The toll road which will link the regencies of Bandung , Garut and Tasikmalaya will reduce traffic congestion in the southern part of West Java, head of the West Java regional development Deny Juanda said here on Wednesday.
Deny said the West Java regional administration is ready to accelerate development of the project to start from the Gedebage district in the city of Bandung.
The toll road would extend from Gedebage via Majalaya, Nagreg in the Bandung regency to Limbangan in the regency of Garut and Rajapolah in the regency of Tasikmalaya.
"After building the Cileunyi-Tasikmalaya toll road, the next project is toll road between Banjar and Pangandaran," Deny said.
The construction of the toll roads is also aimed at facilitating economic development in those areas.
"New economic growth centers are expected to grow near the toll roads," he said, adding the toll roads would encourage development of new industrial and settlement centers.(*)
