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.

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.
