He explained, the level of progress in the construction of a number of toll roads, including the progress of the Batang-Semarang Toll Road 86 percent, the Salatiga-Kartosuro Toll Road 78 percent and Pasuruan-Grati 60 percent.

As proclaimed, the Minister of PUPR, Basuki Hadimuljono, in a number of previous occasions said that the nine Trans Java toll road segments will operate gradually from July to December 2018.

In September 2018, the toll road which is scheduled to operate is the Sragen-Ngawi Toll Road (51 kilometers) and the Porong-Gempol Toll Road (6 kilometers).

Then in October 2018 the Salatiga-Kartosuro (32 kilometers) toll road will operate.

Furthermore, in November 2018 will operate Pemalang-Batang Toll Road (33 kilometers) and Batang-Semarang Toll Road (74 kilometers).

Finally, in December 2018, the Wilangan-Kertosono Toll Road (37 kilometers) and the Pasuruan-Grati-Probolinggo Toll Road (44 kilometers) will operate.
