Traffic Congestion Haunts 2018 Asian Games Preparation

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno is optimistic that the preparation for the 2018 Asian Games will be completed according to its intended schedule.

However, Jakarta’s notorious traffic congestion is still a problem for the Asian Games participants. “We’ll think about how to manage it, we will anticipate it,” said Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno in the 2018 Asian Games meeting at the Gelora Bung Karno on Sunday, November 12.

Jakarta’s Head of the Transportation Department Andri Yansyah said revealed that the government has prepared Rp11.9 billion to battle traffic congestion during Asia’s sporting festivity.

Andri said that despite the close distance between the athlete’s apartment and the Asian Games venue. They would still be late is there traffic congestion forms on their route. “Their journey is set to be within 34 minutes,” said Andri.

Based on the test done to simulate the athlete’s travel time, the government managed to cover the route in 38 minutes to reach the destination. “We tested it without coordinating with toll-road management. It may be 34 minutes after we do,” said Andri.

The Transportation Agency will mobilize 1,300 personnel specifically to manage transportation for the 2018 Asian Games.
