Authorities Reveal Plans to Reduce Traffic Congestion in the Kuta Corridor

(5/23/2014)

Despite the opening of Bali’s first toll way and the new underpass at the Dewa Ruci Monument, traffic congestion continues to be a major problem in Bali, primarily in the Kuta traffic corridor.

The head of the traffic division of the Badung Regency Department of Transportation, Communication and Information (Dihubkominfo), Tofan Priyanto, told the Regional House of Representative (DPRD-Badung) on May 19, 2014 that the flow of traffic on the North Kuta, Kuta, and South Kuta corridor is averaging some 4,000 vehicles per hour.

These high traffic levels result in some areas experiencing gridlock.

Given the road conditions in the Kuta corridor, a more ideal flow of traffic would be around 3,000 vehicles per hour.

In an effort to overcome the problem of traffic congestion a number of steps have been undertaken, including:

  • Stricter law enforcement on illegal parking on public roadways.
  • Priority planning and maximizing the use of feeder vehicles to the main public transport routes.
  • Limiting the use of certain vehicles in high traffic area, such as barring the entry of trucks weighing 5 tons or more from entering the Kuta area.
Dihubkominfo is pushing ahead with plans to install an Automated Traffic Control System (ATCS) in many areas of Kuta. The ATCS system employs surveillance equipment that will adjust the phasing of traffic lights at key intersections.

The ATCS system will initially be installed at six points across Kuta.

Tofan said the ATCS system will cost Rp. 4.1 billion (US$357,000) needed to purchase cameras and operating software, and the cost of building a sophisticated control room to operate the system.

Current plans are to install the ATCS at the following intersections:
  • Jalan Iman Bonjol and Sunset Road.
  • Jalan Mertanadi and Sunset Road.
  • Jalan Nakula and Sunset Road.
  • Jalan Kunti and Sunset Road.
  • The Banjar Semer intersection heading towards Canggu.
  • At the Petitenget intersection west of the Kerobokan penitentiary.
Eventually cameras will be in operation at all intersections that can both monitor traffic conditions on a real time basis as well as automatically count the volume of passing vehicles.
