REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, BANDUNG -- Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi requested management or special arrangements for bottlenecks in the existing toll road in Java West and the rest area in it in this 2024 homecoming season.

Because, on the toll road along West Java, there are now many meeting points, and rest areas that often become congestion points, he said in Bandung, Sunday (31/3/2024). “As in Cipali it will remain two lines, and the Cisumdawu line is operated, so in KM 125 it is contracting, so it needs special management. Then also the rest area needs more persuasive activities to smooth the flow,” he said.

Regarding the management plan in the rest area, Budi revealed that Polda Jabar will reduce the Polwan lineup as a persuasive step to smooth the flow of vehicles. “It's a creative move by taking Polwan down, which is a good persuasive move and I appreciate that,” he said.

In addition, he continued, there must also be proper handling and policy towards the spill market with its delmans operating there so that the delman drivers do not lose sustenance. “It's like giving CSR because we shouldn't deprive them of sustenance. No less important is the trajectory of the plot, which must be well regulated,” he said.

Meanwhile, Head of Traffic Police Aan Suhanan said the police had mapped the points to watch out for during the 2024 homecoming season such as at KM 152 of Cipali toll road which is the confluence with the Cisumdawu toll road.

“Then at KM 48 the confluence of the MBZ overpass and the Cikampek toll road which is below. Next on KM 87 which will also be a bottleneck. Then the rest area. This is still a potential slowdown. The Jabar Police has mapped out and prepared the way to act,” he said.

The measures that will be carried out by the police, continued Aan, ranging from contraflow, one way, to deploying an analysis team both from Korlantas in the form of operational vehicles and Polwan personnel from the Jabar Police. “This is in the hope that in time we can be more obedient. Drivers should not stop for too long on roads that are sources of congestion and in rest areas,” he said.

According to Aan, he also anticipates the start of the implementation of the functional toll Cimanggis-Cibitung that will be coordinated with Jasa Marga to determine the parameters of the number of vehicles that can pass at each hour, so that it can be controlled.

In addition, Aan said, attention will also be paid to arterial roads in both the North and South of Jabar, such as in Gentong, Limbangan up to Tasikmalaya, as well as spillway markets and intersections on the Northern line.

“This has been quite heavy management by Jabar, but several schemes have been prepared that will be implemented starting from flow diversion, temporary closure at peak flow, then there is also a contra flow and one way cut off and other management has been prepared,” he said.

It is estimated that the 1445 Hijri Eid al-Fitr Day falls on 10 and 11 April 2024. The Ministry of Transport estimates that the movement of people by the time of the 2024 expansion will reach 193 million people. The number is up significantly compared to 2023 by 123 million people in various regions of Indonesia.
