Jakarta: President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo inaugurated the Jakarta-Cikampek Elevated Toll Road on Thursday, December 12, 2019. The elevated toll road is expected to ease traffic congestion at the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road.
"The construction of the Jakarta-Cikampek II Elevated Toll Road has been completed and can be immediately used," the president said here on Thursday, December 12, 2019.
President Jokowi revealed many people complained to him about traffic jams at the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road. He hopes the issue will be resolved after the inauguration of the elevated toll road.
"I hope it can ease traffic congestion. Residents will no longer be stuck for hours. It is expected to reduce traffic congestion by 30 percent. Drivers will be able to save their fuel," the former Jakarta governor remarked.
According to reports, the elevated toll road will be fully operational before the start of Christmas and New Year holidays. However, the 36.4 kilometer toll road can only be used by small vehicles.
In order to prevent traffic violations, 113 cctv cameras will be attached along the elevated toll road. Moreover, eight emergency lines will be prepared.
The emergency lines are integrated with every interchange at the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road. The emergency lines are located at KM 13, 17, 21, 24, 28, 31, 36 and 38.
