The proposal was realized. Malioboro shops on the first floor used as pedestrian partially dismantled. "The thinking used to pedestriannya less wide," he said.
Another idea to make the turn into the path of Mangkubumi Malioboro Street now known Kleringan. This idea arose because every train passing in front of the Tugu Station congestion length. The breakthrough idea was very useful. "Well, interesting ideas like that now kok never again," he said.
The idea of closing the Malioboro for motor vehicles, such as WAS Rendra ever made in the 1970s, very interesting but it will bring extraordinary consequences of congestion on the roads around Malioboro.
The idea of closing the Malioboro to overcome the traffic chaos and make the area pedestrian Widihasto thrown back. These ideas are not easily recognized but can be executed. "It takes parking bags. What now there is not sufficient," he said.
