Construction progress of Cibitung-Cilincing Toll Road (CCTR) project, which will connect industrial area in Cikarang with Tanjung Priok Port Jakarta, has reached 74% and is expected to operate in first half of 2021.
"The 34.8 kilometer toll road construction continues despite Covid-19 pandemic, by implementing health protocols," President Director of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia II (Persero)/IPC Arif Suhartono said on Thursday (9/7).
At present, land acquisition for all CCTR sections has reached 86% and the rest is expected to be completed in the near future.
Cibitung-Cilincing Toll Road Section was built by PT CTP Tollways. PT CTP Tollways shares are owned by PT Akses Pelabuhan Indonesia (45%) which is grandson of IPC, and another 55% is owned by PT Waskita Toll Road. Total investment for CCTR development around IDR 10.8 trillion.
CCTR is part of construction of 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 main accesses for distribution of goods from the port to industrial area in eastern Jakarta, or vice versa.
"With the functioning of CCTR, movement of goods to and from the port will be faster. We are sure that existence of toll roads can reduce logistics costs, and reduce traffic around Jakarta-Cikampek toll road," he added. (hlz/hlz)
