JAKARTA - The Jombang-Mojokerto toll road development along 24,9 kilometers has been completed and inaugurated directly by President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) on Sunday (10/9). The toll roads include Jombang-Mojokerto Barat Section 2 along 19,9 km and Mojokerto Barat-Mojokerto Section 3 along 5,0 km.

On the occasion, President Jokowi told that based on information from the Mojokerto Regent, the construction of the Mojokerto-Kertosono toll road should have been completed since 1996. The existence of the newly inaugurated Jombang-Mojokerto toll road makes the outer ring road of the city not jammed, as many container cars and trucks will use this toll road.

President Jokowi advised that the benefits of Kertosono-Mojokerto toll road can be felt directly by the community. "I remind to the local government and toll road users to participate in ensuring Kertosono-Mojokerto toll road can be felt by the people directly," said President Jokowi as reported from setkab.go.id (11/9).

Previously Jokowi explained that he was very enthusiastic to inaugurate the toll because it believes the importance of connectivity to improve the economy of the community. President realized to reach an area in Indonesia sometimes is not easy because of so vast territory.

"From Sabang to Merauke, from Miangas to Rote. As President I also felt difficult to reach an area, especially people must feel it. I can imagine," he said.
