Roads and Highways in Indonesia

The Jagorawi Toll Road was the first toll road in Indonesia. Construction on the highway began in 1973 by some 200 workers at a cost of 350 million Indonesian rupiah per kilometer; it was officially opened by President of Indonesia Suharto on 9 March 1978.[1]

The Jagorawi Toll Road links the capital city of Jakarta to the West Javanese cities of Bogor and Ciawi. It has a length of more than 60 km going north and southbound and is operated by PT Jasa Marga, a state-owned enterprise. The name Jagorawi is an acronym of areas which it connects, which are Jakarta, Bogor, and Ciawi.

The toll road has achieved break-even point, making it the cheapeast toll road in Indonesia based on price per kilometer.

History[edit]

In 1973, the Indonesian government began building the first highway linking the capital Jakarta with the city of Bogor. When the road was still in its construction phase, it was not officially a toll road. When the highway was nearly finished, the government began considering ways to execute the operation and maintenance of the highway autonomously, without burden on governmental financing. For that purpose, the Labor Department suggested that the portion of the road between Jakarta and Bogor be changed to a toll road. Private investors, with government financing, created the semi-private corporation Jasa Marga and arranged to manage the highway two weeks before its opening.

Facilities[edit]

The Jagorawi Toll Road is three lanes wide (in each direction) from Jakarta to Sentul, and it is planned that the road will be widened again through Bogor.

The toll road has two Pertamina gas stations which are combined with restaurants, rest areas, and outlet stores.

Notable accidents[edit]

On September 8, 2013, the toll road has been a major point for an accident involving Ahmad Dhani and Maia Estianty's youngest son Dul, primarily on the km 8+200 mark. 7 people were killed in the accident and 8 people were severely injured due to the crash. It was revealed that Dul was driving a black Mitsubishi Lancer, as he lost control of his car and hit the metal separator while going home from Bogor to Jakarta, crashing an oncoming Daihatsu Gran Max and a Toyota Avanza.

Floods[edit]

For the first time in January 2014, Jagorawi Toll Road was flooded from Cipinang River at Kilometer 4. The toll road was still operational in both directions, with vehicles driving slowly through the flood. Consequently, the toll road suffered from severe gridlock. [2]

Ciawi-Sukabumi Toll Road[edit]

Ciawi-Sukabumi Toll Road is a planned 54-km extension of Jagorawi Toll Road, subdivided into 4 sections:[3]

  • Ciawi-Cigombong, 15 kilometers
  • Cigombong-Cibadak, 12 kilometers
  • Cibadak-West Sukabumi, 14 kilometers
  • West Sukabumi-East Sukabumi, 13 kilometers

Concession is held by PT Trans Jabar Toll and land acquisition at January 2013 is 40 percent and predicted the construction will be initialized at end of 2013. However, construction is delayed due to problematic land acquisition.[4]
