Aceh - Major Projects

Name Year Notes
Aceh Highway Plan 2038 A project to build a set of highways in the country to better connect the different regions and cities, and with a secondary objective of helping tourists to easily reach the beautiful places away from the big cities, either by car or by bus tours.
TravelAceh2040 2040 "TravelAceh2040" was an advertising campaign carried out by the country's government to promote tourism in Aceh, be it rural, beach, mountainous or city, and to promote the safety, modernity and simplicity of the country's airports. The airport capacity in the country was recently expanded with the construction of new airports and the renovation of others.
Aceh High Speed Rail (KCA) 2040 -----
Banda Aceh - Bulohan Bay International Airport 2052 This international airport is located on an artificial island in the middle of Bulohan Bay, 22 km northeast of downtown Banda Aceh. It was a project idealized on an artificial island due to the fact of the rapid growth of the city and the noise that an international airport would make in the heart of the city. It was designed to become the main airport of the Acehnese Capital, thus relieving the old main airport, located in the middle of the city, having caused numerous protests near the terminal.
R5 Highway Project 2063 A highway project to connect two isolated regions in the country, through tunnels and viaducts with many stopping / sleeping areas.
Banda Aceh - Sabang Bridge 2077 This bridge was planned to connect the city of Banda Aceh with the island of Pulau We, more specifically the city of Sabang. The bridge is 19.5 km long and is licensed by the B.A. Highway Concession. It was inaugurated on February 3, 2080, with a visit from the President to the beautiful island of Pulau We through the new bridge.
Lhokseumawe City Metro 2081 A project to build a metro system in Lhokseumawe City with different lines and with a plan for future expansions.
Meulaboh New Hospital 2096 -----
