Malaysian Business Group Offers to Build Nusa Dua Bridge

Discussed for More than 3 Years, Malaysian Group Offers to Build a Series of Toll Roads In Southern Bali.

(6/15/2008) Tempo Interaktif reports that business circles in Bali are enthusiastically welcoming an approach from a group of leading Malaysian businesspeople who have formed a consortium offering to build a bridge connecting Sanur and Nusa Dua.

Earlier, Malaysian businessman Datuk Khalid, representing Gridcomm Shd. BHD and Isyoda Corporation Berhad, met with Baliís Governor and offered to build the long-discussed toll-bridge connecting Serangan Island with Tanjung Benoa.

The proposed toll way would stretch 7.5 km between Sanur and Tanjung Benoa while a separate 4.5 km elevated highway would connect Bali's airport with Nusa Dua. The airport toll road project is comprised of 4 distinct roadways individually serving four-wheeled vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians.

The Malaysian consortium has offered two alternatives to the Governor that will allow the project to go ahead. One approach would see the consortium invest an estimated Rp. 4.202 trillium (US$44.1 million) which does not include the cost of land acquisition, while an alternative solution sees the government assuming all costs and appointing the Malaysian consortium as contractors.

The Governor has ordered his technical team to review the proposal.
