Jakarta - Semarang-Demak Toll Road construction along 27 Km is ready to begin in 2019. The progress of the toll road construction phase is marked by the establishment of the Semarang Demak Toll Road Business Entity (BUJT) by the Consortium of PT Pembangunan Perumahan, PT Wijaya Karya and PT Misi Mulia Metrical as the winner of the Semarang-Demak Toll Road concession tender.
The Toll Road Regulatory Agency (BPJT) of the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) is targeting the Semarang-Demak toll road concession (PPJT) to be carried out in September 2019.
BPJT Head Danang Parikesit said that currently the contract signing process was still awaiting the approval of the Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani Indrawati so that the sea embankment toll road project could get a guarantee from PT. Indonesia Infrastructure Guarantee (PT. PII).
"The signing of the PPJT will be held simultaneously in September 2019 with two other forms of agreement namely the joint signing of the Ministry of Finance as a guarantor and joint investment credit with the Indonesian Infrastructure Guarantee Fund (PII)," explained Danang.
This toll road development in addition to increasing connectivity from Semarang to Demak to Gresik and Surabaya, as well as functioning as a sea embankment on the north coast of the City of Semarang to prevent tidal floods that often inundate the Genuk, Kaligawe and surrounding areas. "It is hoped that this toll road construction will at the same time revitalize the industrial estate there. "Once the toll road is built, the industrial estate will no longer be affected by the rob, so that it can revive the regional economy," said Danang.
The construction of the toll road with an investment of around Rp 15.3 trillion is targeted to last for 2 years. The Semarang-Demak toll road construction requires 1,887,000 square meters of land. The land is divided into two sections, namely section I of Semarang City and Section II of Demak Regency.
Technically, the Semarang-Demak Toll Road is planned to have four interchanges, namely Kaligawe, Terboyo, Sayung and Demak. The planned speed of 100 km / hour with the direction of widening on this toll road is widening inward with a 2x2 starting lane and 2x3 ending lane. (*)
