Governor Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo has given the green light for the construction of a new port in the Marunda area of North Jakarta, Indonesia.

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) on the port project was signed by Jokowi with Captain Bobby S Mamahit, the Transportation Ministry’s director general of sea transportation.

Sattar Taba, president of state-owned PT Kawasan Berikat Nusantara (KBN) said: “The development will cost around US$94.6 million in a total area of 140,000m2.”

He added the country's main port gateway, Tanjung Priok Port, had been operating at overcapacity, giving the project greater urgency to be completed.

He said: “Activities at Tanjung Priok Port are overwhelming and this condition has caused severe traffic jams on roads heading to the port.”
