"This trial only applies to people living around the Jakarta-Bandung High-Speed Train route," Minister Pandjaitan told during the meeting with members of the House of Representatives Budget Committee on Friday. 

"The sound barrier is almost all finished, we will see this fast train later. We will prepare it in August for the surrounding communities who live on the railroad tracks, so later they will take it for free while trying this (fast train)," he added.

Minister Pandjaitan then mentioned the Light Rail Transit (LRT) which will eventually be connected to the high-speed train. He stated that during the initial operation of the LRT, many people disagreed.

"The LRT is almost entirely domestically made. Indeed, in the beginning, many disagreed, but I reported to the President. It is true that when the President rode it the other day, there was a 30 cm deviation, but we calibrated it, and I believe that now everything is in order," the Minister stated. 

"So, I think I dare to start with the local content earlier. I kindly request the support of all of you," he added.
