The Moat – Motongkad District Road in Bolaang Mongondow Timur Regency at Sta 14+000 to Sta 19+000 North Sulawesi Province is one of the access roads from Kotamobagu to Tutuyan as the capital of Boltim Regency. This road section is a strategic district road that is crowded with vehicles during rush hour. Currently, this busy road has a geometric road condition that is not wide (inadequate), so that there is a need for research on the proper function of the road on this segment.
The purpose of this study was to analyze the level of road function worthiness as well as the repairs needed to make the road feasible according to the Road Functional Feasibility Test (ULFJ) based on the Minister of Public Works Regulation number 11 / PRT / M / 2010. Road function worthiness test is the condition of a road segment that fulfills the technical requirements of roadworthiness to provide safety for its users and administrative requirements that provide legal certainty for road operators and road users so that the road can be operated for the public. Law of the Republic of Indonesia No. 22 of 2009 explains that the government is obliged to provide a sense of security and comfort for road users. Road operators must ensure the safety of users and avoid accidents. Safe roads must be carried out through a measurable audit by road administrators both technically and administratively called Road Functionality. Minister of Public Works Regulation No. 11/PRT/M/2010 describes the Procedures for the Road Function Feasibility Test technically and the Road Function Appropriateness Administrative Procedures. The implementation of the Road Function Feasibility Test provides audit results that are very beneficial for road users. Function Feasibility Result (LF) describes the road feasible to operate to road users. The results of the unfit function indicate that the road is not yet feasible to operate, so that the road must be closed for repairs. Road function worthiness is an effort to realize a safe road which is the responsibility of road organizers. The results of the research on the functional feasibility of the Moat – Mongkad road section as a Regency road at Sta 16+000 to Sta 19+000 have the category of Conditional Technical Function Eligibility (LS). Conditional Functional Eligibility (LS) must provide recommendations that need to be made by the government as the organizer of the road network to provide comfort and safety for road users.
