Jakarta Youth and Sport Agency head Ratiyono said the company in question had begun conducting surveys on the sites, while his office had submitted the renovation plan. He said over the weekend as quoted by beritajakarta.id that the administration wants to start the renovation at the end of this month, so that it will finish by March. They plan to hold a test event in April at all venues for the Asian Games. While the location of the 10 sport halls was not mentioned, Ratiyono said the renovation would include repair work on floors, toilets and lighting as well as adding more air conditioners, in line with the international standards set for the quadrennial event. He added that total funds of Rp 65 billion (US$4.92 million) were needed for the renovation. (Jakarta Post)
