Citizens living in RW 03, Cengkareng Timur, Cengkareng, West Jakarta, are requesting related units to repair Jalan Bangun Nusa. They admitted the rainwater often inundates road as high as 60 centimeters during rainy season.
" Jalan Bangun Raya is really prone to floods, especially in rainy season. It has been ongoing since five years"
As quoted by beritajakarta.com, the inundation could reach 50 meters long. It is worsened with an elevation project along Jalan Daan Mogot KM 23. "Jalan Bangun Raya is really prone to floods, especially in rainy season. It has been ongoing since five years," told Deden (42), a motorcycle taxi driver, Thursday (1/29).
He explains, such condition is very annoying. If the water level reaches 60 centimeters, the riders not dare pass the road. Yet its existence is vital to people activities, which is an access to Jalan Daan Mogot.
Muhammad Nazib, Head of West Jakarta Bina Marga Sub-Department stressed his sub-department intends to repair and elevate the road this year. "We also have established cooperation with the Water Management Public Works Sub-Department," he disclosed.
