(12/31/2001)

In order to handle the extremely large number of domestic visitors during the current holiday period, Bali's police have introduced a high "Siaga I" state of alert together with other additional measures to ensure New Year's festivities pass without incident.

The Chief of Information for the Bali Provincial Police, AKBP Y. Suyatmo, was quick to underline that the introduction of a Siaga I status for the island should not be interpreted to mean the police have identified a specific threat to public safety but, rather, be seen as a state of the highest preparedness to handle the large crowds of revelers expected over the New Year's eve.

In order to anticipate the large crowds expected in the Kuta area of Bali the Police have introduced a total parking ban on Kuta streets, providing for centralized parking on Kuta's perimeter area. The access to Kuta and traffic flow have also been altered to ensure the traffic keeps moving, including:

+ Vehicles entering Kuta will have to take the airport road near the airport.

+ Traffic coming down Jalan Iman Bonjol will be diverted to the Dewa Ruci Monument and along the Bypass to enter Kuta via the Airport Road.

+ Vehicles exiting from the Kuta area will also be forced to follow a one-way traffic pattern along Jalan Raya Tuban to Jalan Pantai to Jalan Raya Seminyak to Pettitinget exiting past the Kerobokan Prison to Jalan Iman Bonjol.

+ One Way restriction to be imposed on the Kerobokan Prison Road. No travel in the direction of Seminyak with travel to be diverted to Gn. Soputan.

+ Jalan Seminyak will become a one-way street from Legian heading to Kerobokan.

+ Jalan Gn. Soputan will be closed to westbound traffic from Jalan Iman Bonjol.

Traffic has been unusually heavy over the Christmas period due to the large number of domestic vehicles visiting from Java. If the past week has been any indication, those bringing their cars to Kuta during the New Year celebrations should expect substantial delays.
