The Indonesian Department of Transportation has announced its intention to establish three new directorates, each headed by its own director.

According to the Secretary General of the Department of Transportation, Wendy Aritenang Yazid, the structural changes at the Department are in response to recommendations from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to improve safety standards for commercial aviation in the country. The three new directorates will be charged with overseeing air navigation, security at airports and general airport operations.

According to Yazid quoted in the Indonesian-language Bisnis Indonesia: "A team from the Directorate General of Transportation is in the process of doing the groundwork for the set up of the new divisions. This year we will forward a proposal to the State Minister for Administrative Reforms."

Once approved by the State Minister, the Minister of Transportation will formally establish the three new divisions within his ministry via an official decree.

While the new directorates charged with navigation and airport safety represent new institutions at the Ministry, the third directorate charge with general airport operations will see the amalgamation of the existing Directorate of Airport Technical Operations and the Directorate for Technical/Electronic Flight Facilities.

The Director of Certification and Airworthiness at the Department of Transportation, Yurlis Hasibuan, told the press that preparations for the introduction of the three new departments are well underway with operating procedures now being formulated. Hasibuan went on to explain that the new Directorate of Air Navigation will be in charge of all aspects of air traffic control including operations, licensing and manpower training.

Department of Transportation Seeks More Funding

Meanwhile,the Department of Transportation has requested minimal additional funding from the Government of Rp. 689 billion (approximately US$76.2 million) for the current year.

The supplemental budget, according to Transportation Minister Syafi Djamal, is needed to address safety and infrastructure issues in the nation's land, sea and air transportation system.

While a detailed breakdown on how the requested funds will be used was not provided, Rp. 100 billion would be used to relocate railways tracks affected by the massive mud-flows near Surabaya in East Java with another Rp. 200 billion allocated for infrastructure improvements in the national transportation system.
