  • TEMPO.CO, JakartaJakarta Transportation Agency said the extended odd-even policy will take effect in streets that are supported by well-integrated transportation in accordance with Article 65(1c) of Government Regulation No. 32/2011 concerning traffic management and engineering.

    The regulation noted that the private vehicle restriction must be imposed on the roads with standardized public transportation network and service. “And also the mobility access which is the governor’s focus has been managed properly,” said the agency head Syafrin Liputo to Tempo, Monday, August 5.

    The agency also considered two other factors as stipulated in the regulation: roads with saturation level above 0.7 and roads with an average speed of vehicles below 30 kilometers per hour during peak hours.

    “These are the criteria as our reference in conducting analysis. So then we map which areas of Jakarta that fit the criteria,” Syafrin added.

    Previously, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan issued Gubernatorial Instruction No. 66/2019 as an effort to control air quality in the capital. One of his orders is appointing Transportation Agency to prepare an extended private vehicle restriction through the license plate number.

    As of date, the agency is still studying the plan along with related parties such as Jakarta Traffic Police.

    Earlier, information about the city’s roads affected by the odd-even policy was circulated in the cyber world. They were Jl. Fatmawati, Jl. Panglima Polim, Jl. Sisingamangaraja, Jl. Pramuka, Jl. Salemba Raya, Jl. Kramat Raya, Jl. Gunung Sahari, Jl. Majapahit, Jl. Gajah Mada, Jl. Hayam Wuruk, Jl. Suryoprayanto, Jl. Balikpapan, and Jl. Tomang Raya. However, it has not been confirmed yet.
