The 20.5 kilometer Gempol-Pasuruan toll road is part of the Trans Java toll road project in East Java.

The president said construction of toll road projects, which are crucial for goods and service distribution, has been completed one by one.

Massive infrastructure projects including toll roads, railways , ports and airports have been built or under construction all over the country.

The section was built by PT Transmarga Jatim Pasuruan (TJP) a subsidiary of PT Jasamarga Gempol Pasuruan (JGP).

It was built at a total cost of Rp4.03 trillion including Rp2.82 trillion in loan from a bank syndicate.
