Vehicles Reached 27 Thousand during Pandaan-Malang Toll Road First Day Operation
Malang (5/15) - A day right after the toll road inauguration by the President of RI Joko Widodo, Pandaan-Malang Toll Road has already begun its nontariff operation at 7 a.m.
The 27,163 vehicles on the first day demonstrate the traveler's enthusiasm for traveling along the road. The toll road itself is operated by PT Jasamarga Pandaan Malang (JPM), PT Jasa Marga (Persero) Tbk's subsidiary.
Out of this number, 13,455 vehicles were heading for Pandaan while the rest, 13,708 vehicles, were heading Malang. Class I vehicles dominated the route.
PT JPM President Director Agus Purnomo believes the number will continuously rise, particularly during weekends.
“Traveling between Surabaya and Malang through Pandaan-Malang Toll Road will certainly save time. It only takes an hour or 1.5 hours, faster than traveling by arterial roads (non-toll road) which could take 2 to 3 hours. This would certainly benefit travelers on family gatherings or on Malang Raya tourist destination visits,” Agus explained.
The 38.488-km Pandaan-Malang Toll Road has three inaugurated segments, i.e., the 15.475-km Pandaan-Purwodadi Segment 1, the 8.50-km Purwodadi-Lawang Segment 2 and the 7.51-km Lawang-Singosari Segment 3.
“PT JPM will also improve its 2019 homebound and post-homebound holiday services through the functional operation of the 4.75-km Singosari-Pakis Segment 4 which has reached an 82.327% construction-progress. Meanwhile, the 3.113-km Pakis-Malang Segment 5 will still be in a construction stage with a 37.293% progress,” he elaborated.
This toll road with its beautiful landscapes will operate without charge until Eid holiday to familiarize the public to the road and to provide more route options for homebound and post-homebound travelers during the 2019 peak Eid-al Fitr holiday season.
