Jakarta / Thu, November 29, 2018
The Jakarta administration is planning to build three overpasses in Tanjung Barat, South Jakarta; Cakung, East Jakarta and Sunter Permai, North Jakarta.
Bina Marga Road Agency acting head Harry Hamdani said the overpasses would be built soon to support the toll roads according to Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 55/2018 on the 2018-2029 Greater Jakarta transportation masterplan.
“Perpres No. 55/2018 [mandates that] construction should start soon,” Harry said on Wednesday as reported by kompas.com.
He added that five overpasses had been planned for next year, but two were scrapped, namely on Jl. Bintaro Puspita in South Jakarta and Jl. Latumenten in West Jakarta.
Harry said the three overpasses would be built over a two-year period.
According to the 2019 city draft budget, the Tanjung Barat overpass will cost Rp 103.2 billion (US$7.1 million), Cakung Rp 90.9 billion and Sunter Permai Rp 87.3 billion.
The Jakarta Council budget committee (Banggar) approved the 2019 city draft budget on Tuesday. (ami)
