Padaleunyi Toll Road




The Padaleunyi Toll Road connects the town of Padalarang in the west of Bandung with the town of Cileunyi in the east of the city (hence the name: Padaleunyi), covering the distance of 35.62 kilometers (about 22.13 miles). The road was constructed in two phases. The first one was completed in January 1991, and the second phase in April of the same year. The Padaleunyi currently has eight exits (Padalarang, Baros, Pasteur, Pasir Koja, Kopo, Moh. Toha, Buah Batu, and Cileunyi) that conveniently connect various parts of the city and its suburban areas.

In April 2005, the Padaleunyi toll road was connected to the Cipularang (Cikampek - Purwakarta - Padalarang) and the Cikampek - Jakarta toll roads, making the road travel between Jakarta and Bandung a lot faster and more convenient. Many toll road constructions are now underway to connect major cities on the Java island.

Like many other toll roads here, the Padaleunyi was constructed and operated by PT. Jasamarga (Persero), Tbk. (Indonesia Highway Corporation), a public company which - according to its official website - now operates nearly 500 kilometers (310 miles) of toll roads or about 78 percent of the existing toll roads in Indonesia.

Everything about this picture looks normal to me except that people are driving on the wrong sides of the road. I guess you drive on the left side like they do in England. We drive on the right side. So our highways would be just the opposite of these.

tollways or expressway as we call it here are usually a great help to travel long distance route.
