Local news wires, including Tempo and Bisnis.Com are reporting that the Ministry of Transportation has issued Circular Letter of Director General of Land Transportation No. 3/2022, which deals with traffic arrangements during the holding of the Bali G20 Summit.

Cucu Mulyana, Director of Road Traffic of the Directorate General of Land Transportation of the Ministry of Transportation, explained that there were two types of traffic arrangements during the implementation of the G20 Bali Summit, namely the odd-even plate number scheme implementation and restrictions on goods transportation operations.

Prior to implementing the policy, he had also conducted a survey ahead of time, starting from the implementation of the survey to the issuance of a circular letter, with the survey the traffic performance in Bali has begun to grow in tourism so that many roads are congested, crowded, but still running out smoothly.

The odd-even plate policy refers to the last digit of number plates; if the last digit is odd and the day is classified as an odd date you can drive on the specified roads at specified times. If it’s an even last number you can only drive your vehicle on the roads when the day’s date is an even number.

Traffic regulations through the implementation of the odd-even system and operational restrictions on goods transportation will be implemented simultaneously starting on November 11, 2022 – November 17, 2022, starting at 06:00 WITA (Central Indonesia Time) until 22:00 WITA.

“Because we pay attention to tourism in Bali, which is starting to grow, so that traffic arrangements in addition to paying attention to the smooth and orderly implementation of the Summit also want to maintain the growing economy in Bali,” he added.

This traffic regulation does not apply to a number of vehicles such as vehicles belonging to the leadership of state institutions of the Republic of Indonesia, ministers and leaders of non-ministerial government institutions, leaders and officials of foreign countries, official vehicles with red plates or TNI (Indonesian Military Force) /POLRI (Indonesian Police Force) service numbers, fire engines, ambulances, transportation public with yellow plates, G20 Summit vehicles, electric motorized vehicles, vehicles for persons with disabilities, tow trucks, and vehicles for certain purposes.

“If there is discretion or exceptions in the event of a disaster or riot, this is something we must prepare for.
