The management authority for Bali’s Airport, PT Angkasa Pura I (PT AP-I), are targeting the end of November 2017 for the start of construction on an extension of Bali Airport’s apron into the ocean at the western end of the runway. The green light to commence the reclamation has been received with the completion by Udayana University of currents and tidal movement in the areas affected by the project.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the general manager of PT AP-l, Gusti Ngurah Rai, Yanus Suprayogi, said construction would commence in November or, by the latest, the end of the year.

The formal findings of the Udayana University study will be delivered in the coming days in order that construction can begin. The study examines the potential erosion and abrasion effects that will result from the reclamation needed to extend the runway’s apron.

The extension of the apron at the end of the runway has already received a nod of approval from the Regent of Badung and the villages adjoining the airport.

When completed, the reclamation will consume a space covering 84 hectares of sea bottom. 43 hectares from that total will be used for aircraft parking, space enough to park three wide-bodied aircraft. The remaining 41 hectares is reserved for future mid to long-term development of the airport.

Plans to build the apron extension using support pillars was abandoned when it was determined the water was too deep and the resulting need for extensive drilling to secure supporting pillars.

Yanus revealed that the plans to extend the apron on the western end of the main runway will cost some Rp. 1.7 trillion and is targeted to be completed by August 2018, in time to be used for the many additional VIP aircraft expected in October 2018 in connection with the conference in Bali for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank.
