Republic of Indonesia: Road Preservation Direction for National Highways in Indonesia

Indonesie: La Politique Indonesienne D'Entretien Des Routes Nationales

Located in southeast Asia, Indonesia, which has a population of approximately 220 million, is the world's largest archipelago nation, made up of 17,550 islands. Ninety and ninety two percent of freight and passenger traffic, respectively, is handled by the Indonesian road network, which consists of 34,628 km of arterial roads, and includes 17,919 bridges. The author examines Indonesia's current road network, which is in deteriorated condition. Road improvement priorities are also discussed. These include road widening, expansion of important national roads to highway standards, and new road construction, including roads to support toll road development. The author also examines three categories of road preservation: routine maintenance, rehabilitation, and reconstruction.
