    Trans Sumatera Toll Road

    Sumatera Island, Indonesia

Project Summary


The Trans Sumatera Toll Road is a 2,770-kilometer tollway being developed by state-owned EPC contractor PT. Hutama Karya (HK) for the Indonesian Government. Extending from the autonomous province of Aceh to Lampung province, this USD 21.4 billion project will trigger development in the seven provinces of Sumatera Island. HK will ultimately operate and maintain the tollway on behalf of the government, which required intelligent data that could be optimally structured for asset lifecycle management.


Technology service provider PT. FKA Global implemented the project’s data management tools, established mobile workflows, and set up a collaboration platform for the owner, contractors, and sub-contractors. A ProjectWise-based centralized data repository allowed stakeholders with role-based privileges to share information from any location. Accurate and timely engineering content management facilitated technical communication, design review, revision control, and asset data handover.


Bentley’s BIM advancements saved project delivery time and costs by enabling the project team to develop more accurate design geometries and establish faster, more transparent communication among stakeholders. The 3D model reviews helped to avoid interferences among disciplines, while the easy conversion of models to shop drawings helped to reduce resource hours and errors. Using ProjectWise to give regulators restricted access to safety review documents made for seamless compliance management and fewer delays.


Combining traditional engineering workflows with innovative 3D modeling technology, OpenRoads, gINT, LEAP, and STAAD.Pro delivered the BIM foundation that spanned from basic design through asset handover by contractors. ProjectWise provided project collaboration and technical data management from engineering and construction through as-built drawing and commissioning. Mobile applications such as OpenRoads Navigator enabled project participants to easily interact with the managed content while in the field.

Project Playbook: OpenRoads, gINT, LEAP, STAAD.Pro, ProjectWise

  • ProjectWise enabled a connected data environment, as well as accurate and timely information sharing and project collaboration.
  • The ability to share large, geographically distributed files reduced the frequency of inter-site meetings, saving travel time and costs.
  • OpenRoads, gINT, LEAP, and STAAD.Pro enabled BIM advancements in detailed design to better enable construction, operation, and maintenance activities.
  • By connecting seven provinces and one autonomous province, the tollway will improve transportation, development, and commerce for Sumatera Islanders.
  • "Bentley technology provides advanced tools and facilities for infrastructure development within Indonesia. Proper infrastructure asset data management will secure the future of life on Sumatera Island."
