“The implementation of Contraflow begins at 09.23 WIB, to anticipate traffic jams at the beginning of the long holiday weekend,” said Muhammad Taufik Akbar, General Manager Representative Office 1 Jasamarga Transjawa Tollroad Regional Division, in a written statement (14/5/2022).
In addition, to unravel the impact of traffic congestion at the off ramp meeting of the Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed (MBZ) Toll Road and the existing Km 48 Cikampek Toll Road, at the discretion of the Police, the lanes were opened and closed situationally.
Currently, access to the MBZ Toll Flyover, namely from Kalimalang access, JORR E access and access from the Jakarta-Cikampek Toll Road, has been closed since 09.00 WIB.
Several factors in the occurrence of traffic congestion, among others, are due to disturbances experienced by large vehicles and the high volume of traffic on long weekends.
“Jasa Marga appeals to all road users to anticipate trips, ensure vehicles are in top condition, have sufficient electronic money balance,” said Taufik.
“Refuel before starting the trip and bring supplies to avoid crowds or crowds in the rest area. Always be careful when driving, obey the signs and follow the directions of the officers in the field,” he said.
