Jakarta, October 5, 2021 - PT Brantas Abipraya (Persero) which is known as one of the state-owned companies (State Owned Enterprises) in the construction sector is currently completing work on the National Tourism Strategic Area (KSPN) of Marina Bukit Pramuka Beach in Labuan Bajo, East Nusa Tenggara . By prioritizing quality and quality in its construction, the project, which began work at the end of September 2020, is targeted for completion by the end of 2021.

"Together with the Ministry of PUPR (Public Works and Public Housing), this project demonstrates the active role of Brantas Abipraya in contributing to beautify the Labuan Bajo area and later, this location is predicted to support Labuan Bajo to become a world-class waterfront city," said Miftakhul Anas as Corporate Secretary Brantas Abipraya.

He added that Brantas Abipraya will carry out construction in Zone 3 and Zone 5. Work on Zone 3 includes a tourist information center, food court / station for tourists, Harbormaster Office, multi-purpose room, waiting room, passenger terminal room, monument in the shape of the cardinal directions, hard scape of natural stone and land scape in the form of locally cultivated grass. The shape of the building that was built is also very unique because it is in the form of a staircase tribune that serves as a place for tourists to enjoy the scenery and photo spots. The excitement of the atmosphere in this zone will also be more fun when it is finished.

This is because Brantas Abipraya will also build an amphitheater or an open arena. So that later here the tourists can enjoy a variety of entertainment and performances. In addition, in Zone 5, Brantas Abipraya will prepare a location for open stalls to ensure the convenience of visitors while they are here, because they can have a culinary tour while enjoying views of the sea and the hills of Labuan Bajo.

The new face of this waterfront city will be designated as a premium tourist destination, no wonder the KSPN that is being worked on by Brantas Abipraya is the Super Priority KSPN. Anas said that in completion, the most reliable BUMN in the construction of this dam will highlight the artistic side. This is in line with the government's directive, namely that the arrangement of Labuan Bajo takes into account the elements of art and beauty. According to him, the beauty of Labuan Bajo must be maintained because this tourist area has the potential to become the best waterfront in the world.
Not only making Marina Bukit Pramuka Beach a waterfront city, earlier this year Brantas Abipraya also completed the construction of the Wae Kelambu Multifunction Terminal, Labuan Bajo Harbor. The docking test was carried out for the first time in March 2021, witnessed directly by the Minister of Transportation (Menhub) Budi Karya Sumadi. Completed on time, this terminal gives a new face to Labuan Bajo Port. This is because, apart from being a logistics traffic, the Wae Kelambu Multifunction Terminal can also be used as loading and unloading of containers and cargo so that it will separate tourism activities and loading and unloading of containers at the location.

"We are very serious in encouraging the Labuan Bajo development program to become a premium tourist destination, this is clear evidence that Brantas Abipraya is here for Indonesia as a development agent who always prioritizes the best construction work for the country. Hopefully in the future Labuan Bajo will be more crowded with tourists, both local and foreign tourists, "said Anas.
