Para Games travel time reachable on weekends: Official
The Jakarta Post
The travel time between Asian Para Games venues and the athletes village in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, will still reach the targeted duration despite the extended odd-even license plate traffic policy being only enacted on weekdays, according to an official.
“[The travel time] can still be less than 30 minutes,” Jakarta Transportation Agency head Andri Yansyah said.
Andri added that the travel time during the Para Games, which will be held from Oct. 6 to 13, would reach the target because there would be a fewer events and athletes than the Asian Games.
The Jakarta administration decided on Friday to extend the odd-even traffic policy until the end of the Para Games.
The policy states that cars with license plates ending in an odd number are only allowed to travel in certain zones on odd-numbered dates and vice versa, from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday to Friday.
The policy will continue on Jl. Medan Merdeka Barat, Jl. Sudirman, Jl. MH Thamrin, Jl. Sisingamangaraja, Jl. Gatot Subroto, Jl. S Parman, Jl. MT Haryono, Jl. HR Rasuna Said, as well as Jl. DI Pandjaitan, Jl. Ahmad Yani and Jl. Kartini.
On Jl. Benyamin Sueb, the policy is to be reapplied on Oct. 1 through to the end of the Para Games on Oct. 13. (ami)
