Jakarta, The Indonesia Post – Chairman of the Indonesian House of Representatives, Puan Maharani, highlighted the maintenance of the transportation safety system in the event of an accident involving the Turangga Train and the Bandung Raya Train which resulted in the death of four people.

The former Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture (Menko PMK) asked PT KAI together with other related teams to immediately find the cause of this unfortunate incident.

“In this way, there will be an evaluation and improvement of the public transportation safety system. Not only for trains, but all other modes of public transportation, including land routes which are prone to accidents,” said Puan in a statement received in Jakarta, Saturday.

He also asked the government through the Ministry of Transportation to continue monitoring and ensuring the security of the management system in all modes of transportation.

He considered this important to do so that similar incidents do not happen again in the future and to provide a sense of security and comfort to the community.

“Ensure that all protocols are carried out according to standards to minimize human error which can harm the public as users of transportation services. The government must guarantee the safety of citizens who are traveling,” he said.

Furthermore, Puan Maharani emphasized that PT KAI should provide the best service for all accident victims by facilitating and fulfilling all their needs well.
