Bambang Haryo Soekartono, a lawmaker of the House’s Commission V overseeing transportation and communication, meanwhile, expressed hopes that the remaining six train sets could be completed soon.

“They should be finished this April. I hope INKA is up for this, because the train sets must commence operation this August for the Asian Games,” he said during a work visit to PT INKA in Madiun, East Java, on Thursday.

Bambang also asked state-owned railway operator PT KAI to inspect the necessary infrastructure for the LRT in Palembang to ensure seamless progress.
