"(The embankment development) is running until 2027, as there are still vulnerable points that do not have the embankment," Acting Governor of Jakarta Heru Budi Hartono remarked here on Tuesday.
He revealed that the provincial government has the right to build 11.1 kilometers out of the planned 20.2-kilometer embankment.
"Local governments (have the authority to build) around 0.5 km, and this would increase to 1.59 km in 2022," he noted.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) is also working on a 9.1-kilometer embankment on the northern coast of Jakarta until 2024.
The Jakarta provincial government has estimated that the budget needed for construction of the embankment or the National Capital Integrated Coastal Development (NCICD) on the north coast of Jakarta reached Rp1.38 trillion for the length of 8.3 km out of the total 11.1 km.
For the remaining 2.8 km, its construction authority was proposed to be under state-run port operator PT Pelindo II or the Sunda Kelapa Harbormaster and Port Authority Office (KSOP).
The 2.8 kilometers were part of the Sunda Kelapa Port Master Plan (RIP) segment, Jakarta's head of coastal development planning and flooding control, Putu Riska Komala, explained.
