Tenders for $2.5 bln in Toll Road Projects

The government plans to hold a tender for 11 toll road projects worth around Rp23 trillion ($2.53 billion) next year in a bid to boost economic growth, a public works ministry official said on Wednesday, Reuters reported.

Hisnu Pawenang, head of the toll road regulatory body, said the government would offer 350 km of toll road projects in provinces including West Java, East Java, North Sumatra, South Sumatera, Riau, Bali and North Sulawesi.

Construction is expected to start late 2009 or early 2010 after announcing the winning bidders in late 2008, Pawenang said.
