INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Repair of Mutiara Airport SIS Al Jufri Palu runway costs up to Rp60 billion.

"The cost on the side of runway 33 is around Rp60 billion, while on the side of the runway 15 the construction is underway, so there are no specific costs," Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi said at a press conference in Jakarta on Wednesday (03/10/2018)

He explained that the runway 33 needed reconstruction because of severe damage and there were faults in the target with depths of up to four meters. So, he continued, the reconstruction would take four months.

"The length of the runway is effective to 2,250 meters after the repair of runway 15," he said.

Meanwhile, minor damage on runway 15 is being repaired and will be completed in seven to 10 days. So, he continued, the runway can be operated immediately with dimensions of 2,250 meters x 45 meters, where B737 800/900 aircraft can operate.

"We will cooperate with all parties, namely PP contractors and the Ministry of PUPR," he said.

Meanwhile, Budi said that for the repair of the terminal itself it would cost Rp10-20 billion.

"Construction is related to the terminal of Rp10-20 billion," he said.

He explained the repair of the terminal after an evaluation of two to three weeks for cleaning and repair due to structural damage.

For the land side, the terminal structure is being checked which involves the Ministry of PUPR to assess its structural feasibility.
