The Heavy Load on Baliís Roads

Bali Government Urged to Introduce Maximum Load Limits on Trucks Traveling on Islandís Roads

(2/10/2012) The head of the agency charged with National Roadway Construction for the province (BPJN), Susalit Alius, is calling on Bali to introduce and enforce load and size-limit laws for trucks allowed to travel on the island’s roads.

As reported by Beritabali.com, BJPN is blaming the poor condition of roads in Bali on the operation of large, over-loaded trucks.

Alius called on the provincial government to maximize the use of weighing stations already in place across Bali. He complained that many trucks coming to Bali are carrying loads in excess of 8 tons.

“If we look at the tonnage passing down the roads, it’s clear that they are above 8 tons and many are very long trucks,” explained Susalit.

Alius prays that the Transportation Office in Bali will not only sanction through fines or seize trucks that are overloaded, but will also render punishments to the owners of the vehicles found breaking the law.

“As a tourism destination, Bali needs an infrastructure of roads that are good and adequate,” admonished Alius.
