National Police Prepares Traffic Engineering during Christmas Holidays


National Police Chief Police General Listyo Sigit said that his staff had prepared a number of traffic flow management schemes to anticipate traffic jams during the Christmas and New Year (Nataru) holidays. Bearing in mind, there is a potential surge in homecoming travelers during Christmas.

“Regarding engineering, we already have a concept. “We have had experience, especially regarding homecoming routes and return routes in managing homecoming during Eid al-Fitr, so of course we will apply this experience during the Christmas holiday, especially in terms of managing and engineering transportation routes,” said the National Police Chief, quoted from NTMC National Police, Wednesday (20 /12/2023).

According to him, the police have experience in anticipating the flow of Eid homecoming. Therefore, the police will also apply this experience, starting from engineering with contraflow, flow diversion, to one way later when there is congestion to traffic jams at certain points.

“We already have a kind of counting that when the number of vehicles on the toll road exceeds a certain capacity, we will apply engineering. “We will continue to evaluate this so that when we carry out engineering, on the other hand, people who use the road will not be disturbed,” he added.

“So that there is no excessive build-up and even if you have to wait, of course a rest area is prepared which will then also make people feel comfortable while waiting,” he said.

He added that in his party’s calculations, there were also activities to carry out the election stages at the same time as the Christmas holiday. Therefore, his party will also provide security during these political events.

“Implementation of the election stages so that we ask each regional head to carry out mapping in their area so that the election stages can continue to run well,” he explained.
