The administration of President Joko Widodo is accelerating the construction of toll roads in and outside Java. The toll roads are constructed as part of the bid to make areas more interconnected. By opening up isolated areas, the government expects to give a boost to national and regional economy.

Nine Trans Jawa toll road segments are slated to be inaugurated until the end of 2018. The toll roads will enter service one by one from July to December. The nine segments, some have been inaugurated while some others are still pending, are Pejagan-Pemalang, Solo-Sragen, Sragen-Ngawi, Porong-Gempol, Salatiga-Kartosuro, Pemalang-Batang, Batang-Semarang, Wilangan-Kertosono, and Pasuruan-Grati-Probolinggo. Meanwhile, the 1,150-km Merak-Banyuwangi toll road will be fully connected by the end of 2019.

The president said that the government has planned the construction of 667 kilometers of new national roads and 905 kilometers of toll roads in 219. He said his administration would continue doing breakthroughs to accelerate national infrastructure construction through non-national budget financing schemes, which is involving the private sector. The government allocates Rp420 trillion for infrastructure budget in 2019.
