Check Traffic Diversion and Road Closure During ASEAN Summit in Jakarta


ASEAN SUMMIT 2023 - JAKARTA. The ASEAN Summit will be held in Jakarta from Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 September 2023. In anticipation of this event, the Directorate of Traffic (Ditlantas) of the Metro Jaya Regional Police along with the Jakarta Transportation Agency (Dishub) have implemented traffic engineering on several main roads traversed by the ASEAN Summit delegation. 

The residents of Jakarta need to be aware of this traffic engineering so they do not get stuck in traffic on the routes taken by the ASEAN Summit delegation.
 
In addition, there are also several places that should be avoided as they are the locations of the ASEAN Summit. 

So, which roads need to be avoided during the ASEAN Summit?

Quoting from the NTMC Polri page, traffic engineering in the capital city will take place from 2-7 September 2023. There are 29 roads that will have their traffic flow engineered because they are the routes of the ASEAN Summit delegation traveling from their accommodation to the event location. 

"Later, traffic engineering management will be carried out during the ASEAN Summit," said the Head of Jakarta Transportation Agency, Syafrin Liputo at City Hall, Wednesday (30/8/2023).

Principles of traffic engineering Furthermore, Syafrin explained the principles of traffic engineering management during the preparation and during the ASEAN Summit. 

Traffic engineering is carried out when the delegation will go to the event locations. 

When the delegation moves from the accommodation to the event location, road opening and closing will be implemented. 

Road closures, said Syafrin, can last up to two hours. "So, for example, if the delegation will depart at 07.00, then from 06.30 to 08.30 there will be road closures," said Syafrin, quoted from Kompas.id, Tuesday (29/8/2023). 

"We urge the public who are going to travel to avoid six areas and 18 hotels where the delegation is staying, then follow the alternative routes," he continued.
