KONTAN.CO.ID - BEKASI. Bekasi municipality has called on the West Java administration to involve it in the Kalimalang rehabilitation project, claiming it has been planning to give the waterway a face-lift for two years.

“We made a Detail Engineer Design (DED) for Kalimalang in 2016. We have been intending to start the project next year,” said Bekasi Environment Agency head Jumhana Luthfi on Thursday as quoted by

“Now that we know [West Java Governor] Ridwal Kamil has a similar vision, we have to synergize ours with his,” he added.

Jumhana said that the city planned to revamp the man-made Kalimalang along Jl. Hasibuan in South Bekasi to Jl. Caman in Jatibening. The revamp would include parks, water fountains, sidewalks and the Candrabhaga bridge along the river.

Kalimalang, initially named Saluran Induk Irigasi Tarum Barat (Main Stream of Tarum Barat Irrigation) runs from Curug Dam through East Jakarta.

Jumhana also said that the city administration would summon prominent Bekasi figures to discuss the plan.

Newly inaugurated Bekasi Mayor Rahmat Effendi urged Ridwan Kamil to take a look at the city’s Kalimalang renovation project before implementing his.

“[Ridwan Kamil] has to check out our DED. Kalimalang is in our area,” he said.

Earlier this month, Ridwan Kamil revealed that the provincial administration would allocate up to Rp 50 billion (US$3.4 million) to turn Kalimalang into a world-class tourist destination – just like the Cheonggyecheon in Seoul.
