Street Vendors Surveillance in Kota Tua Continues to Be Tightened

The Kota Tua (Old City) Tourism area, which is also known as Batavia Lama in West Jakarta is now even more interesting to visit. This is evidenced by the continued increase in tourist visits, both domestic and foreign.

Alhamdulillah (Thank God), the number of tourist visits is currently rocketing

West Jakarta Mayor, Yani Wahyu Purwoko said the surveillance that has been held a few weeks ago has now paid off.

"Alhamdulillah (Thank God), the number of tourist visits is currently rocketing after monitoring by joint officers. Residents feel safe and comfortable when visiting Kota Tua tourist site," he expressed, Wednesday (1/25).

Satpol PP Guards Kota Tua Area Against Street Vendors

His party will continue to strengthen surveillance in order to prevent street vendors (PKL).

"We must manage vendors who sell in the places that have been provided, namely the Kota Intan coached location (Lokbin) which can accommodate 458 vendors," he explained.

Even, the West Jakarta PPKUKM Sub-agency was also asked to continuously improve the supporting facilities at Kota Intan Lokbin, thus vendors feel comfortable trading in the locations.

"We have heard their aspirations in Kota Intan Lokbin who complained about several problems including access to clean water. Surely, it will be followed up soon," he stressed.

He also dismissed the distance between Kota Intan Lokbin and Plaza Fatahilah Museum, which is about 70 to 100 meters, deemed to be far away.

"We have also made road facilities for visitors from Jalan Teh to Cafe Batavia, which is in the Plaza Fatahilah Museum area," he explained.

He went on to say that the West Jakarta administration would also complete other facilities including directions for tourists to Kota Intan Lokbin and public toilets.

"These facilities will be provided as soon as possible," he furthered.

Kota Tua Technical Unit Head, Dedy Tarmizi added the number of tourists continued to increase, especially on weekends and national holidays after carrying out integrated surveillance.

"The number of tourists visiting Kota Tua on weekends is around 20,000 to 25,000 and on national holidays it can reach 30,000. They are more comfortable after no more vendors are hanging around Plaza Museum Fatahillah," he added.
