AECOM’s multidisciplinary team is working together to solve the prolonged and complex traffic issues in Jakarta’s downtown areas.

As a growing city, transportations issues have risen significantly in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta. Without major breakthrough in transport infrastructure, Jakarta’s traffic will be in total jam in 2020 and this will cost the city 65 trillion rupiah per year.

In the planning stages for more than 20 years, Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) is envisaged to alleviate the gridlock in the heart of a greater metro area which houses almost 30 million people.

The Jakarta MRT will stretch across 110.8 kilometers. This includes 23.8 kilometers for the North-South Corridor (Lebak Bulus – Kampung Bandan) and 87 kilometers for East-West Corridor. Japan International Cooperation Agency is funding the first phase of the Jakarta MRT which comprises seven elevated stations and six underground stations along 15.7 kilometers of the South-North Corridor from Lebak Bulus to Bunderan HI.

AECOM is providing a wide range of design services for the construction of three elevated stations in South Jakarta, an 8.8-hectare depot and a 6-kilometers long viaduct. Our multidisciplinary team is responsible for structural, civil, geotechnical, mechanical, electrical and plumbing and architectural design with provision of noise studies.
