MANADO - PT Jasa Marga (Persero) Tbk through its subsidiary, PT Jasamarga Manado Bitung (JMB) made a number of efforts to accelerate construction for the Manado-Bitung toll road project, due to the operation of the road infrastructure project which is targeted at the beginning of 2019.

President Director of PT JMB George IMP Manurung explains one of the construction acceleration efforts is to apply technology using the Paver SP64 engine. This is intended to automatically form the road body through the Dowel Bar Inserter technology on the installation of Iron Dowel and Tie Bar.

"Until the beginning of January 2018, the total physical progress of Manado-Bitung Toll Road has reached 13,21%. As for land acquisition progress, this project has reached 69,55%. Where for the construction of toll road along the 39,9 km has shown a positive progress," said George IMP Manurung as reported from jasamarga.com (8/1/2018).

More details George also explained, "We are continuously coordinating with related parties, especially on the land acquisition process in the field so that the construction process does not back down from the time already targeted."

PT JMB also implemented Occupational Safety and Health (K3) in the construction of the project. The Company provides induction of OHS procedures to contractors and all workers to minimize accidents in the field that may hamper development progress.
