Cikampek - Palimanan Toll Road - a journey


I read the news from Jakarta Post about the construction of Cikampek - Palimanan Toll Road. At last this project come to construction stage after land acquisition matter finally come to complete.

Actually I'am lucky because have been there only a month to assist the project team for identify the temporary works estimates of the project.


Cikampek-Palimanan Toll Road is a toll road that connects the existing Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road and Palimanan-Kanci Toll Road and is part of the Trans-Java Toll Road. The total length of the Trans Java Toll Road is 653 kilometers.

The project is estimated to cost IDR12.5tn (1.37bn) and entails the construction, ownership and operation of a 116km toll road connecting Cikampek and Palimanan in the West Java province.


The new highway will be built by a joint-venture company, PT Lintas Marga Sedaya (LMS), and controlled by PLUS Expressways (PLUS), which holds a 55% stake, with local partner Baskhara Utama Sedaya holding the remaining stake. LMS has been granted a 35-year concession by the Government of Indonesia (GOI) to manage the highway, slated for completion in 2014.

The toll road construction is divided into six phases and will have four lanes, with an option for expansion to six lanes in future.

  1. Section I, Cikopo-Kalijati (29.12 kilometers), Land acquisition has already finished
  2. Section II, Kalijati-Subang (9.56 kilometers), Land acquisition has already finished
  3. Section III, Subang-Cikedung (31.37 kilometers), Land acquisition has already finished
  4. Section IV, Cikedung-Kertajati (17.66 kilometers), Land acquisition has already finished
  5. Section V, Kertajati-Sumberjaya (14.51 kilometers), Land acquisition has already finished
  6. Section VI, Sumberjaya-Palimanan (13.78 kilometers), Land acquisition was 58.34 percent complete and predicted to be 100 percent complete by December 2011


The 116Km highway will connect the two other highways, which would be linked in the future to form the Trans Jawa Highway, which will act as the main land corridor to the island improving access between the West and Central Java regions.

The Indonesian Government believes the project will serve as a key part of the 653km Trans Java Toll Road (TJTR) network, which the GOI plans to complete by 2014, enabling the development of the Northern Java Economic Development Corridor.

The development and operation of other planned toll road sections within the TJTR network are highly dependent on the completion of the Trans Jawa Highway project.
The project will support the northern Java coast lane which is one of the intercity road lanes connecting Jakarta and other vital cities in Java, as well as connect the existing busy Jakarta-Cikampek toll road to West Java's Cirebon.



The Indonesian Government has offered the 1,000km Trans Jawa Highway project to 25 concession companies.


The temporary works that need to compute with the cost involving the temporary road diversion at National Road where the Cipal highway intercepts a national road at Cikampek at Chainage 92.920. The alignment of the national road is in the north-south direction and is nearly perpendicular to the highway to be built. it the end of Jakarta - Cikampek Toll Road with massive traffic volume.
