Greener Infrastructure Project of AP Pettarani Elevated Toll Road
WIKA Beton Creates a Greener Infrastructure Project with 7 Types of Trees
Do you know, WIKA Beton is developing the first flyover tollroad on Eastern Indonesia? The project is progressing in Makassar, South Sulawesi. In the midst of the project activities, the company took a moment for a green open space project.
The A.P.Pettarani flyover tollroad has been started since April 2018 and it’s projected to finish on the year 2020. In line with the development, the company worked together with PT Margautama Nusantara (MUN) to create a green open space. The greenery project is part of WIKA Beton’s commitment to their 3P (People, Profit, Planet) principle.
The green open space is executed under WIKA Beton’s CSR program, in which no less than 5.060 seeds of canopy trees are planted. They’re consisted of some well-known species, such as: Ketapang Kencana, Tabebuiya Pink, Tabebuiya Kuning, Pulai, Karet Kuning, Pelangi and Lamtoro Gung. The presence of this area has made the air cooler. The number also represents the amount of trees that’s previously cut down during the project.
The green open space is located in front of Tallasa City Gate (BTP Entrance), Jl. Perintis Kemerdekaan, Makassar. The event was attended by both CEO of PT BMN and PT WIKA Beton, and also the Mayor of Makassar.
The A.P.Pettarani flyover tollroad is quite anticipated by the people of Makassar, as it’s seen as the solution of traffic congestion in the city, to build a better connectivity in Eastern Indonesia. The project will be the trademark of Makassar, as it is the first tollroad in the city which stretches to 4,4 km.
