The people and government of Jayapura are hoping that the under construction Holtekamp Bridge is officially named Soekarnopura, the name of the provincial capital of Irian Jaya before it was changed to Jayapura. 
“This name [Soekarnopura] is historical,” said Jayapura Mayor Rustan Saru on the sidelines of an event at the Holtekamp Bridge in Jayapura on Thursday.
With the second lifting on Thursday, the construction of the bridge conducted by state-owned construction firm PT Pembangunan Perumahan (PP) is more than 90 percent complete.
“The first lifting was completed on Feb.21. With the second lifting, only 5 percent of the construction activities are left,” PP infrastructure director M.Toha Fauzia said.
Toha said construction would be completed in June, two months before its deadline in September. The installation of the bridge’s lifting span center took four to six hours.
Iwan Zarkasi, director of the bridge division at the Public Works and Housing Ministry’s Bina Marga Directorate General, hoped the Papua provincial administration and the Jayapura administration could work together to complete the project.
“It is hoped the Papua and Jayapura administrations can immediately complete their parts so that this bridge can function in 2019,” said Iwan.
In regard to the name of the 732-meter-long bridge, Iwan said he would convey all input to Minister Basuki Hadimuljono. (sha/ebf)
