The plan calls for no less than 2,500km of toll roads to be built over the next five years.

In all the work is expected to cost anything from US$16.5 billion up to as much as $24.74 billion.

To pay for the works, a variety of financing methods are being used, with PPPs, loans and international firms being involved.

Key roads being built in Indonesia include the Trans Sumatra, Trans-Java Toll, Jakarta-Bogor-Depok-Tangerang-Bekasi and Sulawesi and Kalimantan routes.

Construction work is being carried out at a fast pace and during the April-June 2020 period, around 1,852km of the planned toll roads should be ready.

The road building work is ahead of the schedule set out in the 2015-2019 National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) at present.
