Upgrade and maintenance work for 11,578km of strategic non-national roads in Indonesia may receive funding from the country's Public Works Ministry. No specific budget allocation will be set aside for the strategic non-national roads. However, Indonesia's central government could provide funding for the development of these roads where improvements are seen as a necessity. The government has already allocated US$ 3.3 billion under the national budget to finance the 38,569.82km national roads. Meanwhile $143.5 million has been set aside by the Indonesian Public Works Ministry for the Java Island's North Coast roads in the country. The sum will be used for maintenance, widening and improvement of the 1,412km Java's North Coast roads. The conditions of these roads, which cover five provinces, will be upgraded to improve traffic flow.
