The formal negotiations process has begun for the acquisition of the land needed to build the Simpang Siur underpass at the Dewa Ruci Monument in Kuta.

NusaBali reports that discussions with three of the landowners began in earnest on Wednesday. September 24, 2011 at the District Chief’s offices (camat) for Kuta. Negotiations are said be deadlocked and are expected to continue for at least another two weeks.

The government’s land acquisition team (P2T) for the project offered Rp. 700 million (US$77,700) per are (100 square meter) with an additional amount to be paid for any buildings and structures sacrificed.

The three owners are reported to be considering the offer and have asked until September 27, 2011 to make their decision. Each of the three owners own, respectively, 185 square meters, 660 square meters and 670 square meters.

Meanwhile, the head of the P2T acquisition team, Ida Bagus Yoga Segara, told the press that it is impossible to estimate exactly when the negotiation process will end but, at the same time, he is aware that construction will have to begin on the project by October in order to meet a targeted completion of the project before the APEC Conference in 2013.

Yoga explained that the Rp. 700 million per are did not necessarily apply for all the lands that must be acquired for the underpass project. The price for each individual parcel will be different and a function of location, accessibility, elevation and its zoning classification.

Also still be to be negotiated is a suitable compensation level for any structures standing on the land that will be sacrificed to the road project.
The initial three lots of land now under negotiation, however, are devoid of any buildings.
