JAKARTA - Four mining companies, PT Antang Gunung Meratus, PT Binuang Mitra Bersama, PT Hasnur Jaya International and PT Talenta Bumi signed a cooperation agreement with the Directorate General of Bina Marga of Ministry of Public Works and Housing to build a three flyover and one bridge in South Kalimantan.

All of the flyovers and bridges are built on Marabahan-Margasari national road, South Kalimantan. The signing was conducted at Directorate General of Bina Marga office, Jakarta on Wednesday (5/7) evening witnessed by Director General of Bina Marga Arie Setiadi Moerwanto and Director of Bridge of the Directorate General of  Bina Marga Iwan Zarkasih.

This infrastructure project development is a form of corporate social responsibility (CSR) from the company which operates in South Kalimantan. Arie Setiadi Moerwanto explained that the concept of bridge/flyover infrastructure development as a form of corporate CSR will also be applied in other areas.

If the company in South Kalimantan is operating in the mining sector, the companies in Central and West Kalimantan which invited to cooperate is from palm oil sector. "We learn from South Kalimantan, we will also try to apply it in Bengkulu and South Sumatera which facing the same problem," said Arie Setiadi Moerwanto as reported by pu.go.id (7/7/2017).

This cooperation is very useful because there are still limited government funds to build road and bridge infrastructure. Head of National Road Implementation Agency (BBPJN) Region XI Sugiyartanto explained, for now, the construction of three flyovers and one bridge will already enter the phase of physical construction.
