Report from journalist, Danang Triatmojo

TRIBUN-VIDEO.COM, JAKARTA - The leadership of the DKI DPRD carried out an inspection of the revitalization site of the Medan Merdeka area on the south side of Monas on Tuesday (28/1) afternoon.

Chairman of the DKI Jakarta DPRD Prasetio Edi Marsudi, Deputy Chairman of the DKI DPRD Zita Anjani, and DKI Regional Secretary Saefullah conducted an inspection of the location together from 16.18 WIB to 18.00 WIB.

During their inspection of the location, Prasetio and other DKI DPRD leaders found a hole measuring 1 square meter which appeared to be covered in cement.

Suddenly he immediately asked the contractor's workers to dismantle the square hole which turned out to be a water channel.

"Let's try to dismantle this, I want to see whether this is true or not," said Prasetio at the location.

After demolition was carried out to prove the statement from the DKI Provincial Government, it turned out that the channel only had a depth of around 40 centimeters and was shaped like the letter U. As a result, seeing this, Prasetio was surprised by the DKI Provincial Government's work.

With such shallow channels, this PDI-Perjuangan politician said that the waterlogging at Monas would be impossible to overcome.

"If it's like this, it could flood," he said.

Head of the Cipta Karya Spatial Planning and Land Service, Heru Hermawanto, who was at the location, explained that the land that will be used as a plaza is slanted to the left and right.

So that the water that pools in the middle will flow into the absorption ponds on the right and left of the plaza.
