PALOPO - The people of Tana Toraja and North Toraja choose to take an alternative route if they want to go to Luwu Raya or vice versa. It has been since the landslide that caused the road body to be cut off at the Toraja-Palopo axis on Friday last week.

Observed on Sunday, June 28, 2020, traffic from Toraja to Luwu Raya was seen to be crowded and congested on the alternative route, Rantepao-Sa’dan-Batusitanduk (Luwu). Many two-wheeled vehicles and four-wheeled vehicles that pass in this lane. "Many four-wheeled and two-wheeled vehicles pass through the Sa'dan-Batusitanduk path," Etta Bagong Nonongan, a North Toraja Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) official, was quoted as saying Kareba Toraja.

He said, because of the many vehicles that passed from Luwu Raya to Toraja and on the contrary made health workers from Poskesde To'Ao, Kelurahan Sa'dan Matallo, in cooperation with North Toraja PMI open a checkpoint and spray disinfectant spray on all passing vehicles.

It is said that a number of users of the alternative road route that are the fastest and quite easy to pass are the Provincial Road that connects the Regency of Luwu with the Regency of North Toraja via Batusitanduk to Sa'dan, North Toraja.

"For motorcycles, it is quite good and fast. As for cars, it still seems rather difficult, especially now that it's the rainy season. Not to mention there are climbs that are quite extreme and loose rock, "explained Etta. However, there were several cars that passed him from the direction of Toraja to Luwu.

To pass this route, which is from the direction of Luwu Raya, you enter through the road in front of Batusitanduk Market, continue to West Walenrang Sub-district office, turn right until you reach To'Ao, Sa'dan Sangkaropi, then to Rantepao. (Ald)
