(4/25/2011)

The chief of National Road Building Agency from the Department of Public Works, for Bali, West and East Nusa Tengarra, Susalit Alius, told Nusa Bali that although engineering plans for the Simpang Siur Underpass Project in Bali are now in their final  phase of completion, a number of technical obstacles remain to be overcome for the underpass project to proceed.

Said Alius, "the technical obstacle we confront at the moment is that we are still unable to locate the technical installation drawings for the Dewa Ruci Monument in order to determine the structure of the statue's foundations." The drawing are needed so engineers building the underpass can determine how to protect the monument during the construction of the underpass. 

Explaining the problem, Alius described how the underpass will be constructed within the distance of a few meters from the monument's base meaning any mistakes or miscalculation could damage or irrevocably destroy the landmark. "We have already looked in various places and asked various sources for the drawings, but all to no avail," he said.

In addition to the missing technical drawings, Alius  spoke of problems presented by the high ground water levels in the area of the proposed underpass. During the construction phases, continual pumping of ground water must take place and once the underpass is put into operation a total of eight pumps evacuating six cubic meters of ground water every minute will be needed to operate around the clock.

The underpass will stretch for a road distance of 800 meters including a 40 meter underground  tunnel section connecting the southern part of the island with the Sunset Road.
