(11/17/2013)

Beritabali.com reports that the arrival of Bali’s rainy season is raising concerns surrounding the ability of Bali’s first underpass at the Dewa Ruci Monument in Kuta to operate safely during rainstorms.

Reports that the tunnel is subject to flooding during heavy rains, despite the installation of an elaborate pumping system, are raising safety concerns. Meanwhile, large volumes of water are also reportedly causing manhole covers on the road to “pop” - creating a hazard to both motorists and motorcyclists.

The chairman of Commission III of the Bali House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), Gusti Made Suryanta Putra, said on Friday, November 16, 2013: “We remind PT Adhi Karya as the main contractor and leader of the project to inspect the underpass. Recent reports from the public indicate flooding in the tunnel during rainstorms. Moreover, on Thursday we heard that a manhole cover was open.”

The legislator warned PT Adhi Karya that if his warning were not heeded, the contractor would be called to account before the DPRD-Bali.

Saying that the majority of the funding for the project came from the Central Government in Jakarta, Suryanta Putra said the Bali legislators still had every right to enquire on conditions at the underpass used by Bali's residents and visitors.

Suryanta Putra used the occasion to repeat a list of long-standing complaints on the management and construction of Island’s first underpass. “We will demonstrate how well the water pumps work during rain storms. From the beginning of the project, we have warned (the Contractor) about inferior work, such as the walls on the tunnel and the roadbed. The roadbed should have used cement, but because of a failure in the cementing process, the road is now covered in asphalt,” said Suryanta Putra.

The legislator said changing the roadbed from cement to asphalt is a variation from the original plans. He warns that this change may result in future road damage due to the lability of land in the area.
