Indecision is Expensive

Bali Urged to Quickly Decide Location of New Airport of the North


Bali News: Indecision is Expensive

(4/14/2014)

The provincial government of Bali and the regional government of Buleleng in north Bali have been told by a consultant on infrastructure development that they must quickly decide the locations for Bali’s 2nd international airport in order to begin budgeting and preparing for a toll road on which to access the new airport.

Beritabali.com carries the warning from A.A. Putu Ngurah Wirawan, delivered on April 6, 2014 in Denpasar. Wirawan said that there’s more to Bali’s new airport of the north than merely building the aerodrome, saying the equally important supporting infrastructure facilities must also be considered.

Said Wirawan: “I have been told that the Public Works Department (Dirjen Bina Marga) that they are in the midst of devising a five-year strategic program. This plan will include recommendations from all areas of Indonesia, including budgeting for the building of the airport in Bulleleng Bali.”

Wirawan said that if the province and the regional government fail to quickly decide the location of the new airport in north Bali, the Department of Public Works will find it difficult to budget an access road to connect the new airport with the rest of Bali.

“In connection with the access road from the south of Bali to its north, the Public Works department have yet to propose a definite road project. The longer this is postponed and we will lose the chance to prepare detailed engineering designs for the project. This is even going to prove more difficult in 2015 when a new government and parliament assumes power.”

“So let's determine the location first so we can make a budget for a detailed engineering design, feasibility study and the other documentation can be prepared. In this way we can start the planning,” he said.

He explained that if the location for the new Bali airport can be decided this year, the Department of Public Works can provide a budget next year for land surveys and a connecting highway to the south of Bali. If the process is delayed, Wirawan is concerned the entire project will remain unfunded or the airport might be built without the needed access road.
