New Corridor Line for Jakarta Busway

Get ready for more traffic jam! Yesterday I passed S. Parman street in front of Slipi Jaya Plaza just found that workers were preparing for busway lane construction. It must be a heavy traffic since this main road is very crowded during day. It must be Busway Line 9: Pinang Ranti – Pluit. Can you imagine that is a main path from North to the South East? Although it will cover all the city with busway, but I just can’t imagine how my way is to city if I don’t take toll-road starting from tomorrow.

Note: This page is obsolete. See my latest post about Busway Map in new page here.

So the govenment is building new lines:
Line 8 Lebak Bulus Terminal – Harmoni Central Busway Length: 18 km
Lebak Bulus-Ciputat Raya-TB Simatupang-Pasar Jumat-Metro Pondok Indah-Iskandar Muda-Teuku Nyak Arif-Letjen Supomo-Jl Panjang-Daan Mogot-S Parman-Tomang Raya-Kyai Caringin-Balik Papan-Suryopranoto-Harmoni.

Line 9 Pinang Ranti Terminal – Pluit Length : 15 km
Terminal Pinang Ranti-Pondok Gede Raya-Raya Bogor-Mayjen Sutoyo-Mt Haryono-Jl Gatot Subroto-S Parman-Prof Latumeten-Jembatan Dua-Jembatan Tiga-Pluit

Line 10 Cililitan -Tanjung Priok Terminal Length: 15 km
Terminal Cililitan-Mayjen Sutoyo-DI Panjaitan-Jendral Ahmad Yani-Yos Sudarso-Enggano-Terminal Tanjung Priok.

See my recommendation  and see the new corridor map:

Unable to move past the tragedy, Erica begins prowling the city streets at night to track down the men she holds responsible. Her dark pursuit of justice catches the public’s attention, and the city is riveted by her anonymous

Expect nothing when watching the movie, and follow the plot generation played by Jodie Foster, then you’ll be amazed that this movie will keep you on the seat till the end of show. Strong point in character’s development, this movie really a must for you guys who love crime-scene movie.

For those who doesn’t use Domino/Notes 8, but want to start to use free Office Productivity Suite, IBM just lauch IBM Lotus Symphony: Document, Presentation, and Spreadsheets.

Richly-featured productivity tools that are intuitive to use and compatible with your files. Provided at no charge for your home, school or business. This is just a new move to compete directly with Microsoft Office, since IBM has many advantages in supporting corporate infrastructure markets. This software has same functionality with those installed with IBM Lotus Notes 8.0. It is based on Open Document Format(ODF) which means very portable to other office suites such as OpenOffice.

You can review and download the software from IBM Site:
