To support this, It is implement joint declaration to promote the accelerated development of highway corridor Bogor-Sukabumi-Cianjur-Bandung in Horison Hotel Sukabumi City, Thursday (15/12).
In addition, the construction of this highway should also be done as a solution to overcome the traffic that is always happen in the usual path that passes connecting these four areas.
Congestion often occurs in the path of Cianjur-Bogor because the number of tourists in the peak area. Cianjur-Sukabumi and Bogor-Sukabumi also frequent traffic jams with many built factories in the region. Bandung-Cianjur also frequent traffic jams due to the winding roads in the area Padalarang & Cipatat.

While the development problems is increasingly complex, so that it should be good cooperation between the regions to support the integration of development.
West Java provincial government has sought to tackle congestion. One solution that has been implemented is the construction of the loop line in Cianjur and circular path Sukabumi in which is still under construction today.
BOCIMI toll road (Bogor-Ciawi-Sukabumi) can be a perfect solution, given cikampek-palimanan (CIPALI) toll road construction can also be a solution to break the bottleneck in the northern coasts.

Currently the construction of toll bocimi will enter the second stage, Padalarang Ciranjang path, which is scheduled to begin in 2018-2023 with a length of about 33km. One problem that has always hampered the development in West Java this is a problem of spatial changes.
