Armfalcon.com, JAKARTA — Minister of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Basuki Hadimuljono targets the Cileunyi-Sumedang-Dawuan (Cisumdawu) Toll Road to be fully operational in June this year.
“The Cisumdawu Toll Road is a national strategic project that the community has been waiting for. It will immediately be operational while still prioritizing quality, safety and aesthetics. The Cisumdawu Toll Road section is also to support the operations of Kertajati Airport,” said Basuki in his statement in Jakarta, Monday (22 /5/2023).
Basuki instructed the completion of the construction of the 29.3-kilometre (km) Cisumdawu Toll Road Section 4 – Section 6 (Cimalaka – Dawuan) in early June 2023, so that all 62 km can operate. Previously, during the 2023 Eid homecoming, Sections 4-6 of the Cisumdawu Toll Road had been opened functionally.
Currently, Section 1 Cileunyi – Pamulihan (11.45 Km) has been operating on the Cisumdawu Toll Road since January 2022. Followed by Section 2 Pamulihan – Sumedang (17.05 Km) and Section 3 Sumedang – Cimalaka (4.05 Km) which are operating since December 2022 to support smooth traffic during Christmas and New Year 2022/2023.
The Cisumdawu Toll Road consists of 6 sections which were built under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme with a construction cost of IDR 5.5 trillion. Of the six sections, Sections 1 and 2 are carried out by the Government as part of the viability gap fund (VGF) to increase the investment feasibility of the toll road. While Sections 3-6 are carried out by the PT CKJT Toll Road Business Entity.
Head of DKI Jakarta-West Java National Road Implementation Center, Brawijaya, said that there is a special technology applied in the construction of the Cisumdawu Toll Road, namely the EPS geofoam technology which is applied to the construction of Section 5A in Cipamekar Village, Conggeang District, Sumedang Regency.
“In Section 5A, there are parts of unstable and watery soil that cannot be handled by backfill or ordinary construction. This is the first to be carried out on a mass scale with a volume of nearly 40 thousand cubic meters. This light embankment will reduce the risk of landslides,” said Brawijaya.
Geofoam EPS is a material in the form of light weight blocks and is commonly used abroad, especially for handling unstable subsoil.
