Kota Tua to be Heritage area

The city administration on Tuesday announced its plan to Designate Kota Tua, or Old Town, in West Jakarta as a heritage area.

Jakarta Governor Sutiyoso earlier said Kota Tua boasted unique landmarks and its its rejuvenation would draw tourists to the city.

"It is also on the busway route, so tourists staying (in hotels) on Jl. Thamrin -Jl. Sudirman can go there by using the busway," he said.

As part of the rejuvenation of Kota Tua, a pedestrian area has been under construction since last year on Jl. Pintu Besar Utara in Central Jakarta.

Vehicles entering the pedestrian area must not exceed the 30 kilometers per hour speed limit.

The project also includes the restoration of areas along the Besar River and the reconstruction of the Amsterdam Gate replica , which is near the puppet and Bahari museums.
