LRT Palembang Siap Beroperasi Juni 2018

(Beritadaerah – Palembang) Pemerintah melalui Kementerian Perhubungan (Kemenhub) memastikan kereta ringan atau Light Rail Transit (LRT) di Palembang, Sumatra Selatan (Sumsel), akan mulai beroperasi pada bulan Juni 2018. Sebelum beroperasi resmi, akan dilakukan uji coba operasi antara Maret hingga Mei 2018 mendatang.

“Akhir Februari kereta sudah datang, kita mulai commisioning bulan Maret sampai Mei,” kata Menteri Perhubungan (Menhub) Budi K. Sumadi usai meninjau proyek pembangunan LRT di Jakabaring, Palembang, Senin (22/1) kemarin.

LRT Palembang akan memiliki 3 (tiga) titik keberangkatan, yaitu di Jakabaring, Bandara, dan Lippo. Sementara harga tiket ditetapkan Rp5 ribu. Jika harga tiket tersebut tidak mencukupi untuk menutup biaya operasional LRT, menurut Menhub, kelebihan dari biaya itu menjadi beban dari Pemerintah.

Guna mendukung beroperasinya LRT Palembang pada Juni mendatang, Menhub mengaku pihaknya sudah melakukan berbagai persiapan. “Kita sudah menunjuk konsultan integrator yang akan mengintegrasikan semua fungsi dan kepentingan di sini karena fasilitas ini merupakan yang terbaru di Indonesia,” ujarnya.

Menhub meminta para stakeholder untuk aktif melakukan koordinasi terkait feeder dan transit oriented development (TOD) agar manajemen perkotaan dapat berfungsi dengan baik dan memberikan pendapatan bagi kota.

Ditegaskan bahwa pembangunan LRT bukan hanya untuk menyambut Asian Games tetapi juga diharapkan menjadi transportasi massal perkotaan.

“Sebenarnya kalau membangun (LRT) bukan hanya untuk Asian Games. Itu hanya pemicu, namun dibangunnya LRT di Palembang sebagai suatu contoh penggunaan transportasi massal di perkotaan,” jelas Menhub.

Oleh karenanya, Menhub ingin Pemda serius dalam mempersiapkan rute dan titik TOD dengan baik sehingga masyarakat dapat merubah pola hidup dengan meninggalkan moda angkutan yang lama. Adanya LRT juga diharapkan menjadi solusi kemacetan di wilayah perkotaan serta meningkatkan mobilitas serta pendapatan masyarakat.

Menurut Menhub Budi K, Pemerintah berencana membangun LRT di 4 (empat) kota berikutnya yang penduduknya mencapai 2 juta, yaitu Bandung, Makassar, Surabaya, dan Medan.

“Empat kota itu yang menjadi prioritas untuk dibangun LRT. Kalau yang sudah ada feasibility study-nya adalah Surabaya, Bandung dan Medan,” kata Menhub.
