The Central Jakarta Transportation Agency plans to implement a traffic diversion policy along Jl. Matraman Raya and Jl. Salemba Raya in Central Jakarta because of an underpass project, which has persistently caused severe traffic congestion.

The traffic diversion trial will be applied on Thursday.

“The decision to divert traffic is to reduce congestion and buildup approaching the traffic lights in Matraman area, which has been caused by underpass construction,” said the agency’s head Harlem Simanjuntak on Monday, as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com

He said that one-way traffic would be applied along Jl. Salemba Raya in the direction toward Jl. Matraman Raya. Those intending to go to Jl. Pramuka from Jl. Salemba Raya will not be affected by the diversion plan.

Motorists intending to reach Jl. Salemba Raya from Jl. Matraman Raya must turn left onto Jl. Pramuka Sari II, proceed to Jl. Proklamasi and turn right onto Jl. Diponegoro, before finally turning left to reach the desired road.  

Those traveling from Jl. Diponegoro must not cross over to Jl. Salemba Raya in front of St. Carolus Hospital as usual, but can turn right directly onto Jl. Salemba Raya during the implementation of the one-way traffic policy.

Meanwhile, motorists passing over the flyover from Pulo Gadung to Jl. Pramuka Sari II will not be able to pass over the flyover leading to Jl. Salemba Raya, but should take the route leading to Jl. Proklamasi. (wnd)
