(6/7/2012)

Members of Bali’s House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) are expressing concerns that the elevated toll road connecting Benoa and Nusa Dua will not solve the island’s traffic congestion, but only move current road congestion to the new roadway.

Quoted by Seputarbali.com, the vice-chairman of the DPRD-Bali, Ketut Suwandhi, said: “After I checked in the field, the fear arose that we will (only) see a new traffic jam. This is because the gateway accessing the new road is located close to the present road.”

In a House hearing in which the director of PT Jasa Marga Tol Bali, the company constructing the suspended highway, participated in a question and answer session with legislators, the contractors were asked to reevaluate the access plan for the toll way.

Supporting the call was the deputy speaker of DPRD-Bali was Gusti Made Suryantha Putra, who said that he hope the toll way’s construction would reduce traffic congestion in the island’s south.

Another legislator, Ida Bagus Pada Kusuma, asked the House if the capacity of the new toll way has taken into consideration the growing number of vehicles on Bali’s roadways. “I am also worried that in ten year’s time the toll way will become congested creating a new traffic jam,” he said.

The CEO of Jasa Marga and the Bali Toll Project, Ahkmad Tito Karim, explained that his companies are only the people executing the project and are not empowered to change the project design. He also explained, that the gateways for the toll way will be positioned in such a way to reduced the possibility of congestion at entry points. The gateways and the placement of toll booths will be set back from the main toad about 500 meters to prevent the entry lines from backing up to the main road.
