Purchasing the Right-of-Way on the Highway

Landowners on Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai at KFC-Pizza Hut Intersection in Jimbaran, Bali Reject Compensation Offered for Land Needed to Widen Highway

Efforts to widen the north-south highway connecting Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport and Nusa Dua are being place in jeopardy due to the refusal of local property owners to sell the portion of their land needed for the enlarged road.

As reported by NusaBali, the government has offered the price of Rp. 1 billion per are for the 90 square meters needed for the road project (0.9 are). Meanwhile, the owners of several packages of land needed for the project are unified in seeking Rp. 2 billion per are - the amount paid for land acquired by the government to build the Dewa Ruci Underpass Project.

Wayan Sutama, one of the owners of the land, claims he is being unreasonably pressured to sell his land due to the failure of the Government’s appraisal team to meet with him to discuss the purchase price. Sutama complains that the appraisal team simply arrived one day to hand him a letter asking him to agree to the Rp. 1 billion per are price.

That letter set a deadline of December 25, 2017, for the acceptance of the offer. Sutama, together with other owners of the land located at the KFC and Pizza Hut intersection, have refused to sign the agreement, seeking the same price paid for the land acquired for road building at the Dewa Ruci Monument.

Sutama said: “For the time being, we await a decision from the Government. We want the (higher) price to be accommodated. Why should we be paid differently? The Appraisal Team set the price in a unilateral manner without consulting us. We were never invited to negotiate. We were just handed a letter to sign. We feel we are being pressured.”

Sutama said his parcel of land sought by the project measures only 90 square meters (less than 1 are). The land needed from all landowners measures 6 are. Part of the land has been lease by the Pizza Hut Restaurant meaning the owner must also negotiate compensation to the Restaurant that has already leased the land now eyed for the road-widening project.

Sutama said the landowners want to meet with the Assistant Regent of Badung in order that he can mediate the matter. The landowners warn that if the price they are seeking cannot be paid, they are prepared to see the matter settled before the Courts.

The planned widening of the Bypass at the KFC – Pizza Hut intersection will only involve the north-south land, widening the road by 2-meters to facilitate traffic flow.

Pieces of land owned by 8 private individuals measuring 4.9 are is needed for the project’s completion.
