After nine months of construction, the Skywalk Kebayoran Lama in South Jakarta was inaugurated on Friday, January 27, 2023 by the Acting Governor of DKI Jakarta, Heru Budi Hartono. Connecting two modes of transportation — Transjakarta and the KRL Commuter Line — this skywalk enhances community mobility by facilitating the switching of transportation modes during activities.

Facilities such as 13 surveillance cameras (CCTVs) ensure public safety and make it comfortable for people to use the Skywalk Kebayoran Lama. Want to know what makes this skywalk unique? Check out the article to find out!

Integration of Transportation

 

Integrasi Transportasi

The Skywalk in Kebayoran Lama demonstrates the dedication of the Jakarta Provincial Government to establish a comprehensive public transportation system. The skywalk facilitates the integration of different modes of transportation through the use of Transit Oriented Development (TOD).

The skywalk connects two Transjakarta stops, Velbak in Corridor 13 and Kebayoran Lama in Corridor 8, as well as the Kebayoran Lama KRL Commuter Line station, making mobility easier. There are four registration doors at Kebayoran Lama Station and two access doors at the Velbak bus stop, providing ample entry and exit options.

Three lifts with a capacity of one ton make accessing the 18-meter Velbak Bus Stop easy. The elevators have the capacity to serve 8-10 people, with priority given to high-need passengers such as the disabled, pregnant women, and the elderly. The skywalk not only reduces traffic congestion, but also offers a safe walking option for pedestrians and avoids road hazards.
