The On Again Off Again Traffic Jam

Traffic Authorities Hint They'll Make a 'Trial Run' at New Kuta-Legian Traffic Grid Starting Monday, June 13, 2005.


(6/13/2005)

As reported in [ Trafficking in Confusion ], Bali's traffic authorities had announced massive changes in traffic patterns in the Kuta – Legian area originally scheduled to take effect on May 1, 2005. However, that date came and went, with traffic officers wringing their hands and citing a need for more "socialization" while promising the new traffic routes would "soon" be implemented.

Here We Go Again!

If reports in the local press last are correct, a limited one-week trial period introducing a portion of the new traffic grid may be introduced starting from Monday, June 13, 2005.

If your confused by what follows, so are we.



Jalan Ciung Warna

• Vehicle travelling on Jalan Ciung Wanara (the small east-west street running along the side of Kuta Square to Jalan Buni Sari) can only travel in one direction, from Kuta Square towards Jalan Buni Sari.

• Vehicles travelling on Jalan Dewi Sartika (the big street running past Waterbom Park and Kuta Center) will not be allowed to turn into Jalan Ciung Wanara. These vehicles will either have to turn east one street earlier, at Jalan Singosari, or continue on travelling north on Jalan Kuta Square.

• Jalan Singosari is undergoing a complete direction reversal, now a one way street running from Jalan Dewi Sartika with a single outlet onto northbound Jalan Buni Sari.

• Traffic from Jalan Raya Kuta will only be allowed to travel east to west on Jalan Singosari as far as the triple intersection of Jalan Singosari and Jalan Buni Sari where all vehicle must turn right onto Jalan Buni Sari in the direction of Bemo Corner.

• While Jalan Dewi Sartika remains two way, vehicles will no longer be able to access the hotels, restaurants and recreation venues in Tuban from Jalan Singosari. Those travelling to these destinations will either have to access this area from the "airport-end" of Tuban or by travelling past Bemo Corner, down Jalan Pantai Kuta (past the original Warung Made) and turn left onto Jalan Kuta Square driving past Kuta Square.

• Jalan Dewi Sartika will also be declared a parking-free area. And, no, should you ask, we're not sure where all the horse-drawn dokars are going.

Jalan Arjuna

• Jalan Arjuna, which was formerly a two-way street, will become a one-way street running west to east.

Stay alert! According to press reports, however, Jalan Arjuna will continue to be open to "limited" two-way traffic by motorcyclists and “tourism vehicles.”

• Vehicles travelling on Jalan Arjuna will connect to Jalan Werkudara (Padma Utara) via Jalan Paving which is a one-way street travelling north to south.

• Jalan Werkudara is a one-way street travelling west to east.

A week of Tolerance

Authorities are promising a week of "persuasion" and "tolerance" following the introduction of the changes in traffic direction before introducing more strident enforcement measures.

Some Words to the Wise

• It might be a good week for those travelling in Kuta to support their local taxi drivers. Whenever possible, delegate frustration.

• Give yourself plenty of extra time if you're travelling to or through the affected areas. Consider staying overnight in a Kuta-area hotel for meetings commencing before 10:00 a.m.. Alternatively, you might pack several days of survivial rations.

• Before leaving home, make sure your vehicle's horn is in good working order. It won't make much difference, but it's good to have a non-destructive outlet for your frustration close at hand.

• Accept assistance from any source. Put Balinese floral offerings on your dashboard right next to the St. Christopher medal.

• Consider advancing the start date of your get-fit-start-walking program.
