Jakarta – Ciawi – Sukabumi Toll Road Construction, Section I will soon be completed. The project, which has been neglected since 1997, is targeted to be completed at the end of this year.
With the completion of physical construction of Section I at the end of the year, it is hoped that the toll road of 15.35 km connecting Ciawi, Bogor to Lido, Cigombong can be operated at the beginning of 2018.
“Completion target of physical construction of Section I is the end of this year,” said Managing Director of Waskita Toll Road, Herwidiakto to detikFinance when he was contacted in Jakarta, Thursday (26/1/2017)
Meanwhile, Head of Indonesia Toll Road Authority (BPJT), Herry Trisaputra Zuna said that the company will continue making an effort to push the construction of Section I to be completed at the end of this year. However, last year, the adverse weather obstructed the project progress.
“Admittedly, it is targeted to be in operation at the end of the year upon the construction completion. So, it is assumed to start operation in 2017,” he explained.
As it is known that PT Waskita Toll Road has become the biggest shareholder in consortium enterprise of Ciawi – Sukabumi Toll Road Construction, which is divided into 4 (four) sections.
Section I,Bogor or Ciawi - Lido, Cigombong as long as 15.35 km; Section II, Cigombong - Cibadak with the length of 11.9 km; Section III Cibadak – Sukabumi with the length of 13.7 km; and Section IV, West Sukabumi – East Sukabumi with the length of 13.05 km.
Based on monitoring data of BPJT at the end of December 2016, land acquisition for Section I has reached 95.53%. The Toll road is expected to overcome congestion in area of Puncak, Bogor Regency. (wdl/wdl)
