Bali Urgently Needs a Toll Road Connecting Gilimanuk and Denpasar

(2/1/2014)

The head of the National Highway Agency (BPJN), Miftachul Munir, told Beritabali.com on Friday, January 31, 2014, that a toll road connecting Denpasar with the western ferry port of Gilimanuk is urgently needed to alleviate traffic congestion.

“For the future we are thinking of developing the road connecting Gilimanuk and Denpasar into a toll road. We will include this in our strategic planning and undertake a study. The Gilimanuk – Denpasar road is known know as a skull and bones roadway because of its many accidents. Because of this we need a solution to this problem,” explained Munir.

The Gilimanuk-Denpasar road covers 140-kilometers and is a heavily travelled road in the trans-national road network connecting Sumatra-Java-Bali-West Nusa Tenggara-East Nusa Tenggara. Heavily loaded trucks filled with cargo from Java place strains on the road running down the west coast of Bali.

Munir said that the realization of a Gilimanuk-Denpasar toll road depends entirely on the commitment of the provincial government of Bali and its readiness to acquire the land needed to build the proposed roadway.

Munir is recommending that, in the short term, congestion on the current road connection Gilimanuk-Denpasar can be reduced by assigning good trucks to take a northerly route to Gilimanuk via Buleleng. Meanwhile, passenger and tourist vehicles would be directed to use the current route connecting Denpasar and Gilimanuk.

Munir warned, for such a division of traffic to take place, all the involved parties would need to sit down and come to an agreement.
