Bali Post says that efforts by Pelindo III to widen and reclaim the northern portions of Bali's Benoa Port to facilitate tourism and port services have stagnated.

According to the General Manager of the Benoa branch of PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III (Pelindo III), Bambang Priyanto, reclamation efforts have ground to a halt because of the inability to obtain agreement from a number of relevant local institutions. At the same time, other projects at the port, such as the dredging in the area of the passenger terminal and the greening of the port area continue apace.

Priyanto says, that because the port covers a wide area, any reclamation effort needs the cooperation and acquiescence of a number of agencies and community elements.

Despite the current impasse, Pelindo continue to improve the port through dredging to a depth of 9 meters around the main dock areas. "We plan to use the reclamation area to establish a marina for tourism purposes. This location is considered very strategic for Bali tourism due to its proximity to Sanur, Kuta and Nusa Dua," explained the Pelindo III manager.

The re-greening of the port and clean-up of the entire port area continues. These projects include contributing efforts by the municipal government of Denpasar and several public organizations, such as the "Movement to Return to the Village" which has prepared 15,000 coastal pines for planting around the port.

The results of these efforts are providing concrete results with the Benoa Port widely acknowledged as the cleanest port facility under the management of Pelindo III.
