Indonesia’s government has agreed to pay road companies up to 1,000 million rupiah ($22.6 million) to speed up road construction.
In exchange, the government will guarantee roads be built within the “most efficient” schedule for construction.
Road construction in the Southeast Asian country has been hampered by poor weather and poor road infrastructure.
The country also faces a chronic water shortage, which has contributed to a surge in traffic and pollution.
The agreement is part of an overall budget agreement signed by the country’s prime minister on Wednesday.
It was signed by Prime Minister Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and his deputy, Prabowo Subianto.
The deal is to be finalized by early January.
It requires approval from the Cabinet, the Senate, and the National Assembly.
