The Government of Indonesia led by President Joko Widodo realizes that connectivity and mobility access needs to be improved to boost the country's economic growth through the development of various infrastructures.
To realize inter-regional connectivity, the government plans to build 865km of new highways. Good traffic management is required to improve the connectivity and mobility of people who will utilize these infrastructures.
