GJTRAN – On the eve of Lebanon or Eid al-Fitr, Indonesians usually travel to their hometowns.
Meanwhile, people who go home often migrate from the area where they were born to school or work.
Of course, the moment of meeting the big family in their beloved village will be the moment that every traveler has been waiting for. However, as Lebanon’s Day D approaches, congestion and traffic will increase, of course.
Before going this way and that way, it is better to first see the condition of the road that is being traveled. With more advanced technology, you can now view traffic or use services such as Google Maps or CCTV surveillance by the General Directorate of Highways and the Ministry of Transport of the Republic of Indonesia.
How to view traffic when returning home
Via Google Maps
- Access the application Google Maps On mobile
- On the main screen of the application, select Menu Map type Symbolizes a path in a circle on the right
- Select the map type in the field Map type And detailed information on Map details
- Select Assumption To Map type And the traffic To Map details
- Next, the map shows a line the traffic Or the traffic
- When you get home, find the area you want to cross
- You can find out which places are facing traffic
For background, map type includes default, satellite and terrain. By default, it is usually directed to the Terrain type, which only shows an image of area lines and roads on the map.
Also, if you select Terrain, you will see a map that has a picture of a real area on the ground. I myself find it easier to use Terrain or Default when I want to see the road conditions. When the traffic mode appears, you will encounter lines on the road called green, orange, red to dark red.
Green indicates that the road can be crossed slowly. While the orange color indicates that the road is a bit crowded, it is still passable. Because red usually indicates road congestion and dark red indicates line congestion.
In addition to using Google Maps, you can monitor the Lebanese route through toll booths on toll roads and non-toll roads through the official website of the General Directorate of Highways.
Through the monitoring site of the General Directorate of Highways
- Open the browser on your mobile phone or laptop
- Access to the Lebanese route site of the General Directorate of Highways
- On the Home screen, select CCTV side effects Or CCTV without complications
- In the next step, you will be directed to the CCTV camera in different areas
- Determine access to CCTV cameras in the direction to be seen
- Live CCTV videos are also displayed on the site
Through this site, you can see the status of the route taken. You can also combine it by viewing the traffic conditions in the Google Maps app to get the best alternative route so you can easily reach your destination back home.
It should be noted that when you select a non-duty CCTV camera, you are directed to the CCTV monitoring site owned by the Ministry of Transport of the Republic of Indonesia. In this site, you will encounter live CCTV videos from different areas with the categories of North Line, Middle Line, West Line, Terminal and UAV.
We hope this guide can help you enjoy your trip home and avoid traffic so you can meet your extended family directly in your city.
