The Jakarta province proposed the Jakarta Giant Sea Wall as the waterfront city for the new urban settlement zone and the deep seaport for the new economic zone along the coastal areas at northern Jakarta. This letter investigated land deformation at 11 watersheds of the West Java Mega Urban Region using the persistent scatterer interferometry technique of the Advanced Land Observing Satellite phased-array-type L-band synthetic aperture radar data. The result shows that land deformation at the study area, particularly the Bandung city area gives a significant impact to sedimentation velocity along the eastern Jakarta strait, particularly the deep seaport for 43 years later. This letter recommends to evaluate land conservation at upland watersheds and the well management of artificial canals to reduce the impact of sedimentation at the Jakarta strait, particularly the new depth seaport.
