Info on Toll Jagorawi

The Jagorawi Toll Road was the first toll road in Indonesia. Construction on the highway began in 1973 by some 200 workers at a cost of 350 million Indonesian rupiah per kilometer; it was officially opened by President of Indonesia Suharto on 9 March 1978.[1]

The Jagorawi Toll Road links the capital city of Jakarta to the West Javanese cities of Bogor and Ciawi. It has a length of more than 60 km going north and southbound and is operated by PT Jasa Marga, a state-owned enterprise. The name Jagorawi comes from the acronym of areas which it connects which are (Ja)karta - Bo(gor) - Ci(awi).

The Jagorawi Toll Road has two gas stations that belong to Pertamina which are combined with restaurants, rest areas, and even a factory outlet.

The toll road is operated by PT Jasa Marga Tbk.
