JAKARTA – The Jakarta-Surabaya Trans-Java toll road which stretches 760 km could be covered in 10 hours if the traffic gridlock in the Jakarta-Cikampek section could be overcome. A toll road operator firm manager stated that here on Sunday, as reported by republika.co.id.

"Therefore, state-owned toll road operator PT Jasa Marga is still working hard to overcome the causes of congestion in the Jakarta-Cikampek Section of the Trans-Java Toll Road," said Desy Arryani, Jasa Marga's president director.

She promised that in the next six months or before Lebaran 2019, the density of the Jakarta-Cikampek section would be significantly reduced, so it could optimize Trans Java connectivity.

"The travel time is very short, ideally it will take less than 10 hours. We hope that in Eid 2019 it (Jakarta-Cikampek) will be smooth. It can be 10 hours travel time if Jakarta Cikampek is already smooth," she said.

As of October 2018, both from the Trans Java network and outside Trans Java, Jasa Marga operates 787.5 kilometers of toll roads, and by the end of 2018 the company targets to operate 984 km of toll roads.
