KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. Jasa Marga, the state-owned toll road operator, counted 167,000 motor vehicles passing through its Cikampek-Jakarta stretch of a key toll road on Sunday, the last day of the weeklong Idul Fitri holiday period.
The company said in a statement released on Monday that that figure marked the highest traffic volume recorded “in Indonesian toll road history”.
The traffic volume on that last holiday was 28 percent higher than the 130,000 cars, buses and trucks recorded on a similar day last year. It was also roughly double the usual 67,000 vehicles passing through the stretch of road each day.
