REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - The progress of the construction of the Cibitung-Cilincing Toll Road (JTCC) which was built by the grandson of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (Pelindo) II (Persero), namely PT Akses Pelabuhan Indonesia, has now reached 74 percent. Pelindo Managing Director Arif Suharton is optimistic that the toll road that will connect the industrial area in Cikarang with the Port of Tanjung Priok can operate in the first semester of 2021.
"The 34.8 Kilometer toll road work continues. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, the construction of the JTCC toll road project is continuing, by implementing a health protocol, "Arif said in his written statement on Thursday (9/7).
Arif confirmed that currently the land acquisition for all JTCC sections has reached 86 percent. For the remainder of the land that has not been acquired, Arif expects to be completed shortly.
According to Arif, this toll road will become one of the main accesses for the distribution of goods. Especially in the process of distribution of goods from the port to the industrial area in eastern Jakarta or vice versa.
Arif assessed that with the functioning of the JTCC toll road, the movement of goods to and from the port will be faster. "We believe that the existence of a toll road can reduce logistics costs, and reduce traffic around the Jakarta - Cikampek toll road," Arif said.
The JTCC toll road is part of the construction of the Jakarta Outer Ring Road Toll Road 2 (JORR 2). The toll road section consists of 4 sections, namely Cibitung - Telaga Asih (3.14 kilometers), Telaga Asih - Tambelang (10.30 kilometers), Tambelang - Tarumajaya (14.3 kilometers), and Tarumajaya - Cilincing (7.10 kilometers .

The total investment for the JTCC development reached around Rp 10.8 trillion.
