We say “if” because plans to implement electronic road pricing (ERP) in Jakarta have been hampered by numerous setbacks since 2012. But now there is renewed talk that ERP is coming very soon, including details such as which major roads will be affected by the policy.

Jakarta Transportation Agency Head Syafrin Liputo today said ERP regulations are being finalized ahead of an expected approval sometime in 2023.

Under the existing draft of the regulations, which was drawn up by the Jakarta Provincial Government under former Governor Anies Baswedan’s leadership, we know, at least preliminarily, the 25 major roads where traffic control will be implemented using ERP.

They are as follows:

  • Jalan Pintu Besar Selatan
  • Jalan Gajah Mada
  • Jalan Hayam Wuruk
  • Jalan Majapahit
  • Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat
  • Jalan Moh. Husni Thamrin
  • Jalan Jenderal Sudirman
  • Jalan Sisingamangaraja
  • Jalan Panglima Polim
  • Jalan Fatmawati (from the Jalan Ketimun 1 intersection to the Jalan TB Simatupang intersection)
  • Jalan Suryopranoto
  • Jalan Balikpapan
  • Jalan Kyai Caringin
  • Jalan Tomang Raya
  • Jalan Jenderal S. Parman (from the Jalan Tomang Raya intersection to the Jalan Gatot Subroto intersection)
  • Jalan Gatot Subroto
  • Jalan M. T. Haryono
  • Jalan D. I. Panjaitan
  • Jalan Jenderal A. Yani (from the Jalan Bekasi Timur Raya intersection to the Jalan Perintis Kemerdekaan intersection)
  • Jalan Pramuka
  • Jalan Salemba Raya
  • Jalan Kramat Raya
  • Jalan Pasar Senen
  • Jalan Gunung Sahari
  • Jalan H. R. Rasuna Said

ERP systems charge drivers passing through gates using an automatic system utilizing receivers placed on cars. Under the draft regulations, the fee to pass the above major roads will range between IDR5,000-19,900 (US$0.32-1.28), effective everyday from 5am to 10pm.

Since ERP was initiated in 2012, the project struggled to get off the ground due to bureaucratic hurdles.
