The Greater Jakarta LRT is set to continue operational trials, despite an ongoing probe into a recent non-fatal crash, as developers of the nationally strategic project race to meet deadlines.

Budi Noviantoro, president director of state-owned train manufacturer PT Industri Kereta Api (INKA), said on Monday evening that the company would wait for the results of the National Transportation Safety Committee’s (KNKT) investigation before halting the trial process.

The KNKT opened the investigation after a Greater Jakarta LRT carriage crashed into a parked train on the same rail line during a trial run on Monday. The incident happened in Cipayung, East Jakarta, between Harjamukti Station in Depok and Ciracas Station in East Jakarta.
