2011 There are 12 million vehicles, Cannot Move in Jakarta!

The Desire of Jakarta residents to purchase motor vehicles is predicted to increase in 2011. According to the Governor of Jakarta, the number of new vehicles that will enter the Greater Jakarta, reached 700 thousand.

Data from the Polda Metro Jaya, this year the number of vehicles on the streets of Jakarta, to reach 11,362,396 units of the vehicle. Consists of 8,244,346 units of two-wheeled vehicles and 3,118,050 units of four-wheeled vehicles.

While in 2011, not less than 12,062,396 vehicles will pack the streets of Jakarta. Almost half of these vehicles are new vehicles.

This figure has not been added to the amount of freight that passes in one stretch that according to data from the Directorate of Traffic (Dirlantas) Polda Metro Jaya as many as 859,692 vehicles.

"It is prepared annually trend number of private vehicles such as motorcycles and cars continued to increase," said Coordinator of TMC (Traffic Management Center) Directorate of Traffic Polda Metro Jaya, Indra Jafar Kompol when contacted, Monday, September 27, 2010.

Obviously this condition increasingly worrying, and certainly in Jakarta traffic jams will get worse. Coupled with growth in the number of road vehicles are not comparable.

The length of roads in Jakarta, only 7650 km and 40.1 km wide roads or 0.26 percent of the area of Jakarta. While the growth of road is only 0.01 percent per year. Not to mention the high number of trips in Jakarta, which reached 20 million per day.

"We ask Pemrpov for the development of public transport continue to be done, and what is out there like the busway continues to be optimized and improved," he said.

His side, continued Indra, also continues to perform steps to reduce congestion, such as the closing segment and closing access to the toll booth entrance mall that assessed the added effect of congestion. "In addition, plans for restrictions on motorcycles in the joints of the main road at rush hour," he added.

However, he thought, one of the efforts to curb the explosion of vehicles required adequate public transport, cheap, safe, and comfortable.

Previously, Head of Department of Transportation (Affair) DKI, Udar Pristono, also has made several attempts to unravel these bottlenecks. One of them through operational restrictions on heavy vehicles for passing on the highway in the city during peak hours such as morning and afternoon.

"Currently we are reviewing restrictions on container trucks to pass in Jakarta. Ideally these heavy vehicles can only pass on toll roads in the city on top at 22:00, where traffic conditions have been deserted," he said.

He claimed to have prepared a letter to PT Bina Marga to request enforcement cooperation to overcome these bottlenecks. "We expect a written request to parse the traffic jams can be granted by the Ministry of Transportation in this case the Directorate General of Land Transportation with the Department of Highways," he explained.

Other steps that have been prepared in order to limit the use of private vehicles, namely through the implementation of Electronic Road Pricing (ERP). Plan withdrawal levy system on this rider will take effect on roads that were previously applied 3 in 1.

The road is along Jalan Sisingamangaraja, General Sudirman, Thamrin, West Freedom, Majapahit, Gajah Mada, Hayam Wuruk, South Great Gate, the Great Northern Door. Indonesia Today
