“After revitalization, street around the river can be used as hang out place. River water to be made as clear as possible, as well as providing park,” said Norviadi S Husodo, Head Unit of Kota Tua Management, Friday (7/22).
The revitalization is inspired from Cheonggyechon river in Seoul, Korea. As the first stage, the project is implemented along 600-700 meters up to Jembatan Kota Intan. It will spend Rp 270 billion.
