Transport River in East Kalimantan

By: Bosman Coal (Geologist, a member of Forum Lafadl)

They say that the island of Borneo is a thousand rivers. And indeed, on the island of Borneo, some large rivers flow erodes the Earth's crust, from upstream to downstream. Call it for example, Barito River in South Kalimantan (Kalimantan) and the Mahakam River in East Kalimantan (Kaltim). One time, I had the opportunity to do an expedition on the island whose territory until now owned by three countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei Darussalam is.

In Java, when people talked about transportation, it is likely that their images will focus on ground transportation such as cars and trains. Or on the island of Sumatra, when people talk about transportation, which is probably reflected land transportation. And for residents on both islands, transportation of water is a scarce item. Of course, with some exceptions, such as for residents who live on the banks of river Musi River in Palembang City.

In Borneo, the river seems to be a kind of pulse that can not be separated from community life. Besides as a means of water transportation, not a few villages in Borneo's population rely on the existence of the river with the profession as fishermen.

Mahakam River to link the cities of the coast with a small town and villages in the interior. Mahakam River is tipped in the Northwest part of the East Kalimantan, the 'golden path' of inestimable role in the lives of residents along the coast (people who live along the Mahakam River, always call the Mahakam Beach for their area).

Various kinds of river transportation in East Kalimantan. The transportation distance, say from Samarinda towards upstream, for example to the city of Muara Lawa, so people usually use the Water Bus. Muara Lawa own city is the capital PAHU Muara district. A small town no longer irrigated by the Mahakam River, but split by the river PAHU extension, which is the child Mahakam River.

Besides carrying passengers, Air Bus is usually also a means of transport for the various needs of the population. Staple food, electronic equipment, and fuel oil (BBM) are goods that are commonly found on the ship that would menghulu toward inland. Meanwhile, from upstream to downstream, rattan, various kinds of handicrafts, and fresh water fish that have been marinated, usually a commodity to be transported in the Water Bus.

The bus climbed the water for people who are not native Borneo, may be an interesting experience that offers countless memories. Tropical conditions in Kalimantan are still green; the way our eyes see the river and tropical trees, even if lucky might see Irrawaddy Dolphin fish that jumped out of the water, or the monkeys hanging in the trees on the riverbank. Water Bus stops occasionally at the riverside village of Dayaks. Lowering of one or more of passengers or cargo. And then back off again. The passengers themselves, usually do various activities on the Water Bus to kill time. Starting from chatting with other passengers, eating in the cafeteria ship, watching television, and karaoke. Though apparently, the activity can not be enjoyed karaoke maximum for ship engines roar deafening enough.

Because the travel time to and from the hinterland for a long time, for example, from a small town on the banks of Muara Lawa River until PAHU extension in Samarinda, the cost of 100 thousand dollars per person, a bus takes water downstream for approximately 17 hours. And more time is needed for the reverse direction. To reach Muara Lawa from Samarinda, it takes approximately 20 hours. Jams Bus Movement against the current water stream, as well as unloading activities of goods in several cities that passed.

In addition to Air Bus, speed boat, became one of the usual means of transportation used on the beach along the Mahakam and the tributaries flowing into the Mahakam. Speed boat but is usually used for the needs of urgent nature. This is because the cost of an expensive speedboat. For example, one time we hired a team of speed boat from Kota Bangun, located in the beach toward the village Dasaq Mahakam is located on the banks of the River PAHU extension. Speed boat with 85 power of PK (PK: horsepower. 85 PK roughly equivalent to one-tenth the power of a racing car F1 Ferrari 10-cylinder 248 used in the race Schummy season in 2005) that we rent to cost 1.2 million dollars for the travel time 6 watch. At that time the river conditions are not normal. Appearance of the sky over the river can be estimated that in the upstream was heavy rain. As a result along the way, seen the trunks of trees are washed away by river currents, indicating that the surface of the river was rising. The presence of pieces of wood, making speed boat driver was very careful. Because once one take the point, no doubt dikemudikannya speed boat which will hit the log.

Other transportation is ces. CES is the outboard motor boat. Ces made of wood with varying length, about 6 to 12 meters. And width are usually about 1 meter. On the back of the outboard engine mounted ces that can be installed to pieces. This outboard engine power also varies, generally ranging from 5 to 10 PK. CES into everyday vehicles of residents who live on the riverbank. The curse is usually penuduk ces for travel activities their fields. Ces Agency slim lead he could easily along the small rivers. Even ces are also often used by residents to enter the swamp. In addition to the fields, ces are also usually used for fishing activities, and menangguk catching fish in rivers and swamps. Long boat is another variant of ces with a longer body and engine power is greater.

In addition, there is still a traditional boat with a smaller size and more flat .. These boats usually sail the rivers to paddle as a source of energy. Usually only two men rode by, in front and behind, with each person holding the oars. If ces and long boat made of planks and multifarious connections form other timber so that the glue necessary connection sidelines of wood, the boats are usually made of wood dilobangi whole way, so no connection.

Another type is the pontoon. But these pontoon usually specifically used for transporting timber and goods such as coal mining and other concentrates. Or is also used to transport heavy equipment such as tractors to the needs of timber and mining companies from the city to the countryside

In daily living are familiar with the river and water transportation, then the residents to develop strategies in their lives. Because the topography is generally flat Kalimantan until almost flat (flat - almost flat), then the distribution pattern of the developing world is that the distribution pattern was berstadia adults - parents. This is marked by rivers had formed mender-meander (bend-bend in the river that exceed half lamda sinusoidal graph), the bend-bend in the river is usually inhabitants made canals. This canal to shorten the distance, since ces-ces they do not have to turn to follow a bend-bend in the river, but just take a piece of artificial channel cut in the neck bend. This strategy can shorten the distance that must be taken along dozens of miles.

One thing that worries many people is pendangkalan river. Surface of the river continues to shrink, and very drastically in the dry season, in recent years. Natural activity in the form of sedimentation along the watershed is also contributing role for pendangkalan river. Decrease in river water level is certainly closely related to the rate of deforestation in the jungles of Borneo. The decline of big trees causing the catchment area can no longer store water for a long time. Thus, if it rains, water flows directly into rivers. In addition, deforestation also causes weathering and erosion take place intense. This causes increased contribution of sediment material into the rivers. Pendangkalan river bottom is often caused the ship caught on the river floor. If this happens, then wait for a tugboat or a flood came, really become a boring job.

Star Sendawar Survived, Kutim Dismissed

Finance Manager PT Bintang Sendawar Rusdianto Kubar said flight conditions at Kubar, progressed with the increasing number of passengers. 18 seat Twin Otter aircraft used Balikpapan-Samarinda goal-carry back and forth (PP) flights four times a week ie Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday are always full. "Once the route Balikpapan-Samarinda 1-5 passengers now have nearly filled. Similarly, an increase in the number of passenger-carrying routes PP Samarinda," said Rusdianto to Kaltim Post, when asked the flight condition at this time Kubar.

Even more exciting, there is increased number of passengers Balikpapan route directly to perform. Similarly, an increase in the flow of passengers behind it, ie perform this Balikpapan. Growth certain number of passengers as the cessation of flights PT Dirgantara Air Service (DAS) Samarinda-carry regulation. And we see the passengers are mostly new people who made possible the investors who will invest in Kubar.
As for flights twice a week Tuesday and Thursday purpose carry Datah Dawai Long Pahangai District Kubar, discontinued since four months ago he said, caused a loss. Because of greater operating costs compared to income.

Regarding commercial rates flight, he says, PT Bintang Sendawar not raise ticket prices. As is known, Balikpapan-Samarinda by 20 minutes flight time Rp192 thousand, Samarinda, 45 minutes carry rates Rp 437.800. The rise in charter rates from 1200 dollars to 1350 dollars per hour. Aircraft charter rate increase as prices rise avtur. Conditions are also increasing. Every Thursday morning chartered PT Kelian Equatorial Mining Balikpapan carry purposes. Meanwhile, Wednesday and Friday chartered by the company to Central Kalimantan.

Meanwhile, Perusda Transportation, Tourism, Telecommunication Business and Industrial Area (PPTKBI) Kutim been frozen. Yet this Perusda never handled the air transport JIO Water Line, the route Sangatta-Islamabad flights. However, by reason quiet passengers, Perusda Regency property is to stop operating Kutim JIO Water.
Once frozen, according to Ir Anung Nugroho, former Director of PPTKBI, all issues concerning the plan to reopen the transport services handled PT Kutai Timur Investama (KTI). "PPTKBI has been replaced with PT KTI. So that all matters related to property businesses Pemkab Perusda Kutim PT KTI was handled," explained Tom Director of PT KTI.
We can not explain when the plan to reopen Sangatta-Islamabad flights. For PT KTI currently more focused on the development of airport expansion and exploration Sangkima cooperation with investors for the opening of services Sangatta angkuta-Islamabad flight. Sangkima own expansion plans are still waiting for permission from the Minister of Finance.

"Letter of request for permission Sangkima airport expansion is still in the process of Minister of Finance. After that we just talked the other development plans," he said.
PPTKBI Kutim Perusda had handled the aircraft transportation services business with Sangatta-Islamabad route. However, management was forced to stop operating leased aircraft Perusda watersheds such as quiet passenger.

Although Perusda Kutim has done breakthrough innovations and new flights from Sangatta - Balikpapan and vice versa, where the flight had been conducted every day of the flight path. However, after walking a few months and rather lonely passengers, airlines reduced to three times a week, ie Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. This step is intended that the flights were carried out more effectively and get people's attention in the use of transport services Sangatta flights to Balikpapan and vice versa.
In addition, aircraft used also changed from Cassa aircraft capable of carrying 24 seats (chairs) a twin otter with 18 seats. Even the flight route that is also coupled Sangatta-Samarinda only once a week.

However, management efforts JIO Water Line to reduce the frequency of flights is still not providing results, and on March 3 and it was decided that the flight was terminated.
Problem losses, Kumi said Perusda no losses. The reason is merely facilitators Perusda alone. "All capital and operational costs such as the cost of fuel oil (BBM) and other costs of providing investors handled the plane. Only the salaries of employees on the payroll of Perusda Kutim Pemkab. That is the unique partnership at the time," he said, without mentioning the name of the investor in question.
Perusda own capital? "PPTKBI Perusda not have the capital. All operational activities, including salaries of employees when it was borne Pemkab Kutim," he explained again. (emeralds / yes)

Five Alternatives For Airport Development Plan Replacement Melalan

SAMARINDA - Pemkab Kutai Barat (Kubar) propose an alternative 5 as the location for the development of Airport (Airport) in Sendawar, instead of the Airport property Melalan TNI-AU is at this time. This is to anticipate the needs of air transportation facilities in this area in future.

Given the distance Sendawar (Kubar capital) with other cities in East Kalimantan be regarded very much. From Samarinda to Sendawar only land transportation with the most rapid take 6 hours, while if the Mahakam River to the ship time is much longer. Therefore, air transportation is very necessary.

Fifth is the location, the location of existing (Melalan Airport), Kampung Keay (Begalak), Kampung Rinding (District of Peace), Kampung Dempar (Terajuk), and village across Melak (District Manoor Bulatn). "Location-new location this is our proposal, later the central government determine or decide which location is selected," said the Head of Department of Transportation Kubar Gun Yulius to this newspaper, yesterday.

He explains, new airport development plan that, because the confidence that Sendawar akan growing so big city. Necessarily require adequate means of transportation such as the airport is more representative. Not to mention the comfort and security factors in the surrounding population must be considered with the presence of the airport in the middle of the city. "So, we plan the airport is only as Melalan Airport. Not the new airport. However, we propose a new location. Matter of funding has not been discussed, including the exemption of land. Moreover, permission, "he explained.

Mentioned, at this time Kubar have 2 airport. That is, the data wire in the Airport District and the Long Pahangai Airport Melalan own in Sendawar. Data wire for the Airport, at this time can didarati small airplanes. Similarly with the Airport Melalan, even though the runway (the runway) in the development stage. Where, the length of the runway about 900 meters by 300 meters, became the 1,200 meters.

Although this arrangement, the airport authority over the provincial government and the central government, but Pemkab Kubar not turn this area long enough that the air transport security. Given the geographic factors Kubar which consists of 21 districts be calculated challenging. Some areas rely solely on river transportation that requires some time, not because of land transportation.

Airport development plans on the data wire, Pemkab Kubar can not do much. The airport is under the shelter management Temindung Airport in Samarinda. (kri)

Airports in West Kutai

Kutai Barat (Kubar) has two airports, namely Melalan Sendawar and Datah Long Pahangai wire. But it is also quiet during the flight of the last three years. It is reduced to the termination of the flight. In fact, the demand for air service user, particularly in the border districts (Long Pahangai and Long Apari), is high enough.

Head of Transportation Office of Communications and Information Technology (Dishubkominfo) Kubar Drs Yulius Gun through Kabid Land and Air Adi Sucipto said, Kubar diterbangi first two flights, namely PT Dirgantara Air Service (DAS) and PT Sendawar Stars.

"But somehow, around the beginning of the year 2007, the DAS stop flight. DAS usually serves the route Samarinda Datah wire (Long Pahangai), Melalan Sendawar (formerly Melak), and Airport Temindung Samarinda, "called Adi, Kasi justified Kebandaraan Paul Herman, yesterday.

Lapse of two years, precisely the beginning of the year 2009, turn Stars Sendawar stop flight Datah wire-Samarinda Datah and wire-Melalan Sendawar. Termination of Sendawar Stars operates DHC-6 Twin Otter with 18 seats, the termination of subsidies related to the flight by Kubar Pemkab. Stars Sendawar now only fly Melalan Sendawar-Samarinda-Balikpapan, 3 times a week.

Adi said, the number of passengers each month from Sendawar Star Melalan Sendawar or Balikpapan-Samarinda is still quite high. "On average, 200 more passengers each month. Even when the operation is still PT DAS, reaching an average of 300-400 people per month, "sebutnya.

Diakuinya, many residents insist that the flight route in the earlier fixed-routes resumed. "While there is no more subsidy. Komersilnya such as tariffs providing for this, between Rp 500 to Rp 600 per thousand people, "said Paul Herman, fake border residents. Moreover, when the Mahakam River water is receding due to drought. A result, freight transport services water transportation increasingly expensive, even compared to the flight.

"If the water is being increased, rates Longboat Apari Long-Long Bagun Rp 600 ribu. More from Long Bagun to the capital district. If the drought so much more expensive, "sebutnya.

Dishubkominfo, according to Paul Herman, have been neutralize some airlines, like Susi Air, fly the route and abandoned DAS Stars Sendawar. But until now there are no answers.

Despite the quiet flight, the increased runway (runway) continue to be made. In Melalan Sendawar Airport, runway length selebar 23 meters is added, from 900 meters to be 1200 meters, 900 meters before. Similarly in the Airport Datah wire, extended 750 meters with a width of runway
