It Tolls for Thee

Construction Underway for Baliís First Toll Road Connecting Benoa and Nusa Dua Ė Hereís the Map.


(12/22/2011)

Bali’s first toll road connecting Benoa and Nusa Dua commenced construction on Wednesday, December 21, 2011.

The elevated toll way will have a total length of 8.12 kilometers, not including a 1.58 kilometers access road to the airport and a 2.2 kilometers access road at the Benoa port.

The elevated roadway will be built on pylons suspending the highway over a protected mangrove forest. The road will have 2 main lanes traveling in each direction for a total of four lanes, plus two special ancillary lanes dedicated exclusively for motorcycle traffic.

Designers are building a road that will allow speeds of Rp. 80 kilometers per hours meaning that, in principle, cars can travel the distance from Benoa to Nusa Dua in 6.1 minutes, a mere fraction of the travel time required on the existing road systems.

As shown on the accompanying map on Balidiscovery.com, the road features a special connecting access to Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport. This will markedly shorten the traveling time to the airport from either Nusa Dua or Sanur by allowing travelers to bypass the Simpang Siur intersection or the busy Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai connecting the airport and Nusa Dua.

The project – dubbed the Waterway Suspended Toll Way (Jalan Toll Diatas Perairan – JTDP) – is scheduled for completion in 14 months.

On the same day that Bali marked the commencement of construction of the new JTDP, ground was also broken for the Simpang Siur Underpass project in Kuta.

The JDTP project is owned by a conglomeration of State-owned enterprises including:
  • PT Jasa Marga (Persero)
  • PT Pelindo III
  • PT Angkasa Pura I
  • PT Pengembangan Pariwisata Bali (BTDC) Nusa Dua.
  • PT Wijaya Karya (Persero)
  • PT Adhi Karya (Persero)
  • PT Hutama Karya (Persero).
