Jayapura, Jubi – The construction of sea toll must go through several procedures and paperwork, the head of the Regional Development Acceleration in Papua, Oma Laduani Ladamai said this week.
“Sea toll can not be done after all documents are completed including environmental assessment, spatial and land acquisition study,” Ladamai said in Jayapura, Papua.
He further explained it planned to build a marine highway from Sorong to Mimika and continued to Asmat and Merauke.
Besides that there would be sea toll from Sorong to Biak and from Biak to Serui and Nabire, then Sarmi and Jayapura. The most important thing in the sea, there should be a toll-freight transport by points, because his expectations of how the existence of the toll lower the price.
“The issue we have to solve in the future is about the development of commodity-based leading commodity focused customs territory, so that the marine highway system could be used efficiently, “he said.
Previously head of Transportation Papua, Joseph Yambe Yabdi assessed Yapen Islands and Merauke were not very strategic for sea lane highway transportation.
“Although both of these areas have been recommended by the Central Government, but we think they are not strategic because it will be difficult to connect to the Central Mountains region,” Yusuf Yambe Yabdi said on Wednesday (02/11/2015). (Alexander Loen)
