TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - State airport operator Angkasa Pura II (AP II) relocated Soekarno-Hatta Airport`s North Perimeter Road as it was affected by the airport`s third runway construction project. A new road axis for the replacement has been prepared.
“The road axis and the contractor are already set,” said Senior Manager of Branch Communication and Legal of the Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Febri Toga Simatupang, Friday, September 14.
Deputy Executive General Manager of Airport Construction Division Project Area I, Doddy Dewayanto, explained that the North Perimeter Road is moved about 500 meters from the current position. “The length is same, about 6,5 kilometers,” he said.
