In part of a program of enhanced security measures at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport, a new exit tollgate together with a 1.2 kilometer access road were formally opened on Friday, April 28, 2006.

The gateway and connecting road, built at a cost of Rp. 7 billion (approximately US$ 777,000), is part of an ongoing program to reduce the danger of terrorist attacks at Bali's only international airport. The new gateway and road will divert road traffic off the current access road, judge by security experts to be too close to aircraft parked on the airport's tarmac. Additional work is now underway that will eventually close the current access road to all public traffic, diverting both inbound and outbound vehicular traffic to the new gate and roadway.

Extensive Safety Improvements

Other safety improvements recently introduced at Bali's airport, include:

• Improved perimeter fencing encircling the entire airport.

• A state-of-the-art "Crisis Center" coordinated by the Airport Authority Administrator and under the command of the Denpasar Chief of Police to act as a monitoring and command post control center for airport security.

• Regular large-scale emergency drills enacting a whole variety of emergency situations ranging from unidentified packages, to air disasters, to a simulated hijacking.

• All passenger, baggage and cargo screening equipment now undergo daily operational reviews with a staff now specially dedicated to maintenance and repair.

• An increase from 217 to 650 the number of trained security personnel employed at the Airport. Security staff are further supplemented by elite security personnel provided by the Indonesian Armed Forces.
