Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

According to a survey from Ministry of Transportation, there will be 23 million private cars and 17 million motorcycles that will be used by travelers. This is a very large number and it is expected that there will be severe traffic jams. Therefore, I ask the people to avoid the peak of mudik season on April 28, 29, and 30, 2022.

To anticipate such occurrence, The Government has prepared traffic engineering that includes odd-even policy, one-way traffic, and ban on trucks for entering toll roads. Therefore, I invite you to depart earlier, surely by adjusting the holiday schedule from your office.

That concludes my statement. Please do not forget to keep following health protocols, especially wearing a face mask, washing hands, and maintaining a safe distance.

I thank you.

Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
