Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has issued an updated decree on the odd-even license plate policy to ease traffic during the upcoming 2018 Asian Para Games, which will be in effect from Oct. 3 through Oct. 13.
Unlike the odd-even traffic policy that was applied daily during the 2018 Asian Games, the updated policy only applies from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Monday to Friday during the 2018 Asian Para Games.
Jl. Benyamin Sueb in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, resumes unrestricted operations from Sep. 3, but the odd-even policy is to be reapplied on Oct. 1 through the end of the Asian Para Games on Oct. 13.
“The odd-even policy will be needed again, because the Athletes Village is there [in Kemayoran]” Anies said recently, as quoted by tempo.co.
Meanwhile, the city has permanently lifted the policy on Jl. Metro Pondok Indah in South Jakarta, which was the major road to the Asian Games' golf venue in Pondok Indah. (vla/dmr)
