Bali to Build More Long Toll Roads


The Bali provincial administration plans to build more toll roads between Denpasar and other district capitals in the tourist island.

Bali already has a long toll bridge extending over the sea coast between the tourist beach area of Nusa Dua and the regency of Badung. Similar projects of flyovers will be built between Denpasar and Gilimanuk in western coast of Bali and between Denpasar and Singarasa in the northern coast, Bali’s deputy Governor I Ketut Sudikerta said on Thursday.

Sudikerta said the project is still in the pipeline, adding the provincial administration is still studying the plan including investment for the mega projects.

Flyovers linking Denpasar and the western and northern parts of the province are getting urgent to cope with the traffic congestion, he said.

The highway between Denpasar and Singaraja in the north has too many bends that it could take four hours to cover the distance especially with the traffic jams, he said. With the flyover the distance could be covered in a much shorter time, he added.

Flyover is the only solution the growing worse traffic jams in the highways and to cut short the distance, he said.
He said construction is expected to start in 2016/2017 and to be completed in one or two years.

Flyover between Denpasar and Gilimanuk via the regencies of Tabanan and Jembrana and between Denpasar and Singaraja via the regencies of Tabanan and Buleleng would help boost economic development in the district areas and all Bali, he said.
