Toll road project begins

UJUNGPANDANG, South Sulawesi: Minister of Public Works Radinal Moochtar launched the construction of another toll road in the city on Monday.

The 10.31 kilometer road will link the Makasar Industrial Zone with the Soekarno- Hatta Port and will be an extension of the Tallo Lama toll road which links the city with the Hasanuddin Airport, according to a statement by the ministry's office in Jakarta.

The project is estimated to cost Rp 76.35 billion ($36 million) and will be built by an Indonesian consortium comprising the state-owned Pesero Jasa Marga, PT Tujuh Wali Wali and PT Bosowa.

Radinal said the toll road project is part of the city's integrated economic development program. (emb)
