When, exactly, Bali’s new toll road connecting Benoa – Ngurah Rai Airport - Nusa Dua will open and what it will cost to travel Bali’s first toll road remain uncertain.

While Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is expected to formally inaugurate the road on July 13, 2013, the actual opening of the road to traffic may be sometime later.

The State News Agency Antara says that roadworthiness tests will only be completed on July 25, 2013.

But that does not mean the road will immediately open on that date. Drajad Hari Suseno, the spokesman for the roadway’s operators PT Jasa Marga Bali Tol, said: “One the road worthiness tests are done, only then can we seek approval of the tariff for the roadway.”

Drajad said the Ministry of Public Works, the Ministry of Transportation and the Indonesian Police would carry out the roadworthiness certification. The official tariff to be charged the public will be set by the Minister of Public Works.

PT Jasa Marga Bali Tol has already proposed a tariff for four-wheeled vehicles of Rp. 10,000 (US$1.00) and for motorcycles Rp. 4,000 (US$0.40).

Among the areas to be reviewed in determining the roadworthiness of the Bali toll road is the conformance of the road’s design with existing regulations, demarcation and signage and the finishing of the road surface.

Drajad also explained that wind speed monitors are being installed on the road, permitting the road to be closed to motorcycles or cars if wind conditions make the road unsafe for vehicular traffic.
