The toll roads business involves both the construction and the operation of toll roads, mainly in the Greater Jakarta area of West Java, Indonesia’s most densely populated area.

Indonesian public spending is being focused on this particular kind of infrastructure, with ongoing long-term plans for more toll roads to be built. Regular bi-annual toll hikes, which allow greater revenue growth, are permitted by the government. While some of these hikes had been previously delayed as certain roads needed more maintenance, they are now looking more likely.
