Elevated Toll Roads The Way to Go: Jakarta Developers

The Jakarta administration’s plan to build six new toll roads is expected to increase the total amount of road space as a proportion of the city’s area into double digits for the first time, officials said over the weekend.

Sarwo Handayani, head of the Jakarta Development Planning Board (Bappeda), said that the elevated motorways, running a combined 67.9 kilometers and expected to cost Rp 40 trillion ($4.5 billion), would take the total road space from the current 7.2 percent of Jakarta’s overall area of 650 square kilometers, to 10 percents.
