Tribudi said the MRT project is already initiated since 1985. But only realized in 2005. "This project was not run due to financial problems. Now was there a commitment from Japan, can walk. Moreover, Vice President (Boediono,) requesting accelerated," said Tribudi.

So, said Tribudi, despite changes of government or the transfer of capital, even if the project was still road. "It's already committed G to G. All of the schedule will be operational 2016," he said.
