The Jakarta Transportation Agency shortened on Tuesday the route impacted by the odd-even license plate policy in Pondok Indah, South Jakarta. The decision was made based on an impact assessment of the recently extended traffic policy. 

"The 6.69-kilometer route in Pondok Indah has been shortened to 3.85-km following an assessment," said the transportation agency’s deputy chief, Sigit Wijatmoko, as quoted by kompas.com on Tuesday. 

The route, which initially began at the intersection of Jl RA Kartini–Metro Pondok Indah traffic circle–and intersections in Pondok Indah–Bungur–Gandaria City–Kebayoran Lama, is now limited to the Pondok Indah intersection. 

"We decided to focus the odd-even policy on the main route in Metro Pondok Indah," he said. 

Meanwhile, the agency may also shorten the route impacted by the traffic policy on Jl. Benyamin Sueb, Central Jakarta. The route, which initially started from the Gempol intersection to Kemayoran tollgate, may be shortened from the intersection of  Jl Angkasa to Kemayoran tollgate.

The extended odd-even trial commenced on July 2 and will last until July 31, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, in anticipation of this year's Asian Games. The traffic policy will officially take effect on Aug. 1.  (rfa/iwa)
