Bandung subway? No way! Plans for an eight kilometer long subway in the city of Bandung, the capital of West Java Province, seem to be nothing more than a dream.

Constructing the eight kilometer of underground train track should cost around 1.2 trillion Rupiah (850 million euro)

Wet feet in North Jakarta, 3 It didn't get better when I carefully lifted the plastic flap and reached outside with my head. A driver on a motorbike which was in some kind of a hurry could hardly avoid me. In front of us a long row of red lights in the streets. Between the vehicles I could mainly see water and more nearby I heard the water gush out of the draining canal onto the pavement and the street. Ooh well, it must be raining heavily somewhere close, because it was quite an amount of water that came rushing towards us. Slowly the three wheels of the bajaj disappeared under water. I was hoping that the water would not reach too high at the end, because after over half an hour in this kind of transport, sitting becomes quite uncomfortable.

A visit to the Indonesian embassy It has been a short while, but still I think about that one day that I was headed for the Indonesian embassy in Kuala Lumpur. Because I had obtained a nice booklet of maps of the city, and I also bought a monthly card for the LRT (city trains), I would be able to drop in there to bring my paperwork. The embassy opened at nine o'clock in the morning, like usual, so if I would get up at around eight o'clock I would have enough time to prepare myself. That is what happened. Half past eight the alarm of my telephone went off and I took a short shower. The train station of Chinatown - that's the place where I found a nice little hotel for the week - was located at about 300 meters from the hotel. I waned to the central station of Kuala Lumpur (KL Sentral) because you can take the monorail from there. This route brought me in the direction of the Indonesian embassy, however I still had to walk quite some distance. With a bottle of water that should be possible however. I also got the chance to use the monorail trains, because waiting until the one in Jakarta is finished would mean I was able to go to Kuala Lumpur a few more times, because that one won't be ready for some time being, if I read the stories about that.

Indonesia's monorail struggles to get on track Gridlocked cars. Noxious traffic fumes. Indonesia's capital is crying out for a new transport network, but stop-start plans for a monorail illustrate the country's chequered efforts to build badly needed infrastructure. The idea of a gleaming monorail gliding above the congested tropical city of nearly 9 million people is an enticing one and proponents point to neighbouring Bangkok's Skytrain or Kuala Lumpur's monorail in at least easing equally grim transport woes.

City told to focus on monorail, not turnpike With the government issuing a letter guaranteeing its support for the monorail project, activists and experts called on the city administration Friday to focus on the project rather than a plan to build six inner city turnpikes. Tubagus Haryo Karbyanto of the Jakarta Environment Caucus said the support from the central government meant the administration needed to prioritize the construction of secure and comfortable mass transportation rather than building turnpikes, which would only worsen Jakarta's traffic conditions.

Monorail may offer some relief to Jakarta WHEN Jakarta Governor Sutiyoso flew to Kuching, Malaysia, last week to sign a deal for a monorail project worth US$400 million (S$704 million) for the Indonesian capital, it heralded a belated move to set up some sort of credible mass transit system in the gridlocked, polluted city of 12 million people. Jakarta is one of the last major metropolises in South-east Asia without an underground railway network. Blueprints have been drawn up in recent years, but were shelved at the onset of the Asian economic meltdown in late 1997.
