Sadjad Airport, Ranai, Natuna Regency, Riau Islands. (*)
