In Java island, there are 37 callender-hamilton bridges that have to be replaced considering that the service life is more than 40 years.

[The Government] will repair, will revitalize brigdes that require improvements considering that loads on bridges due to transportation and logistics activities continue to increase.
It is our hope that the newly inaugurated bridges can enhance the safety and velocity of people and goods mobility.
