The Bali Post reports that the land acquisition process for the Simpang Siur Underpass in Kuta has been completed and construction will commence on December 15, 2011. The remaining landowners have all signed formal agreements agreeing a price for their property and the payment process is underway.
The vice-chairman of the committee to secure the land for the underpass project, I Nyoman Soka, told the press on Friday, December 2, 2011, that payment to 11 of the landowners has been completed. The remaining land certificates will be soon secured once problems, such as certificates being held as loan security by banks and certificates under process by the National Land Agency (BPN), are sorted out. Soka assured that there are no remaining obstacle of any significance in securing the necessary land for the project with prices and formal documentation agreed and signed.
He confirmed that the actual physical construction of the project would begin on December 15, 2011, with a formal groundbreaking ceremony.
Soka called on the remaining landowners to complete the administrative steps necessary for the handover of their parcels of land so payment can be made and the project can move ahead at full speed.
The project was originally scheduled to begin in November but was pushed back for an additional month while land acquisition issues were addressed.
The underpass project will be completed in April of 2013.
