Previously, Bogor Regent Ade Yasin and Cianjur Regent Herman Suherman urged the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) to immediately build Puncak II Line for long-term handling of traffic congestion on the Puncak Line.

“I think we need another (congestion handling) solution, a solution that we always echo. Today the Regent of Cianjur also really wants to encourage that the solution to Puncak congestion is (construction of) Puncak II,” said Ade Yasin.

According to him, the implementation of traffic engineering in the form of an odd-even system or a one-way system is only a short-term handling of vehicle volume density.

The Puncak II route, which stretches in Batulawang Village, Cipanas District, Cianjur, West Java, is a solution for motorists who are stuck in total traffic jam on the Puncak route, even though most of the alternative road runways are in a heavily damaged condition.

Even on Sunday (27/2/2022), thousands of motorists chose to cross the Puncak II route, so as not to be stuck in long queues for hours on the main route, even though most of the road runways were damaged and slippery because they were buried by the cliffs that are commonly found in the area. along that road.

Even though the road is damaged, it only takes drivers three to four hours to get to the Bogor area, which is faster than being stuck on the Puncak route, so officers direct drivers to choose an alternative route to Puncak II, even though the road is still damaged.

The regent of Cianjur, Herman Suherman, said that his party also hopes that the central government will immediately grant the construction of the Puncak II route because the previous year, the district government had budgeted Rp 6 billion for the construction of the Puncak II road through to the main route to be built by the central government.

“We hope that the construction of Puncak II will soon be realized from the central government budget because it relies on very minimal budgets from local governments. The Puncak II route is the only solution, overcoming the total traffic jam on the Puncak route,” he said.
