Agus Wijaya, Dominikus Rato, Jayus ., Aries Harianto


The management of type B/C road transportation passenger terminal and operation/closure of weighing equipment permanently by the central government after the enactment of Act Number 23 of 2014 on Local Government is not in accordance with the principle of regional autonomy.  Regarding the Provincial and district governments, according to the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia, it is stipulated that regional governments regulate and administer government affairs themselves according to the principles of autonomy and co-administration. The division of government authority for the management of the type B/C road transportation passenger terminal has been shared by the central government to local governments.  Handover of personnel, funding, facilities and infrastructure, as well as documents due to the division of Government affairs between the central, provincial and regional governments, there found regions that have not carried out the handover of government affairs as regulated by the Act Number 23 of 2014, for there are road transportation passenger terminals that the status are downgraded. As for the operation and closure of the weighing equipment permanently, namely weigh bridges, several weighing devices are still available and have not functioned regularly by the central government, especially in East Java Province. Thus this case creates legal uncertainty on the implementation of government affairs and causes society disobedience ontransportation order and smoothness as a means for a city/regency  for the progress and development of infrastructure. Moreover, transportation can increase the accessibility of relations among one region and another.
