State-owned toll operator PT Jasa Marga has recorded a total of 763,864 vehicles leaving Jakarta via Soekarno-Hatta Airport as of D-1 of Eid al-Fitr 1443 Hijriah this year.
“From D-10 to D-1 of Eid Al-Fitr in the period from April 22–May 1, 2022, Jasamarga Metropolitan Tollroad recorded a total of 763,864 vehicles leaving Jakarta for Soetta Airport (Soekarno-Hatta Airport), an increase of 5.49 percent compared to traffic volume during the new normal transactions (November 2021), namely 724,138 transaction vehicles,” Head of the Marketing and Communication Department of Jasamarga Metropolitan Tollroad Irra Susiyanti informed in a written statement here on Monday.
The traffic was distributed between two toll gates (GTs). The first was GT Cengkareng on Prof. Dr. Ir. Soedijatmo street, which recorded a traffic volume of 603,061 vehicles, a 6.36-percent increase compared to the new normal traffic of 566,989 vehicles.
The second was GT Benda Utama 2 Kunciran-Cengkareng Toll Road, which recorded 160,803 vehicles, or a 2.33-percent increase in transaction traffic volume compared to the new normal transaction traffic volume of 157,149 vehicles.
According to Jasamarga Metropolitan Tollroad, as many as 321,459 vehicles exited Bandung to go to Rancaekek, Garut, and surrounding areas through the Cileunyi Toll Gate. The transaction traffic volume showed an increase of 9.18 percent compared to the new normal traffic of 294,443 vehicles.
The volume of transaction traffic from the opposite direction, or to Bandung via GT Cileunyi, was recorded at 272,112 vehicles, a decline of 3.08 percent compared to the new normal traffic of 280,753 vehicles.
Jasa Marga urged people to prepare before traveling by checking the condition of their vehicle, the driver, the fuel and e-toll balance, as well as traffic engineering schedules, and following the directions issued by officers on the field.
Jasa Marga also asked toll road users to use the same e-toll for payments on toll roads with a closed transaction system, such as at the Cipularang and Padaleunyi toll roads and the JORR II Toll Road. Thus, only one e-toll would need to be used for transactions at the entrance and exit toll gates.
