Jakarta. One lane of the Cikopo–Palimanan Toll Road heading from Cirebon in West Java to Jakarta was temporarily closed on Monday (17/04) following a landslide caused by heavy rain.

The landslide damaged 80 meters of road at the 93-kilometer marker, near Caracas village in Kalijati subdistrict in Subang, West Java.

The guardrail on the roadside was also severely damaged. The landslide occurred in several stages, starting on Friday last week, before peaking early on Monday morning.

Toll road operator Lintas Marga Sedaya has issued no further statements regarding mitigation measures.

Contractors started repairs on Tuesday on the damaged guardrail, but they have yet to receive instructions on further repairs.

Workers have meanwhile covered the affected portion of road to prevent further damage.
