Making Way for Redevelopment, Reluctantly
JULY 11, 2017
Jakarta. The Jakarta administration is evicting residents from Bukit Duri, South Jakarta, an old kampung on the banks of the Ciliwung River, on Tuesday (11/07).
Hundreds of buildings — homes, shops, community centers — will be destroyed to make way for the administration's "river normalization" project, which will build green areas and new roads on the riverbanks.
The evicted residents will be moved to simple rental apartments — Rawa Bebek, Rusun Komarudin, Rusun Pulo Gebang and Rusun Bekasi KM 2 — far away from their original kampung.
