Utilizing Hawkeye 2000, owned by Jasa Marga’s Subsidary, Jasamarga Tollroad Maintenance, the survey was conducted at Jagorawi, Cipularang, and Padaleunyi Toll Road in both directions.
Jagorawi and Cipularang Toll Roads achieved the target 3-star or better safety rating for vehicle occupants. Furthermore, 75.6% of the Jagorawi Toll Road attained a 4-star rating and 5.8% a 5-star rating by total length. 41.5% of Cipularang Toll Road achieved a 4-star rating by total length.
Besides star rating the toll roads, by the end of the project in 2020, Jasa Marga has completed the official training and accreditation for iRAP assessments and gained an iRAP Certificate of Accreditation for three employees.
Speaking from the virtual signing event, the President Director of Jasa Marga, Subakti Syukur, MM, confirmed his delight to achieve a technical standard that takes into account road safety in line with UN Global Road Safety Performance Targets 3 and 4.
“These are our company milestones to ensure safer roads based on the 3-star or better iRAP Global Standard for Road Infrastructure Safety.
The President Director added, “Further, we hope this will be the commencement of establishing InaRAP, an iRAP partnership in Indonesia”.
iRAP CEO Rob McInerney said, “We congratulate PT Jasa Marga on their leadership and commitment to achieving a 3-star or better safety rating on their toll road network. Their achievement will deliver safety benefits to their customers and is a significant contribution to meeting the United Nations Global Road Safety Performance Targets for 3-star or better roads worldwide.
“Their commitment and work towards establishing a locally owned and led InaRAP road assessment programme will see their success translate into safer roads for all Indonesians as part of the Second Decade of Action for Road Safety,” he said.
According to iRAP’s Vaccines for Roads Big Data Tool, 87 lives are lost every day on roads in Indonesia, 749 people suffer limb fractures and 155 suffer brain injuries or are paralysed.
Achieving UN Targets 3 and 4 in Indonesia stands to save more than 10,700 lives per year with an economic benefit of USD$160 billion and $17 benefit for every $1 invested. Private sector leadership and investment like that of PT Jasa Marga will be a key part of unlocking those benefits.
