The Jakarta Transportation Agency will divert traffic on Jl. Sudirman as the city administration revitalizes the Polda Metro Jaya footbridge in Senayan, Central Jakarta.

“The city will dismantle the bridge and replace it with a new one,” said the agency’s acting head, Sigit Wijatmoko, recently as quoted by kompas.com.

The project is divided into two parts: east and west side of Jl. Sudirman. The bridge will be dismantled on Dec. 2, at 11 p.m., while the work is expected to be completed at 4:30 a.m. the next day. 

The east side portion will be constructed on Dec. 6, at 11 p.m., while the west side part will be installed on Dec. 7, during the same hour.

While the project is ongoing, vehicles coming from the west, north or east headed toward Blok M are suggested to turn at Jl. Gatot Subroto and go through SCBD or Jl. Gerbang Pemuda.

On the west side, vehicles from Blok M or the south, headed toward Harmoni (north) or Slipi (west) are suggested to take Jl. Pintu Gelora 1 – Jl. Asia Afrika – Jl. Gerbang Pemuda – Jl. Gatot Subroto – Semanggi –Jl. Sudirman.

The bridge revitalization project, Sigit added, is being carried out by PT APIK, which takes full responsibility for the safety of road users throughout the project.

“I call on road users to avoid the roads and follow the traffic diversion,” Sigit said. (vla)
