This 5 km of street corridor beautification Project is located at Jalan Jend. Sudirman and Gatot Subroto, a prime CBD area in the heart of Jakarta and adjacent to various important historical sites including the Semanggi Bridge and the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium. The Project is part of the Capital City`s beautification to support the largest multi sport event in Asia, the Asian Games 2018. The intention behind the Project is to create a new concept for a streetscape corridor, which is integrated with the MRT system and the surrounding urban landscape. It is also intended as a place to facilitate various public activities.
The concept for the street corridor incorporates line expressions with cultural ribbons, which represent the continuity of the traditional Betawi pattern along the pedestrian and bycicle lanes. Pedestrians can walk through a safe and comfortable urban environment, where they can also experience diverse public performances and various thematic cultural and education spots, whilst enjoying their stroll under new colourful planted trees along the green belt. Seating areas and bicycle racks are provided along the corridor to support better mobility for the public.
The pedestrian pathway showcases simple and elegant street furniture, and is equipped with a smart system to complement the World`s quality urban corridors, as well as to support a new urban lifestyle, where pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles can exist in harmony with each other.
