Whatís Up, Dock?

(7/4/2011)

Further fueling speculation of of poor planning and inferior construction of the yet-to-be-opened Tanah Ampo International Cruise Terminal in East Bali are reports in NusaBali that the passenger pontoon constructed to assist passengers disembarking from cruise ship tenders has been destroyed and washed ashore by  large waves.

On Wednesday, June 29, 2011, what little was left of the steel and timber pontoon and connecting gangway laid on the shores of East Bali, just a few meters away from the cruise ship's pier.

The destruction of the dock puts in doubt a planned visit by a major cruise ship scheduled for July 7, 2010. The head of Karangasem’s transportation department, Ida Bagus Putu Suastika, has assured the press that the demolished pontoon will not pose a problem with a new unit being assembled for installation before the ship’s visit.

Underlining the lack of professional planning and management surrounding the new ship’s terminal, Suastika admitted the initial pontoon was of incorrect design, better suited for use in a pool of water and not at an exposed ocean area.

A new pontoon measuring 18 by 9 meters is now being assembled on the shore that, weather permitting, will be ready in time for the cruise ship’s July visit.
