After initially announcing that three different areas in South Bali would be closed to all vehicular traffic on New Years Eve (See: Leave Your Car at Home this New Year’s Eve), the Bali police have relented and decided that, as in years past, a “car free zone” will apply only on Jalan Legian and Jalan Pantai Kuta in the Kuta Beach area of Bali.
Those two busy roads in Kuta will be closed to all traffic from 4:00 pm on Monday, December 31, 2012 and reopen to traffic on the morning of January 1, 2013.
As reported by Kompas.com, cars with passengers wishing to access the center of Kuta will be diverted to the “Central Parkir” area on Jalan Iman Bonjol and other satellite parking areaz on the periphery of Kuta. From these parking areas, New Years revelers will then have to make their way to Kuta on foot.
After reconsidering the matter, police have decided not to introduce “car free area” in Nusa Dua and Renon, limiting the “car free” zone to Kuta alone.
Police have also set up supplemental security posts at 73 locations in South Bali that will be staffed by 212 police officers.
