The Big Six
There are 6 strategic infrastructures that are being built in Jakarta and although that some may finish by early January, there are also many that have to endure the hellish traffic until the end of April 2018. Taking public transportations will seem a much better option to avoid the intense gridlock that could go for hours during the morning and afternoon commute. When the constructions are all finished the six of them are expected to ease traffic coming in and out of the city; fly over Cipinang Lontar, Kuningan Mampang underpass, fly over Bintaro Permai, flyover Pancoran, underpass Matraman and underpass Kartini.In another news we are hearing of Alexis Hotel in North Jakarta closing its doors after a gubernatorial decision to not give permit as the hotel’s group willing to re-negotiate the certificates that they are currently using, from local officials. What are your thoughts on this? We’d like to hear more from you!
