Jakarta, July 9, 2020 - The progress of the construction of the Cibitung-Cilincing Toll Road (JTCC) has reached 74 percent. PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero) / IPC is optimistic that the toll road that will connect the industrial area in Cikarang with the Port of Tanjung Priok can begin operating Semester I in 2021.
"The 34.8 Kilometer toll road work continues. Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, construction of the JTCC toll road project is ongoing, by implementing a health protocol, "said IPC President Director Arif Suhartono in Jakarta on Thursday (9/7).
At present, explained Arif, land acquisition for all JTCC sections has reached 86 percent. The rest is expected to be completed shortly.
The Cibitung-Cilincing Toll Road Section was built by PT CTP Tollways. PT CTP Tollways shares are owned by PT Akses Pelabuhan Indonesia (45 percent) which is the grandson of the IPC business, and PT Waskita Toll Road (55 percent). The total investment for the JTCC development reached around IDR 10.8 trillion.
The JTCC toll road is part of the construction of the Jakarta Outer Ring Road Toll Road 2 (JORR 2). This toll road section consists of 4 sections, namely Cibitung - Telaga Asih (3.14 Km); Telaga Asih - Tambelang (10.30 Km); Tambelang - Tarumajaya (14.3 Km); and Tarumajaya - Cilincing (7.10 Km).
According to Arif, this toll road will become one of the main accesses for the distribution of goods from the port to the industrial area in eastern Jakarta, or vice versa. "With the functioning of the JTCC toll road, the movement of goods to and from the port will be faster. We are sure that the existence of toll roads can reduce logistics costs, and reduce traffic around the Jakarta - Cikampek toll road, "he said.
