Reported from Kompas.com, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PUPR) continues to build the Trans-Papua road as an effort to improve connectivity, open isolated areas, and reduce the prices of goods, especially in the mountainous region. One of the roads handled is between 575 kilometers between Jayapura and Wamena.
At present the two roads in the area are fully connected, with details of 345 kilometers in the form of asphalt and 230 kilometers in the form of dirt and gravel roads which will be gradually upgraded for quality. PUPR Minister Basuki Hadimuljono said, the construction of the Trans-Papua road will continue and is targeted to be fully connected this year.
"The construction of the road is not merely connecting the Papua Province with West Papua, but also opening an isolated area and can reduce the cost of numbers," Basuki said in a written statement on Monday (1/14/2019).
Meanwhile, Head of the XVIII National Road Implementation Center (BBPJN), DG of Highways of the Ministry of Public Works, Osman Harianto Marbun said, there are eight districts in the Papua Mountains region with increasing connectivity as the Trans-Papua road opens the Jayapura-Wamena section. The eight districts are Yalimo, Jayawijaya, Tolikara, Puncak Jaya, Puncak (Sinak-Ilaga), Lanny Jaya, Memberamo Tengah, and Nduga.
The high public demand for road access is because they need this infrastructure so far to send logistics to districts in the Central Mountains. Thus, the shipping costs they incur will be reduced.
