Characteristics of Traffic in a Highly Congested Motorway in Urban Area in Jakarta-Indonesia

Fergyanto E. Gunawan

Abstract—In the city of Jakarta in Indonesia, the traffic jam occurs almost every day on various locations across the city. The city that surrounded by some satellite cities, by itself, has about 10 million populations, but the greater Jakarta has more than 20 million populations in total. A large number of people commute in and out Jakarta every day and it leads to a severe traffic jam. Therefore, the Indonesia government has set the problem as an urgent and important national research topic. It is clear that optimizing the existing motorways in Jakarta is one of the possible solutions because building new motorways are prohibited by the dense Jakarta population. Within this conviction, we are developing a framework where the Jakarta traffic can be studied comprehensively within a reasonable cost. Unfortunately, the existing framework on the basis of the micro simulation cannot be directly used for the Jakarta traffic conditions. In this paper, we present the unique feature of the Jakarta traffic, and evaluate the existing car-following models that suitable for the Jakarta traffic.

Index Terms—Micro simulation, GHR model, optimal velocity model, IDM model, fundamental diagram
