Road to Tanjung Priok reopens

Jakarta: Intermodal connections to and from Indonesia's main box terminal are set to return to normal shortly. A section of road in North Jakarta leading to Tanjung Priok Port was reopened to the public on Sunday, following extensive repairs after it collapsed in September. ?Djoko Murjanto, director general of the Public Works Ministry's Bina Marga unit, which oversees roads, said the section of Jalan R.E. Martadinata would initially only be open to cars and motorcycles while officials gauge its strength over the next week. ?He added that before it could be reopened to the all-important container traffic headed to Tanjung Priok, there would have to be agreement between all transportation authorities. ?The 103-meter stretch of road collapsed into the Japat River on Sept. 16, disrupting traffic into and out of the port, but not causing any casualties.
