Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia on Eid Return Flow, at the Great Building (Gedung Agung), Yogyakarta Presidential Palace, May 3, 2022
Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh,
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,
After celebrating Eid al-Fitr in our hometowns, we will return to our domiciles to get back to work or to do other activities. I would like to remind you all that the Government has predicted that the peak for the return flow would fall on May, 6, 7, and 8, 2022.
In order to avoid congestion during the return leg and to ensure comfort during the trip, I call on you, ladies and gentlemen, and those who will travel using private vehicles to depart earlier before the peak or late after the peak of return leg, on condition that you have received permit from the office.
Once again, the Government will always strive to do the utmost for the public, including by adopting traffic management during the return leg to reduce density. Odd-even license plate policy, one-way policy, and ban of truck from entering toll roads will be imposed. All measures are taken to ensure the comfort of the people.
That concludes my statement.
I thank you.
Wassalamu’alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
