The Jakarta Post
The Public Works and Housing Ministry has decided to increase the tolls of nine roads across the country this Friday, after the roads were found to have fulfilled minimum service standards, reports tempo.co.
“The new rates will be enforced starting at midnight on Dec. 8,” Toll Road Regulatory Agency (BPJT) head Herry Trisaputra Zuna said on Monday in Jakarta.
The nine toll roads and their rate increases are: the Belawan-Medan-Tanjung Morawa with a rate increase of 10.7 percent, the Serpong-Pondok Aren (6.86 percent), the Cawang-Tomang-Grogol-Pluit (5.91 percent), the Cawang-Tanjung Priok-Ancol-Pluit (also 5.91 percent), the Semarang-ABC (4.04 percent), the Palimanan-Plumbon-Kanci (7.29 percent), the Surabaya-Gempol (6.3 percent), the Ujung Pandang (6.64 percent) and the Nusa Dua-Ngurah Rai-Benoa (4.82 percent).
Harry said the fee increase was calculated according to the inflation rate of the last two years in each region.
Meanwhile, four other toll roads that have already increased their rates are the Tangerang-Merak toll road, the Cikampek-Palimanan toll road, the Gempol-Pandaan toll road and the Makassar IV toll road.
Public Works and Housing Minister Basuki Hadimuljono said the rate increases were nominal at only Rp 500 (4 US cents) to Rp 1,000. (bbn)
