Kini Beroperasi KMP Lakaan, Layani Penyeberangan Lintas Kupang – Ndao

(Beritadaerah – NTT) Sebagai realisasi program Nawacita Nawacita ke-tiga yaitu untuk membangun Indonesia dari pinggiran dengan memperkuat daerah-daerah dalam kerangka negara kesatuan, pada Rabu (10/5) Direktur Jenderal Perhubungan Darat Kementerian Perhubungan (Kemenhub) Pudji Hartanto meresmikan KMP Lakaan. Acara peresmian KMP Lakaan ini juga di hadiri oleh Dirut PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry, Faik Fahmi.

KMP Lakaan, adalah kapal penyeberangan penumpang roro berbobot 750 GT yang secara resmi melayani lintas Kupang – Pulau Rote – Ndao, NTT. Dengan KMP Lakaan maka perjalanan dari Kupang ke Ndao memotong waktu dari 12 jam melalui perjalanan darat menjadi hanya 4 jam saja melalui laut.

Pudji Hartanto mengemukakan, pengembangan transportasi penyeberangan diarahkan sebagai pembuka isolasi dan mendorong kegiatan ekonomi, serta secara bertahap perannya akan saling mendukung dengan transportasi jalan.

Lebih lanjut Pudji menjelaskan, KMP Lakaan 750 GT ini dibangun dengan dana APBN melalui skema kontrak tahun jamak (multi years contract) tahun 2015 hingga 2016. “Kapal ini dibangun di galangan kapal PT Industri Kapal Indonesia (PT IKI Persero), Makassar dengan total investasi Rp34,9 miliar.

“KMP Lakaan akan dioperasikan oleh PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry (Persero) yang melayani lintas Kupang (Bolok) – Pantai Baru (Rote) dan Pantai Baru (Rote) – Ndao. Untuk lintas Rote – Ndao karena merupakan lintas perintis, maka akan ada subsidi anggaran dari pemerintah,” jelas Pudji.

Dengan beroperasinya KMP Lakaan, maka kapal penyeberangan yang beroperasi di NTT telah mencapai 11 kapal, yaitu 3 kapal dioperasikan oleh Pemda melalui BUMD Flobamor dan 8 kapal dioperasikan oleh PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry (Persero) dengan rincian 6 kapal melayani lintas perintis dan 2 kapal melayani lintas komersial.

Selain itu Pudji juga mengatakan bahwa sesuai Renstra Kementerian Perhubungan 2015-2019, di wilayah NTT masih terdapat pembangunan 1 unit kapal penyeberangan untuk melayani lintas Pamana – Kawapante yang belum terealisasi karena keterbatasan anggaran. “Namun saat ini di lintas Pamana – Kawapante telah dilakukan optimalisasi pelayanan dengan menggunakan KMP Namparnos,” kata Pudji.

Diakuinya, saat ini masih banyak kebutuhan sarana dan prasarana transportasi di kawasan timur Indonesia khususnya di provinsi NTT. “Kondisi geografis di sini memang membutuhkan jenis moda transportasi yang dapat mengakomodir perlintasan antar pulau.”
