Minister of PUPR Basuki Hadimuljono recently announced that the project will be inaugurated by President Joko "Jokowi" Widoodo on Thursday, December 12, 2019. He also revealed that the elevated toll road will open two or three days after its inauguration.
"The quicker the better. It is expected to be operational before December 20," Basuki said when inspecting the project here on Tuesday, December 10, 2019.
Basuki hopes that the elevated toll road can help reduce traffic congestion at the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road during Christmas and New Year holidays later this month. He revealed that the elevated toll road will be free of charge until the end of the Chrismtas and New Year holidays.
According to Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi, the maximum speed at the elevated toll road will be set at 60 km/per hour. In addition, the Ministry of Transportation will cooperate with the National Police to prevent violations of traffic regulations at the elevated toll road.
"They will take firm action if a driver exceeds the speed limit," Budi said when visiting the project here on Sunday, December 8, 2019.
