Construction Zone Ahead

Dewa Ruci Underpass Construction to Start in November. Baliís First Underpass Project to Take Two Years to Complete.

(9/30/2011) According to Beritabali.com, the underpass at the Dewa Ruci monument in Kuta, Bali, will commence construction in November 2011. The project team is currently finalizing the acquisition of land from private hands that will allow the construction to begin.

“The vice-regent of Badung, I Ketut Sudikerta, said on Thursday, September 29, 2011: “Physically, the construction can begin in November. During October we will finish the acquisition of the land and pay compensation (to the owners).”

According to Sudikerta, most of the landowners have already received compensation payments for their land.

Speaking on Thursday, Sudikerta explained: “The remaining two land owners have yet to be paid. Today payment will take place. Hopefully tomorrow (Friday) the payment will be finalized. The development of the underpass represents an urgent need that must be realized. We hope that this can be quickly realized.”

Sudikerta told the press there are no remaining obstacles concerning the land needed for the underpass project.

The underpass at the Dewa Ruci monument in Kuta is targeted for completion before the APEC Summit to be held in Bali in 2013. With an estimated cost of Rp. 300 billion (US$33 million), developers have said the project will be handed over in November 2013.

The length of the underpass will be 450 meters with a width of 18 meters and a height of 5.2 meters.
