Work is now underway on the Yogyakarta-Bawen toll road in Indonesia. The project is being handled by a consortium, Jasamarga Jogja Bawan. The project involves building a 76km tolled highway and the work is costing over US$992 million.

The project has been split into six separate sections and is being managed by Indonesia’s Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR). As long as the work remains on schedule, the tolled link should be complete by late 2024.

Once the Yogyakarta-Bawen toll road project is complete, it will connect with both the Semarang-Solo Toll Road and the Solo-Yogyakarta International Airport Kulonprogo Toll Road. The latter is itself under construction at present.

Work on the Yogyakarta-Bawen toll road project was originally expected to commence earlier. The concession package for the link was signed in the fourth quarter of 2020 and construction was originally intended to commence in the third quarter of 2021. However, the project has been delayed by various factors, including the COVID pandemic.
