Sugi said, even though the construction was carried out by the contractor appointed directly by the mining company and was not bound by the Presidential Regulation (Perpres) Number 54 of 2010 concerning Government Procurement of Goods / Services because it did not use APBN funds, it continued to provide technical design approval and advice. technical and supervision during the construction process.
"We keep a close readiness of the criteria for the design, but it must be design-worthy. We have accompanied from the beginning. Because later on after the construction, flyovers and bridges are completed, there will be a grant process to become the assets of Bina Marga, we will be able to function properly, "he continued.
