The Glonggong River Overflow Forced PT JNK to Immediately Perform Traffic Engineerings on Madiun Interchange 

Madiun (3/7) - Heavy rain constantly poured down, causing the rise of Glonggong River water level at Madiun Interchange of Ngawi-Kertosono Toll Road km 604+000, on Wednesday (03/06) at 6 p.m.

At 7 p.m on Wednesday (03/06), the water level rose 50 cm high, which was beyond the reflector limit (guide post), forcing PT Jasamarga Ngawi Kertosono (PT JNK)Jasa Marga's subsidiary Ngawi Kertosono Toll Road operator, to  perform a number of traffic engineerings. One of them, diverting Class I Vehicles from entering the flooded areas.

The water level continues to rise, disconnecting the Ngawi- Kertosono Toll Road access since Thursday (03/07) at 12.50 a.m. PT JNK immediately diverts vehicles, which were coming from Surabaya towards Jakarta, to exit Caruban Toll Gate towards the arterial road and to re-enter the toll road through Madiun Toll Gate.  Meanwhile, vehicles from Jakarta to Surabaya were less likely to drive towards flooded regions.

At 2 p.m on Thursday (03/07), it was informed that, despite the declining water level, it remained on the 70-cm level. PT JNK thus coordinated with the police to maintain the km 607+800 and km 601+900​ traffic engineering. Contraflow trafic engineering has also been performed since 1.15 p.m.

The constant heavy rain on Madiun and surrounding regions overflowed the watershed around the toll road regions.  In the future, PT JNK will coordinate with the local government to work on the issue and prevent the same incident from reoccuring. 

PT JNK apologizes for the inconvenience and advises travelers to be vigilant and comply with the officer's instructions and abide by the traffic signs along the toll road.
