REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, BANDARLAMPUNG -- Bandarlampung Mayor Herman HN hopes that the construction of the 150-kilometer long Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar section of the Trans-Sumatra toll road can be accelerated to reduce the number of trucks and container carriers passing through Bandarlampung.

"We hope that the Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar section will be completed soon, so that trucks and container carriers no longer pass through the city's streets," Herman stated here on Thursday.

He noted that trucks carrying heavy goods, which pass through the city streets, can damage the roads, and the government has to spend huge amount of funds for carrying out road repair work.

He further added that if the Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar toll road's construction is sped up, it will be better as the government can save funds that would otherwise be diverted for road repair work.

"The presence of the Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar toll road section is economically very beneficial because it will boost regional economic growth," Herman remarked.

In the meantime, Lampung provincial administration continues to evaluate the progress of land acquisition for the construction of the 150-kilometer long Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar toll road segment.

Provincial administration spokesman Adeham remarked here on Thursday that the highway construction team has completed the installation of central pegs at Bakauheni and Tanjung Binang in South Lampung.

"The team has explained to all village heads and community figures in South Lampung district about the construction of the Bakauheni-Terbanggi Besar toll road," Adeham stated.
