BANDUNG-As much as 98 railways will be guarded by the police, whether they have barrier or not. There are 29 points in the northern route, 8 points in the middle route, and 61 points in the southern route.
"We will guard the railway in order to avoid speeding vehicle given the circumstances of Eid," said the Chief of The Regional Police of West Javam Inspector General Bambang Waskito, during the break fasting event, Tuesday night.
According to him, it is important for the police to watch over the railway in order to maintain traffic safety.
"With the increasing volume of vehicle in the northern, middle, and southern route every ten minutes there will be a train pass by," he said.
Not only railways, the police are also concern with the safety of Cikopo-Palimanan Toll Road. Some accident occured during last year's homecoming event. Thus, this year, the police is trying to reduce the number or even negate the case of an accident.
"We will apply contraflow system on the right lane starting on KM14 until KM61 and it will be guarded by the police," he said. Jo
