Kompol Galih said that overall traffic is expected to be normal with as simple a diversion as possible.

Bogor Mayor Bima Arya together with Bogor City Police Chief Kombes Pol Bismo Teguh Prakoso have conveyed plans to start widening the bridge will take place after the 2023 Eid holiday.

“We hope, because the 1st is a red date, a holiday, we hope that we can do the engineering on the 1st afternoon or the 2nd. The important thing is when there is a new density we will divert it,” said Galih.

He conveyed that currently the Bogor City Police Traffic Unit is still making preparations, such as the red light network which has not yet been completed, including the barriers which will also be ready in the near future.

“When the transfer facilities are ready, we will transfer them. Before that, it is risky to carry out transfers,” he said.

“Definitely (the Batutulis Intersection has traffic congestion). Moreover, we will make Gang Aut a one-way CB, of course even though the one-way CB places very important personnel at that point,” said Galih Apria.
