The Jakarta administration will open a jogging and bicycle track called Jalasena on Pantai Maju (Moving Forward Beach), one of the reclaimed islets off the coast of Jakarta, to the public after July 30.

“Anyone can access the area for exercise or sightseeing,” corporate secretary of city-owned developer PT Jakarta Propertindo (Jakpro) Hani Sumarno said on Friday as reported by tempo.co.

The Jalasena track is 7.6 kilometers long and 3 meters wide. However, only 3.1 km has been completed in the first stage of the construction.

The rest of the track is yet to be developed as the land is not yet solid. 

“The section that has been completed is on land where the density is suitable,” she said.

The Jalasena track runs along the shore and is built atop a sea dike. Jakpro is installing rocks along the shore so the water is not too deep. The current depth of water along the dike is around 8 to 10 m.

In addition to the track there are also public parks.

Moving Forward Beach, previously known as islet D, will also host the celebration for Indonesia’s 74th Independence Day next month. The ceremony will mark the public opening of the man-made islet in addition to Pantai Kita (Our Beach) and Pantai Bersama (Together Beach), previously called islets C and G respectively. (das)
