Palembang is the capital city of South Sumatra Province with a population of about 1.8 million people and its territory is divided into two parts by the Musi River. Currently these two parts have only been connected by abridge, the Ampera Bridge, whose traffic is concentrated on the major roads connected by the Ampera Bridge. Congestion occurs almost evenly in all parts of Palembangparticularly at peak hour. Palembang is one of the major cities in Indonesia which have congestion problems. A construction plan of additional bridges has been planned in the past ten years. However, its implementation is delayed mainly due to land acquisition. In the general spatial plan of Palembang in 2012, it was stated that untilthe year 2037 there would have been constructed six bridges, yet the implementation would be delayed due to social issues and land acquisition. This study analysed the traffic conditions of Palembang with or without the construction of a bridge for the medium - term plan that is up to the year 2027, planning to construct four additional bridges. Traffic on the road network of Palembang was modelled using a four - step transport model developed by JICA STRADA program (System for Traffic Demand Analysis) where the ratio of traffic volume of the survey results with modelling results for 2014 produced a coefficient of determination (R2) of 0.839. The results indicate that the constructions of Musi III Bridge in 2022 and Musi VII Bridge in 2027 for the medium term are very needed to deploy traffic movement and significantly reduce the congestion in Palembang. If the constructions of both bridges are delayed, Palembang will suffer from the severe congestion in both 2022 and 2027.
