As reported on balidiscovery.com in our coverage[Trafficking in Confusion] major changes in the traffic grid are planned in the Kuta-Legian-Seminyak area.
While earlier reports in the local press indicated the many changes in one-way streets and traffic flow would take effect from May 1, 2005, subsequent reports now say that the traffic changes will only be gardually introduced after a two week socialization of new parking rules in the Kuta-Legian-Seminyak area.
Under the program of traffic changes new parking prohibitions are being introduced on Jalan Legian, Jalan Singosari (formerly Jalan Bakungsari), Jalan Dewi Sartika, Jalan Pantai Kuta and Jalan Raya Kuta.
In addition, policies limiting the areas in which taxis and public transport can embark and disembark passengers are also being introduced under the traffic revamp.
Local police and traffic authorities are vowing to use a "soft-gloved" approach during the initial introduction of new parking regulations, seeking the public's cooperation before introducing more draconian enforcement measures.
