West Jakarta Transportation Sub-dept. has prepared a plan for arranging the traffic flow in Kota Tua area, Taman Sari, West Jakarta.

" Road condition in Kota Tua area is indeed small and crowded by the passing vehicles, especially motorcycle"

West Jakarta Transportation Sub-dept. Acting Head, Leo Amstrong said it refers to Gubernatorial Regulation No. 34/2014 on Master Plan of Kota Tua Area

According to him, traffic jam in Kota Tua area is triggered by the volume of the passing vehicles is not proportional to the road.

"Road condition in Kota Tua area is indeed small and crowded by the passing vehicles, especially motorcycle. That's why traffic jam cannot be avoided," he expressed, Thursday (3/15).

He uttered the volume of vehicle in the area is increasing, as the motorist from Gajah Mada towards Mangga Besar cannot turn right at the intersection of Jakarta Kota Station.

To anticipate it, there must be flyover construction at Jalan Kunir for motorcycle heading to Mangga Besar.

"If it is realized, traffic jam will be resolved effectively," he stressed.
