Street Lamps Go Missing on a 20-Kilometer Stretch of Bali’s Ida Bagus Mantra Highway

(8/24/2012)

The Bali Post reports that tens of street lamps that were purchased to be installed on the Jalan Ida Bagus Mantra highway have mysteriously disappeared.

As a result, sections of the modern, divided highways in the regency of Gianyar are in total darkness during nighttime hours. Hopes by many that the road lamps would be installed now the roadwork has been completed have come to naught.

Prior to the most recent construction when the road was still a single road running in two directions, road lamps were already in operation on the highways. However, with the launch of the modern divided highway illumination of any kind on some sections of the road have disappeared.
A 20-kilometer stretch of the highway in Gianyar has made that section of the road treacherous in terms of accidents and criminal acts carried out under the cover of darkness.

The darkness and the accompanying threat to public safety caused Bali police to station extra staff along the highway during the Lebaran Holidays when traffic levels run very high on the island’s main highways.

Police from the Gianyar Post recently sent formal letter to the provincial government of Bali asking that urgent steps be taken to install street lighting on the highway.
