Bilateral Support/CMCOORD/Transition to Civilian Operation
A joint UNHAS/UNJLC mission, headed by Country Chief, UNJLC Indonesia visited Banda Aceh, Calang and Meulaboh on 6-7 July to brief the User Group and the Military Commanders on UN restrictions on transportation of military personnel on UN aircraft.
A mechanism for CMCoord activity information sharing has been established with UNOCHA of Calang & Meulaboh and UNDSS. Weekly and bi-monthly meetings/dialogues and email update/alerts will form the main communication channels.
Security at Airbase Sultan Iskandamuda Lanut, Banda Aceh has been reinforced with 3 additional security guards (local nationals) as agreed by the Airbase Commander. Relocation of the 2 containers offices situated at the runway ramp took place on 16 July 05 as this had been a safety concern observed by the Airbase Commander.
Luggage checking and inspection by the TNI has been stepped up at Meulaboh Military Airport. Checking and inspection of vehicles and personnel along the western coastal routes by the TNI continues at designated checkpoints. All humanitarian actors moving outside Banda Aceh are advised to strictly adhere to the NO MOVEMENT instruction between 1800hrs and 0600hrs outside the 'green zone' areas.
A UNJLC Sumatra Assessment Team update:
The team is visiting different locations in Sumatra to collect information about logistics capabilities and assess abilities. Logistics related information includes fuel depot locations and capacity, a port database, prices on construction materials, private and port warehouses, main supply routes and an airport database. The detailed reports will be made available once the teams return at end of July 2005.
In the last weeks the UNJLC Sumatra Assessment Team has visited 3 provinces in Sumatra: South Sumatra (06-09 Jul.); Bengkulu Province (10-12 Jul.) and Jambi Province (13-15 Jul.) In each province the team has met with local authorities to introduce UNJLC activities, and has visited ports and authorities to collect capacity and point-of-contact data, including:
- Fuel depot and capacity.
- Port and airfield databases.
- Prices for construction materials.
- Private warehouse capacity.
- Main supply routes.
The road network within the capital of Banda Aceh is good. Though repairs have been carried out along the west coastal roads, it has been reported that the conditions of many repaired sections are prone to deteriorate, particularly after heavy rain or sea action. At most times the coastal roads become impassable to most vehicles due to road or bridge damage and sometimes security considerations.
Atlas Logistique Medan continues to make available truck capacity of up to 300ton/week for humanitarian transporters.
IOM maintain the transportation capacity for the weekly convoy from Medan to Banda Aceh and Medan to Meulaboh. Trucks up to 5MT are only passable along Medan - Meulaboh.
