PT KA warns of unguarded crossings

JAKARTA: State railway company PT KA has issued a public warning, especially for Idul Fitri travelers, around the dangers of unguarded railway crossings throughout the country.

"In Java alone, there are a total of 6,602 railway crossings which have no guard posts," PT KA spokesman Noor Hamidi told detik.com. Friday

"Some 6,354 crossings are official and the remaining 248 are unofficial -- they have been made by other people and not us."

He said 158 crossings in Java were prone to traffic accidents including 14 crossings in Jakarta, four in Bandung, West Java; four in Semarang, Central Java; and East Java's Madiun, Surabaya and Jember with 14, 57 and 11 crossings each. -- JP
