Getting Bali on Track

(11/27/2010)

The Director General for Destination Development from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Firmansyah Rahim, is lobbying both the Bali and the national governments to built a rail system that will circumnavigate the island.

The proposal, delivered by Firmansyah to Bali's governor Made Pastika on November 25, 2010, is viewed as a means of overcoming the traffic congestion in Bali resulting from the burgeoning tourist trade and creating a more equitable distribution of visitors to all corners of the island. The tourism official told the press, "this suggestion represents a solution offering tourists a chance to take a train around Bali."

The proposed train would be of a special low-speed design.

The proposal, expected to receive the endorsement of Bali's governor, could quickly enter the design and feasibility phase. The Ministry of Culture and Tourism have put a preliminary cost estimate of Rp 6 trillion (US$652 million) and a proposed ticket price of US$30 for those selecting to ride the train.
