The Jakarta Post
Although the 18th Asian Games has ended, the Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) sports complex in Central Jakarta, remains closed to the public while the building is cleared of equipment and other materials from the quadrennial multisport event.
GBK management spokesperson Dyah Kumala Sari told kompas.com that the complex was only open to access by event crews and workers, or those who had made a prior appointment.
“[Local] Residents can jog around the outside of the GBK,” she said.
Separately, GBK president director Winarto said the Go-Food Festival, a culinary event held by Go-Jek ride-hailing company, would resume this week.
“Go-Jek and the GBK have an agreement to hold the Go-Food Festival for a year until April or May 2019,” he said.
The Go-Food Festival was temporarily closed during the 2018 Asian Games, which was sponsored in part by its competitor, Grab. (cal)
