    and: Kalla-Says-Jakarta LRT Not Ready for Asian Games

    Earlier, Vice President Jusuf Kalla said it is impossible to operate LRT Jakarta during the games because the construction could not be completed in a short time.

    "The LRT cannot be used for the Asian Games. There are only four months remaining. There are six venues in Jakarta such as Senayan, Kemayoran, Sunter that cannot wait [for LRT]," Kalla said.

    The LRT project was planned to transport the 2018 Asian Games contingent in Jakarta and Palembang. However, the construction in Jakarta has not been completed thus far.
