Longspan Jabodebek LRT Sets the Longest Record

For Jakarta residents, especially those who often cross the Kuningan area, South Jakarta, of course familiar with the concrete curved bridge that crosses between Jalan Gatot Subroto and Jalan HR Rasuna Said.

The bridge is a crossing for the fast train (Light Rapid Transit / LRT) which will become a new transportation for the citizens of Jakarta and surrounding areas.

At present the phase I LRT cross that has been built includes Cawang-Cibubur, Cawang-Kuningan-Dukuh Atas cross, and Cawang-East Bekasi cross. As of November 1, the work of all tracks reached 67.3% and is targeted to be operational in 2021.

Special, this curved bridge is the longest curved concrete bridge for trains in Indonesia. The record award was symbolically given by MURI founder Jaya Supratna to PT Adhi Karya Tbk President Director Budi Harto, who worked on the project.

The length of the main span of the longspan is 148 meters, while the concrete box girders have a curved radius of 115 meters.

Budi Harto even claims that this bridge is the longest bridge in the world. This achievement drew praise from the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, PUPR Minister Basuki Hadimuljono, Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi and the Minister of BUMN who were present at the ceremonial casting of the arch bridge, Monday (11/11/2019).

“We must be proud to be Indonesian,” Luhut said in his remarks.

Luhut’s expression also expressed appreciation for Arvilla Delitriana, the local architect who designed the arch bridge. However, Luhut fully expressed his admiration because the work on the LRT track was full of local content.

Budi Harto explained, initially there were 4 design criteria for the construction of this arch bridge. Three of them are designs from French architects, one is Arvilla’s design namely Concrete box girder balanced cantilever.

From this overpass, there is a view of Jakarta with tall buildings. The current density of vehicles passing on Jl Gatot Subroto, Jl HR Rasuna Said, and on the inner city toll road directly below the bridge can be seen.

Basuki Hadimuljono also rewarded that achievement by giving the Minister of Operational Funds (DOM) to Arvilla. Not wanting to be left behind, Luhut also gave his DOM to Arvilla.

“This is no joke, ladies and gentlemen. His design immediately received two awards from MURI. This might be patented to be used elsewhere,” said Basuki.

Mobil terpanjang di dunia sudah mati, tetapi hidup kembali

Pernah bertanya-tanya seperti apa bentuk mobil terpanjang di dunia? Renungkan pemikiran itu tidak lagi – ini dia, dan itu disebut ‘Impian Amerika’.

Limousine besar-besaran, yang dibangun oleh guru mobil kustom California Jay Ohrberg, berukuran panjang 100 kaki dan disertifikasi sebagai mobil terpanjang di dunia oleh Guinness World Records pada pertengahan 90-an. Ini olahraga 26 roda, jacuzzi, papan selam, tempat tidur air berukuran besar, dan bahkan landasan pendaratan helikopter. Karena mengapa tidak? Tapi sementara semua itu spektakuler sendiri, itu adalah sejarah terbaru dari mobil terpanjang di dunia yang mungkin paling menarik. Lebih dari itu dalam satu menit.

American Dream memulai kehidupan pada akhir 1980-an di toko Hollywood Cars Ohrberg. Ohrberg memilih Cadillac Eldorado tahun 1970-an emas sebagai titik awal, dan timnya mulai mengiris kapal pesiar darat … dan mengembangkan konsep itu ke tingkat ke-9. 100 kaki dan 26 roda kemudian, American Dream selesai, menampilkan jacuzzi dan landasan helikopter yang disebutkan di atas, serta renda kecil dan ruang tamu yang dihiasi lilin dan dua kabin pengemudi terpisah.

Limusin bisa didorong dalam keadaan lurus seperti panah, atau diatur ulang untuk menekuk di tengah. Kabin pengemudi terpisah agak diperlukan untuk menegosiasikan setiap belokan, dan ‘pengemudi kursi belakang’ akan mengarahkan gandar belakang. Diharapkan, mobil film dan kendaraan layar ini tidak legal di jalan, dan foto-foto periode menunjukkan bahwa American Dream dapat dilepas di bagian tengah dan dapat dilacak dengan truk rata dari lokasi ke lokasi.

Tapi ‘mobil terlama di dunia’ yang mengklaim ketenaran tampaknya tidak bisa menyelamatkannya dari kematian akhirnya. American Dream disewakan kepada perusahaan yang menggunakannya sebagai kendaraan promosi, dan pada akhir masa sewa, pengasuhnya meninggalkannya di gudang New Jersey. Mobil itu muncul kembali pada tahun 2012 di sebuah lelang penyelamatan yang membutuhkan perbaikan besar – kerusakan pada tubuh, air mata di atap, jendela pecah, dan jacuzzi berkarat – itu tidak terlihat menjanjikan.

Namun, ceritanya berubah positif. Pada tahun 2014, Autoseum Automotive Teaching Museum di New York mengumumkan bahwa limusin American Dream telah diperoleh dan sekarang akan digunakan untuk membantu mengajar siswa untuk memperbaiki, membuat dan membuat mobil. Mengingat ukurannya yang tipis, proyek restorasi ini mungkin membutuhkan waktu.
