Toll road project is one of the infrastructure projects that become government priorities for immediate implementation. This infrastructure plays an important role in the progress of a region. With the existence of toll road can ease access to the region. And one of the toll road projects is Trans Java Toll Road. Here we will discuss facts about the Trans Java Toll Road project.
7 Facts About Trans Java Toll Road Project
1. The length is more than 1000 km
Trans Java toll road connecting cities in the Java Island, so it has a length of 1167 km. The Trans Java toll road network consists of existing toll roads and new toll road (9 main sections). The 9 main toll roads are 614,89 km and the rest are toll roads that already exist such as Jakarta-Merak toll road, Jakarta-Tangerang toll road, Jakarta Outer Ring Road, and so on.

3. Connecting the west end and east end of Java island
The Trans Java Toll Road Project aims to connect cities in Java island from Jakarta to Surabaya or from Merak to Banyuwangi. Thus land routes such as cars and buses to the cities are becoming faster, not as far away from trains.
The government hopes that Trans Java Toll Road can flatten the development of settlements and industrial areas other than Jakarta. In addition, the Trans Java Toll Road can cut the cost of goods logistics to encourage economic activity in Java Island.
4. Included in Asian Highway 2 (AH2)
Trans Java Toll Road is a toll road included in Asian Highway or Asian Road Network. Asian Highway 2 stretch from Indonesia (Denpasar-Trans Java-Trans Sumatera) to Iran.
The Asian Highway project has a length of 14.000 km which passes 32 countries in Asia and Europe. The Asian Highway Network Project is a collaboration between countries in Asia, Europe, and Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) of PBB to improve the road system in Asia. Also, this project aims to help land transportation connecting the continent of Asia with Europe.
5. Investment Cost: ± IDR 54.15 Trillion
Trans Java Toll Road project requires an investment cost of ± IDR 54.15 Trillion for the construction of 9 main sections and IDR 8.98 Trillion for the cost of land acquisition.
A big investment value is not an obstacle for the government in infrastructure development projects. Given, the good impact we will get will be much greater when the infrastructure has been completed and it is useful for the people.
6. Had Experienced Stagnation
The Trans Java Toll Road project started in 1995. However, due to monetary crisis in 1998, the construction of this toll road had to be postponed. Then in 2005, Trans Java Toll Road project began to enter the speed up phase. Construction of delayed toll roads begins to be continued.
In addition to the constraints of the monetary crisis, the construction of Trans Java Toll Road also faces land acquisition constraints. Nevertheless, they target the project will be completed by 2019.
7. Using cast iron deck drain
Toll roads have drainage channels as a way of surface water flow toward the sewer so there are no puddles. Puddles can damage the toll road structure resulting in a potholed road. Drainage channels on toll road generally use drainage castings in the form of deck drain.
In Trans Java Toll Road project, Infiniferro contributed by supplying cast iron deck drain for several toll road segments. They are Semarang-Solo, Solo-Ngawi, Kertosono-Mojokerto, and other segments.
That’s the facts about Trans Java Toll Road project on Infiniferro’s version. Trans Java Toll Road Project plays an important role in the development of the regions in Java Island. And we hope it can encourage the people’s economy.
