Transportation infrastructure, interregional linkages, economic growth and JABODETABEK area


Poerwaningsih S. Legowo




    infrastructures serve as one of the preconditions to improve a regions’
    economy. Transportation infrastructure may influence regional economic growth
    as well as the regions surrounding it. The objective of the current study is to
    analyze the influence of these infrastructures towards economic activity growth
    (total units, workers, and sector production) of a region as well as the
    regions surrounding it. Analysis is also conducted towards a number of policies
    of which act as basis for decision making concerning Transportation
    infrastructure development in a region.


    area of study consists of Jakarta, bogor, depok, tangerang
    and bekasi or commonly referred to as JABODETABEK area. Time series data is
    used from the period 1990-2006 and encompassing 4 economic activities including
    trade, transportation, home-construction and industry. Together with the data
    model, estimations are made by using two stages least square (2SLS) prediction
    methods. A simulation model is then
    subsequently used with the SIMNLIN procedure.


    results of the simulation demonstrate that toll infrastructure investment in
    each region generally elevate regional economic growth (PDRB) and its surroundings,
    except for bekasi. Conversaly, road investment policies generally reduce PDRB
    growth in a region. Moreover, the results of the simulation indicate that the
    impacts of toll development increases growth in the home-construction sector in
    almost all regions. Conversely, policies to increase road investment would
    reduce growth in the home construction sector in all regions.
