Name Controversy[edit]

Purwakarta Regent, Dedi Mulyadi, protested the naming of the Cikampek - Palimanan toll road due to the location of the toll road segment is located in Cikopo, Purwakarta Regency, instead of Cikampek which is located at Karawang Regency. He pointed out past mistakes in naming the Jakarta-Cikampek toll road. The location of interchanges are geographically is located in Cikopo, Bungursari, Purwakarta. There is also the distance between the interchanges and the toll gate to the boundary of Cikopo with Cikampek, still 3 kilometers away. Finally, at the inauguration in June 2015 the name of this toll road changed from the Cikampek-Palimanan Toll Road (Cikapali) to the Cikopo-Palimanan Toll Road (Cipali).
