Bisnis, JAKARTA — Although the Transportation Ministry previously estimated that post-holiday peak return traffic would occur on Sunday (14/4/2024) to Monday (15/4/2024), the density of Jakarta-bound vehicles has already surged on several toll roads in Central Java since Friday (12/4/2024) or two days after Eid al-Fitr.

PT Jasa Marga (JSMR) recorded a total of 42,466 vehicles exiting from the Cikampek Utama toll gate towards Jakarta on Friday. Meanwhile, Jasamarga Metropolitan Tollroad Regional Division (JMT) predicts that around 520,000 vehicles will return to Greater Jakarta via Cipularang and Padaleunyi toll roads during the return flow.

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi instructed that ship departure orders (SPB) be issued more quickly when needed to support smoother traffic at ferry crossings. In addition, the minister also requested PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry to create contingency plans to deal with various possible situations to prevent uncurbed queues.

"In essence, [we need] coordination among regulators, operators, and authorities. I think the command is in the hands of the Police chief and Lampung governor. Operators and regulators who are lacking finesse can be given a warning to improve their operational patterns," said Budi in an official statement on Saturday (13/4/2024).
