Today, Indonesia's economy maintains rapid development, but due to factors such as the weakening of the global economy and the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the Indonesian economy is also facing certain pressures. Even in the face of economic difficulties, the Indonesian government has put forward a plan to strengthen infrastructure to drive economic growth. The outlook for economic growth is optimistic, the investment policy is open, and the infrastructure market is attractive for international investment.

Construction of the Yogyakarta-Bavan toll road in Indonesia is currently underway. The project is handled by a consortium, Jasamarga Jogja Bawan. The project involves the construction of a 76-kilometer toll road at a cost of more than $992 million.

The project is divided into six separate parts and is managed by the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR). The charging link should be completed by the end of 2024, as long as the work goes according to plan. Once the Yogyakarta-Bhavin Toll Road project is completed, it will be connected with the Semarang-Solo Toll Road and the Solo-Yogakarta International Airport Kulonprogo Toll Road. The latter itself is currently under construction. Keywords: engineering construction, engineering news

Work on the Yogyakarta-Bawen toll road project was initially expected to start earlier. The link's concession package was signed in the fourth quarter of 2020, with construction originally scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2021. However, the project was delayed due to various factors including the Covid-19 pandemic.Editor/XingWentao
