(5/25/2014) reports that the provincial government of Bali has restated its commitment to build a rail system that circles the Island.

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika explained on Monday, May 12, 2014, that he long ago lodged his desire with Jakarta for a rail service to circle the Island with officials in Jakarta.

“Right now (Jakarta) is still busy with politics. But after the elections development will resume. By a minimum of 2015 the construction can begin,” said the governor.

Pastika said the new Bali rail system already formed a part of the Master Plan for Acceleration and Expansion of Indonesia’s Economic Development (MP3EI) with a preliminary budget allocation of at least Rp. 15 trillion (US$1.3 billion).

The construction will be undertaken by the State-Owed PT Kereta Api Indonesia (PT KAI) or a consortium.

Pastika said the design concept for the new rail system in Bali would differ from normal trains in that it will be primarily focused on tourism. 

The governor said the first phase of the new railroad would connect Badung – Denpasar – Gianyar (Ubud).

The phased construction of the rail system would eventually cover the entire Island.

The system would eventually connect the existing airport and new airport in Buleleng, the capital, main tourist sites, land transportation terminals and seaports.

The province plans to trade provincially owned land for land held in private hands to obtain right of ways for the rail project.
