I want to write some story here with English again, just try to improve my writing in English, maybe still not properly, but I hope you as the reader can understand what i have wrote here hehe
Now, as a usual, in Saturday night after I have a class of MBA Programme in MM UGM, I go to the Gambir Station and then go to Bandung by the Train, actually now I stayed with my family in Padalarang, West Bandung. Just for weekend we regularly meet together…how a quality time is it. This called the pursuit of happiness, because family is my happiness
There is a big plan from the government to provide Fast Train (Kereta Cepat) from Jakarta to Bandung in 2019. The latest I known, the tender has been done in 2017, and the project goes to Chinese one, after compete with the Japanese one and the project has been launching also by the president of Indonesia Joko Widodo, the first stone take in West Bandung also, if I not mistaken in area of Cikalong Wetan.
But if we searching progress of that project I think there are less information can be found, more popular is another project of infrastructure in preparation of Asian Games 2018 that will held in Jakarta and Palembang in August 2018. Or the LRT, MRT and highway project that on going process that targetted done by this year.
I imagine if there is Fast Train destination form Jakarta to Bandung that only need time for approximately 45 minutes, although the ticket price maybe 100% or 200% higher than Argo Parahyangan, can make a lot of people curious and want to try it, and after that will going normal with exactly segmented people will use the train. The more train with the more schedule in the future can decreasing the price, make it more affordable.
If that kind of situation happened, Bandung will effected significantly in population, it must be anticipated then, to avoid problem in traffic jam, in infrastructure capacity in the city, also about environmental issues. In the economic perspective, off course there are so many opportunities will come, and can increases the income in the region.
