Abstract

The Trans-Sumatera Toll Road (TSTR) is one of Indonesia's mega project infrastructures and is planned to stretch along Northern Sumatera provinces from Aceh to North Sumatera for about 800 km. Currently, the project development is only feasible in particular routes due to high investment costs and limited demand for revenue. This paper will investigate the best alternative route by considering related aspects to improve its viability. The research method used a combination of quantitative and qualitative approaches through desk study and in-depth interviews. This research produced optimum route for the Northern Sumatera area and also revealed dominant sectors for both provinces.
