(7/29/2013)

The Bali traffic police have announced that heavy vehicles and trucks not engaged in the carriage of essential commodities will be banned from operating on the island’s road from August 4 until approximately August 8, 2013,  in order to reduce traffic congestion.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the director of Bali’s traffic police, police commissioner Beno Lauhenapessy said, “We will prohibit trucks from H-4 (four days before Lebaran) until one day after Lebaran. Exceptions will be granted to trucks carrying essential commodities.”

In this instance, essential commodities include trucks loaded with foodstuffs, postal trucks and trucks carrying fuel.

Beno's officers, in cooperation with transportation agency officers, will be stationed at key points acrosss Bali monitoring the flow of people traveling to their home villages and back over the longest holiday period of the year.

Nationwide the Ministry of Transportation had previously announced the large trucks with more than two axels or weighing more than 16 tons will be banned from highways from H-4 until August 8

In anticipation of large traffic volumes, police have prepared expanded parking area at Padang Bai in East Bali and Gilimanuk in West Bali to accommodate vehicles and drivers waiting their turn at the main ferry crossings to Lombok and Java.

Additional ticket booths have also been set up at both locations in anticipation of the coming crush of travelers.
