We are happy to report some great developments for Lampung which also will be in favour of our region.
For years already it is the intention to build a tollroad that will connect Bakauheni at the most southern edge of Sumatra and Bandar Aceh in the very North. That covers a distance of 2818 km.
The road will connect Bandar Lampung, Palembang, Djambi, Pekanbaru and Medan to Bandar Aceh. Branches will also connect to Bengkulu, Padang and Sibolga.

On the 30th of April 2015 President Joko Widodo has given the official starting signal for the project. At that occasion he also stated that the section from Bakauheni till Palembang with a length of approx. 400 km will be ready for use by August 2018 when the SEA Games will be held in Palembang and Jakarta. The first stretch, from Bakauheni to Terbanggi Besar with a length of 140 km should be ready by the end of 2017. Two sections were officially opened by President Jokowi on 21st of nJanuary 2018. That is good news for all businesses in Lampung. For AG Hotel dan Restoran the nearest access to the tollroad will be located near Lematang at approx. 30 km and then Bakauheni will be at a one hour drive.

Another attractive development is the extension of the Airport Raden Inten II of Tanjung Karang. The existing runway will be extended to some greater length and a taxiway will be built so that aircrafts before takeoff and after landing do not have to use the runway as a taxiway to the terminal. This will increase the capacity of the airport. The terminal has already been extended. Once the tollroad being ready the airport will get a direct access to the tollroad.
An important improvement is the increased number of flight connections to more cities than before. In the future the airport will get the status of International Airport.
