Like any other city in Indonesia, Tangerang growing rapidly as a base for industrial and business since the city has a strategic position because located near Jakarta.
But Tangerang nowadays also rapidly changes in environment protection issues. Many cars and motorbike go to Jakarta from Tangerang in office days and create air pollution. The other problem facing by Tangerang people is flood that now become more frequent each year
These problems should have more attention from local government and also the local parliament, since Tangerang had also loosing more and more lake and green spaces.
I believe the city has a city plan and also enacted in the local regulation. But it is hard to executing the law, because it is easy also to change the law to meet the needs of the local authorities.
The local authorities also failed to improve the quality of services in public transportation. The more comfortable one is the electric train, but it is also expensive and can’t reach the whole population of Tangerang.
So the important question are “would Tangerang be better in the near future?” and “how do we participate to create a better Tangerang for all?”
