JAKARTADAILY.ID – Through the East Java Regional Settlement Infrastructure Center (BPPW), the Directorate General of Human Settlements, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PUPR) is preparing the construction of 4 tourist gates equipped with rest areas as entry points to Bromo-Tengger-Semeru.
The four gates and the rest area built are in Ngadiwono Village, Tosari District as the entrance from the Pasuruan Regency, and the gate in Sukapura Village as the entrance from the Probolinggo Regency.
PUPR Minister Basuki Hadimuljono said infrastructure development at each National Strategic Tourist Destination (KSPN) is planned in an integrated manner, both in terms of the regional arrangement, roads, supply of raw and clean water, waste management, sanitation, and improvement of population housing through a master plan for infrastructure development.
"For tourism, the infrastructure must first be repaired, then amenities and events, then a massive promotion. If this is not ready, tourists will come once and will not come back again. That is what we have to take care of properly," said Minister Basuki on Monday, July 11, 2022.
The gate in Senduro Village is included in the priority program of the Directorate General of Human Settlements Phase II with a budget requirement of IDR 68.18 billion.
