Colorful road separators in Pasar Rebo, East Jakarta, were repainted black and white on Monday to adhere to “generally accepted” traffic regulations.

"There are certain rules on road marks and I was informed yesterday that they should be respected as they serve a function [for] safety," Governor Anies Baswedan told reporters on Tuesday, adding that he had received the input from Yusmada Faisal, his assistant for development and the environment.

Road separators near Taman Mini Indonesia (TMII) recreational park in Pasar Rebo received a colorful makeover as part of the city’s clean-up campaign to welcome the Asian Games. However, they were repainted black and white on Monday.

Yusmada said black and white were "universally standardized" road markings.

"Jakarta doesn't have specific rules on the color of [road markings], but it is generally accepted that they should be black and white," he said as quoted by kompas.com, adding that he had urged Anies to issue a regulation that would clarify the matter. (fac)
