Jakarta Truck Ban

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 05/28/2011 11:29 AM

The Jakarta administration has agreed to rescind its total ban on trucks on Jakarta’s inner-city toll road effective early Saturday.

A partial ban on trucks along the Cawang-Pluit section of the toll road during certain hours will remain in place.

“The traffic police will only ban trucks along the Cawang-Puit section if there is congestion,” Eka Sari Lorena Surbakti, the Organization of Land Transportation Owners (Organda) chair, told The Jakarta Post after meeting with central and local government officials, calling the progress “positive”.

“Trucks going to and from [Tanjung Priok] port have begun operating again. There has been a long queue of trucks there,” she said.

The decision to rescind the ban came after a meeting on Friday between officials from the Transportation Ministry; Public Works Ministry; the administrations of Jakarta, South Tangerang, and Tangerang; the Jakarta Traffic Police, Organda and state port operator Pelabuhan Indonesia, among others.

The officials agreed to meet again. “We will meet again on June 10 to hear the evaluation of the Jakarta administration, Pelindo, Organda and other stakeholders regarding the ban,” she added.

Truck operators lost Rp 12 billion (US$1.4 million) a day due to the ban, according to Organda.
