BANDUNG - Secretary of West Java Iwa Karniwa ensured the construction of the first phase of the North-South Link (NS Link) toll road Pasirkoja-Soekarno Hatta had been ripe and had to be executed.
Certainty was obtained after his party held a follow-up meeting with the Toll Road Management Agency (BPJT) of the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing, PT Jasa Sarana and the City Government of Bandung. "The positive construction of the first toll road will be carried out where the construction of Pasirkoja-Sukarno Hatta is possible," he said at Gedung Sate, Bandung, Tuesday (12/3).
According to him, PT Citra Marga Lintas Jabar as the NS Link consortium has also prepared the first phase of the development plan. Development readiness is definitely waiting for the green light from West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil. "We are waiting for the leadership's decision, we as the staff of the Governor prepare everything. So when it is decided our leadership is ready, "he said.
Iwa said that the first preparation of the results of the study conducted by the proposers had been evaluated through the BPJT both from a technical aspect through the Director of Barriers or Network Director. On the other hand, this project has also been legally reviewed so that there are no legal issues.
"Now it's got a bright spot. That the steps taken were the 3.8-kilometer Soreang-Pasirkoja canal to Pasirkoja-Sukarno Hatta. While the declaration to the District Head is in accordance with the study and Cicaheum according to the proposal of the Mayor of Bandung, "he said.
This toll road will certainly help the Bandung City Government greatly considering the development of the number of roads in the capital city of West Java is only 0.001%. With the existence of this toll road, according to Iwa, it is a breath of fresh air, given the more limited current land.
"This is a breath of fresh air where it adds an elevated road for almost 14 km. And this is likely to overcome congestion in the city of Bandung. And this project is part of the Purbaleunyi Toll Road area. Thus, it is not only NS Link, but it is a regional toll road, "he said.
