Construction of the Lubuk Linggau-Curup-Bengkulu Toll Road


The Indonesian government continues to improve connectivity between the centres of economic growth on the island of Sumatra. Besides the construction and maintenance of national arterial roads, the construction of the Trans Sumatra Toll Road aims to cut logistical costs so that the competitiveness of Indonesian products increases.

The 2,952 Km Trans Sumatra Toll Road consists of the main corridor 2,062 Km and the 890 Km supporting corridor continues to be carried out and some have been completed. One of the toll roads that has begun to be built is the 95.8 Km Lubuk Linggau-Curup-Bengkulu which is part of the Palembang-Bengkulu supporting corridor for a total of 351.5 Km.

In  March 2019 the Lubuk Linggau-Curup-Bengkulu Toll Road Concession Agreement (PPJT) was signed in Indonesia  . The toll road consists of 3 sections: the 17.6 km section of Taba Penanjung-Bengkulu, 23.7 km of Kepahiang-Taba Penanjung and 54.4 km of Lubuk Linggau-Kepahiang with a total investment cost of Rp 33 Trillion. The construction of the toll road will have a 7 Km tunnel through a row of hills and a long span bridge that stretches over the valley with a pillar height of 45-90 m.

The target for completion of construction of the entire toll road is December 2022. Visit http://bpjt.pu.go.id/berita/construction-of-the-958-km-lubuk-linggau-curup-bengkulu-toll-road-begins for further information. 20/19.
