"These personnel are alerted with the completeness of 12 tow cars," said Sigit Wijatmoko, Vice Head of Jakarta Transportation Dept., Saturday (8/25).
He stated that those personnel are assigned to anticipate violations and manage traffic around the Asian Games Marathon track.
"They will focus on keeping every intersection on the road that becomes the Marathon track," he explained.
It is done as a follow-up to the closure of the road that became the path of the Asian Games Marathon, precisely starting from the Senayan Roundabout to intersection of Jalan Mangga Besar.
A number of roads affected by closure are Jalan Jenderal Sudirman, Jalan MH. Thamrin, Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat, Jalan Majapahit, Jalan Gajah Mada, and Jalan Hayam Wuruk.
"They will also help direct drivers to cross alternative routes that have been prepared," he said.
