Long line of vehicles is queuing to cross to the Sunda Strait to Lampung. Traffic volume has increased significantly compared to the previous year. According to PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry, the number of four-wheeled and two-wheeled vehicles crossing from the ports of Merak and Ciwandan reached 41,000 and 33,956, respectively, carrying a total of 222,000 people.

The surge of traffic has caused traffic jam stretching from the Merak toll gate to Merak Harbor with passengers having to wait for hours to make the crossing. One of the factors that exacerbates the traffic jam is the demand-supply imbalance which is expected to occur until April 9. Passengers said that they have encountered difficulty getting the ferry tickets.
