The road to the agricultural tourist object that is preserved by traditional irrigation organization in Bali or called ‘subak’ in Jatiluwih, Penebel District, Tabanan Regency, is badly damaged.

Meanwhile, the Senganan-jatiluwih roadwork is still in the process of proposal to the central government through APBN of 2013.

“However, until the second semester of 2013, there are no signs that it will be done. We hope that next year the fund could be disbursed so the road condition could be improved,” he said.
