Several roads will be opened while others will be closed on Sunday as part of a traffic engineering plan for the 2018 Electric Jakarta Marathon.

The traffic measures will be last from 4 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sunday.

“We won’t close the roads entirely but we will use one section for the runners. The officials will stop vehicles to give priority to the marathon runners. When the runners have passed, then the roads will be opened,” Jakarta Transportation Agency acting head Sigit Wijatmoko sadid on Saturday as reported by kompas.com.

Traffic will be managed on thoroughfares that will be used as routes for the race.

The event is divided into several races, with a 5-kilometer race that starts at Gate 10 of Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Stadium and passes through the Senayan overpass toward Jl. Gatot Subroto and the Jakarta Convention Center before returning again to the starting point.

For the 21km race, the runners start at GBK Stadium, head from Jl. Rasuna Said to Jl. Kuningan Mulia and then pass Jl. Gatot Subroto before returning to the stadium.

n the 42km marathon, runners will pass Jl. Gatot Subroto, Jl. S. Parman, Jl. Tomang, Jl. Gajah Mada, Jl. Stasiun Kota, Jl. Cikini, Jl. Pramuka, Jl. Surabaya, Jl. HOS Cokroaminoto, Jl. Kuningan Mulia toward the Kuningan underpass and Jl. Gatot Subroto before returning to the stadium.

Sigit urged residents to use public transportation to pass the thoroughfares on Sunday.

For those who bring their private vehicles to watch the race, he said his office would provide parking spaces located in the TVRI building, the Youth and Sports Ministry, Mulia Hotel, Senayan City, Plaza Senayan, STC Senayan and Sultan Hotel.
