News agency Among reported, motorcyclists still use the fast lane to get to the Senayan Statue or Blok M.
Motorbikes, which are usually required to pass from 06.00 to 22.00 WIB at Kolong Semanggi, are now freed to use the fast lane from Sudirman to Blok M or vice versa.
Transportation Agency and Police officers guarding the location direct motorbikes and four-wheeled riders to cross the fast lane by taking the right side of the road.
“Because there are still puddles, vehicles are freed to enter the fast lane,” said an official from the DKI Jakarta Transportation Agency who was met at the location.
At that location, there were 10 tank trucks from the DKI Jakarta Environmental Agency that sucked the water that had flooded the road. The tanker trucks lined the road suction water to reduce the water inundating the roads.
The puddle also made four-wheeled vehicles stand in line to cross Jalan Sudirman from the HI Roundabout to Semanggi.
Meanwhile, Jalan Sudirman from Blok M towards the HI Roundabout has no puddles, vehicles are passing smoothly.
It’s just that water is still overflowing from the sewers in Sudirman, flowing quite swiftly into Jalan Bendungan Hilir (Bnehil). Jalan Benhil is still closed to vehicles.
