Surabaya’s Deputy Governor, Emil Dardak, recently launched the city’s new transportation masterplan that includes high-speed rail links and a light rail transit (LRT) network for Indonesia’s second largest city.  Crossrail International Managing Director, Paul Dyson, was amongst a panel of UK suppliers who gathered at the Mercure Surabaya Hotel in East Java for a focus group discussion, sharing insights and experience with a wide audience of stakeholders, including provincial government and municipality officials.

Following opening remarks from the Deputy Governor and Ivy Kamadjaja, the UK’s Honorary Consul in Surabaya, the agenda included discussions and case studies focused on the integrated transport plan, funding and financial models, procurement models and investment schemes, including transit-oriented development (TOD) and value capture.

The UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) in Jakarta and Surabaya had worked closely with the event’s organisers to bring an array of UK expertise to the event with participants from Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA), SERCO, Buro Happold, PwC and Crossrail International in attendance.
