Korea Selatan Minat Bangun Jaringan Kereta di Sumatera Utara

first_imgSumber: youtube.com Kabar menggembirakan datang dari provinsi Sumatera Utara, dimana sebuah perusahaan umum asal Korea, Korea Rail Network Authority (KRNA) secara terang-terangan menyatakan minatnya untuk melakukan investasi dengan membangun sistem transportasi kereta di provinsi yang terkenal dengan Danau Tobanya tersebut.Baca Juga: Sumatera Utara Ternyata Punya 10 BandaraSebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman thejakartapost.com (15/3/2018), manajer umum otoritas untuk divisi luar negeri KRNA, Park Dae-geun menyebutkan bahwa perusahaan tersebut tertarik untuk berinvestasi di provinsi Sumatera Utara setelah dirinya bertemu dengan sekretaris daerah (sekda), Ibnu S. Hutomo. Dirinya mengatakan bahwa provinsi tersebut membutuhkan sistem transportasi yang lebih baik dan cepat, mengingat pertumbuhan populasi dan ekonomi yang terhitung cepat. “Pemerintah Sumatera Utara berkeinginan untuk mengembangkan jalur kereta api untuk menghubungkan Medan dari Pematang Siantar ke daerah resor Danau Toba di Bandara Parapat dan Silangit di Tapanuli Utara,” tutur Ibnu menyambut baik niatan dari pihak Korea tersebut. “PT KAI hanya menghubungkan Medan dan Pematang Siantar saja,” tandasnya.Entah minatnya untuk mengadakan sarana transportasi di provinsi Sumatera Utara dilandaskan pada upaya untuk melebarkan sayap perusahaan atau bukan, namun seperti yang diketahui bersama, KRNA merupakan salah satu pengembang dari proyek pengadaan Light Rapid Transit (LRT) di Jakarta.Lebih lanjut, Ibnu menandaskan bahwa menghadirkan moda transportasi yang andal merupakan prioritas pemerintah, terutama dalam upayanya untuk mengakomodasi wisatawan domestik dan mancanegara yang bertandang ke Tanah Batak.Akhir tahun lalu, PT Angkasa Pura II menyelesaikan renovasi di Bandara Silangit sebagai salah satu upaya untuk menarik wisatawan dan mempromosikan Danau Toba sebagai destinasi wisata utamanya. Renovasi tersebut mencakup perpanjangan landasan pacu hingga 2.650m dari 2.400m, perluasan kapasitas apron dan terminal bandara dengan total investasi US$27,7 juta atau yang setara dengan Rp369 miliar.Baca Juga: Mau ke Pulau Samosir?

Sementara terminal yang telah direnovasi akan mampu menampung penumpang hingga 1 juta orang, yang sebelumnya hanya mampu menampung 36.500 penumpang setiap tahunnya. Selain untuk tujuan wisata, Ibnu juga mengatakan pemerintah pun berencana akan membangun jalur kereta api yang menghubungkan beberapa daerah lain, seperti Binjai, Deli Serdang, dan Karo.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedBerdamai, Korea Selatan Siap Bersinergi ‘Terangkan’ Sektor Transportasi di Korea Utara11/05/2018In “Darat”Dengan Sentuhan Rusia, Kalimantan Bakal Rasakan Jalur Kereta di 202214/07/2017In “Darat”Lebih Dekat dengan Kereta Bandara Kuala Namu09/02/2017In “Bandara”last_img read more

Deers beat Frontiers to win Pearl Bowl title

first_imgIn April, the Kajima Deers found out they were going to need to find a new sponsor at the end of the current X League season.While that search is still ongoing, if any potential backers were watching them play Monday night, good news may be on the horizon. Kajima Deers, Fujitsu Frontiers, Pearl Bowl GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES KEYWORDScenter_img Quarterback Takuya Yamashiro and the Deers offense put on a show through the air in the second half, scoring 17 unanswered points to earn a 17-10 victory over the Fujitsu Frontiers in Pearl Bowl XXXVI on Monday night at Tokyo Dome.“We were able to move the chains in the first half,” Kajima head coach Kiyoyuki Mori said. “Our play wasn’t as bad as the halftime score (the Deers trailed 10-0). We knew Fujitsu would try to stop our running game, so we felt our passing would be effective in the second half.”Yamashiro ended Kajima’s first two drives of the second half with touchdown passes to help his team overturn a 10-0 halftime deficit and win the Pearl Bowl title for the first time since 2009. He finished 16 of 22 for 184 yards and two touchdowns.“We struggled to score in the first half, but believed we’d have a chance to catch up if we kept playing patiently,” Yamashiro said. “Our defense played great in the second half and gave us a chance to win.”Receiver Yujiro Iwai caught three passes for 76 yards in the win and was named the game’s MVP. Iwai helped set up his team’s first score with a 48-yard reception in the third quarter and later scored the go-ahead touchdown.“I’m happy that I took advantage of the few chances I had,” Iwai said.Kajima receiver Naoki Maeda also had three receptions and finished with 45 yards and a touchdown.The Pearl Bowl signals the end of the X League’s spring season and is a matchup of the final two teams remaining in the Pearl Bowl tournament.The victory gives the Deers a bit of good news to fall back on after getting word that Japanese construction giant Kajima would be pulling its corporate backing after the season. Kajima cited financial reasons for the move. Meaning this was the team’s last Pearl Bowl under the Kajima banner.“We have always had the mentality that every season could be our last even before this year,” Mori said. “We were not especially emotional for this game. We thank everyone who have supported the Kajima Deers.The Deers reached the Pearl Bowl after playoff victories over the IBM Big Blue (32-26) and the Nojima Sagamihara Rise (27-12).Fujitsu was playing for the title for the sixth time since 2003. The Frontiers edged Obic for the title in 2010, before the Seagulls returned the favor in 2011.The rivals met in the semifinals of the Pearl Bowl tournament this season, with the Frontiers snapping the Seagulls’ 37-game winning streak, a run of over three years, with a 31-13 victory.They looked primed to take home the title this season, grabbing an early 7-0 lead on running back Yusuke Shinji’s seven-yard scamper into the end zone in the first quarter. Fujitsu padded the lead with a 21-yard field goal at the 12:15 mark of the second quarter.Kajima came out firing in the second half, with Yamashiro and Iwai connecting on a 48-yard pass on the first play from scrimmage. Yamashiro found receiver Naoki Maeda for a 29-yard touchdown pass on the Deers’ next play. Place kicker Daisuke Aoki converted the extra point to cut the Fujitsu lead to 10-7.Yamashiro was at it again during the Deers’ second possession of the half. Facing a 2nd-and-8 from the 50, he found Yasuhiro Miyamoto for a 45-yard gain to the Fujitsu 5-yardline. Yamashiro was sacked on the next play, but bounced back on second down to find Iwai for a five-yard touchdown pass that put Kajima ahead.“It wasn’t a designed play to be honest,” Iwai said. “It was a pass meant for (receiver Kento Suzuki), but the ball passed by him and I caught it. I knew I had caught, but I had to make sure I was in bounds.”The Frontiers tried to mount a comeback, but had a drive stall on the Kajima 29 late in the fourth quarter.The Deers took over and drove to the Frontiers’ 14, and Aoki added a field goal to make the score 17-10.Staff writers Hiroshi Ikezawa and Kaz Nagatsuka contributed to this report.

Ravens add Cal Poly cornerback Asa Jackson in fifth round

first_imgOWINGS MILLS, Md. — In an effort to build depth at cornerback as well as boost their underwhelming return game, the Ravens drafted Cal Poly cornerback Asa Jackson with their only fifth round pick at 169th overall.Jackson brings good speed (a 4.44 second 40-yard dash at Hawaii’s scouting event) as well as an ability to return punts, which could allow the Ravens to replace top cornerback Lardarius Webb at that spot. The Mustangs’ team captain thrived as a punt returner and took over primary kickoff return duties during his senior season.He averaged 14.2 yards per punt return during his collegiate career and 21.2 yards per kickoff return at FCS school Cal Poly. He gained notoriety after being invited to the Senior Bowl, becoming only the second Cal Poly player to receive the invite.At 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, Jackson has average size for a cornerback but showed good strength at the scouting combine and earned the reputation for superb man coverage skills in college, albeit against FCS competition.last_img read more
