Bali Toll Road Managers Given One Year to Remove Temporary Access Roads Built Over Mangrove Forest Wetlands

The Jakarta Post reports that PT Jasa Marga Bali Tol – the builder and operator of Bali'z new toll road has been given a one-year period in which to restore wetlands and mangrove areas disturbed in the construction process of the 12.7-kilometer road suspended over Benoa Bay.

Nyoman Sujaya who heads the Bali Environmental Agency said: “We hope that the company finishes the rehabilitation work earlier than the timeframe. The project’s environmental impact analysis (AMDAL) stipulates that the company has a maximum of one year to rehabilitate any environmental damage caused by the project,”

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono schedules the road for formal inauguration on July 13, 2013

Original plans to carefully preserve and protect the existing mangrove forest by constructing the elevated roadway by using floating pontoons was quickly abandoned when water depths were found to be too shallow. When contractors began building access roads made of limestone through the wetlands environmentalists protested that irreversible damage was being inflicted on the ecologically-critical mangrove that buffers Bali’s southern shoreline.

The builders then modified the original environmental impact study for the project, promising to remove all the access roads and return water flows through and past the 34,000 concrete pillars installed to support the roadway as part of the construction process.

Meanwhile, PT Jasa Marga Bali Tol insists it will keep its promise and that dredging to remove the temporary roadways has already begun.
