Team supports Ladia Galaska road project

JAKARTA: A government team has said that the controversial Ladia Galaska road project should go ahead in Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam, despite mounting opposition from environmentalists.

However, in carrying out the project, potential environmental damage must be taken into account, Ladia Galaska Road Development Supervisory Team chairman Harry Heriono told a hearing with House Commission VIII in Jakarta on Thursday.

No conclusion on the highway project was reached at the hearing as there was no quorum. -- Antara
