Hitting the Pavement

OCTOBER 12, 2019

The Jakarta provincial government is currently improving sidewalks and establishing pedestrian-friendly zones along Jalan Prof. Dr. Satrio in Kuningan.

It has tasked regional work unit Dinas Bina Marga to rebuild and widen sidewalks from the exit of the Casablanca tunnel to the Karet overpass, which connects Jalan Prof. Dr. Satrio with the Tanah Abang area. 

Sidewalks will be widened from about a meter currently to 3 meters, with the addition of tactile paving for visually impaired pedestrians. Green open spaces will complement the wider sidewalks. The project is scheduled for completion within the next two months.
