(8/3/2014)

The Bali Post has published a page-one expose gleaned from an official publication by PT Tirta Wahana Bali International (PT RWBI) the company designated to undertake the reclamation of 810 hectares of what was once a protected mangrove forests area in Benoa Bay.

According to the plan drawn up by PT TWBI:

  • The 810-hectare reclamation project is estimated to take 34 months.
  • 40% of the reclaimed area is to be set aside for “green areas”
  • The cost of the reclamation and development of the new lands is estimated at Rp. 30 trillion (US$2.6 billion).
  • 84.2 hectares of the development is designated for meeting, conference, incentive and exhibition facilities (MICE).
  • 37.2 hectares will be designated for mixed commercial and residential purposes.
  • 116.9 hectares will be dedicated to recreation and resort development.
  • 29.4 hectares will be used for office space.
  • 389.7 hectares will be used for apartments, villas and villas suspended over water.
  • 8.3 hectares for public facilities.
  • Only 10.95 of the reclaimed area or 85 hectares will be reserved for “open spaces.” This is apparently at variance with initial plans put forward that said 40% of the reclaimed land would be for green “open spaces.”
  • Soil for reclamation will be taken from dredging in the Benoa Bay and surrounding islands in Benoa Bay. More sand and landfill will be taken from Sawangan, Nusa Dua and Sekotong in Lombok, and Karangasem.
No date for the commencement of work has been declared,while widespread protests against the project continue to come from broad segments of the Balinese community.
