An Impasse at the Underpass

(5/9/2012)

Plans to commence construction of the huge underpass project at the Simpang Siur in Kuta remains in suspended animation due to continuing problems acquiring the privately owned land parcels needed to commence building the new road system surrounding Bali's busiest intersection.
Depicting a bureaucracy bogged down in its own red tape, officials from the legal division of the Badung regency, I Ketut Martha, told NusaBali he is unaware if the required official letter fixing the exact geographical parameters of the project has been issued. The subject letter must be issued in order that subsequent letters can be issued by the regency that will pave the way for government administrators to begin the land acquisition process.
Separately, statements from I Nyoman Soka of Badung's regulatory and procedure section (Tapem) serve to further underline the somewhat muddled state of affairs surrounding the underpass project. Soka told the press he had yet to received the official location description (SP2LP) prepared by the projects working team. He also explained that while the regency of Badung served as an facilitator for the project, the entire underpass project, in fact, belongs to the central government.
Soka was unable to explain exactly what, if any, obstacles are being encountered in freeing the land for the project but emphasized such work requires detailed and accurate execution to ensure the required parcels are acquired and suitable compensation is paid to the existing land owners.
Meanwhile, the head of the working group for the underpass project, I Nyoman Sumerta, insists that the location fixing survey and letter (SP2LP) were sent to the Badung regency two months ago and that the road project is awaiting confirmation that the required land parcels have been acquired in order that the project can proceed.
