Governor Continues to Support Idea of a North Bali Airport Built on Reclaimed Land in the Indian Ocean

(8/23/2014)

Bali’s governor Made Mangku Pastika is urging that 600 hectares of offshore ocean area be reclaimed near Kubutambahan, Buleleng, North Bali to serve as the runway for the new North Bali Airport.

The proposed runway is estimated to require 134 million cubic meters of landfill to create a new landmass in a sea area not exceeding more than 100 meters in depth.

Kinesis – a Canadian consulting firm, first proposed the offshore airport concept to Governor Pastika.

As reported by Beritabali.com, Governor Pastika issued his appreciation to Kinesis for the dynamic plan for an airport constructed in the ocean on reclaimed land. The Canadian consultants, accompanied by the commercial attaché of the Indonesian Embassy in Canada, Tommy Ruslim, made a formal presentation at the Governor’s office in Bali on Wednesday, August 20, 2014.

Pastika has been involved in seven separate redrafts of the North Bali Airport plan and is reported to now be pleased with the proposal now under active consideration. The governor favors the airport built over reclaimed land as a means of eliminating the expensive and time-consuming steps of land acquisition.

Governor Pastika explained: “It’s certain that the airport will be in Kubutambahan where there is a great deal of ‘first class’ rice fields. So if we use this land (for the airport), we are worried that it will disrupt rice production in the area.”

At the same time Pastika has asked for a careful study of the ocean to be carried out in Kubutambahan where it is well known that the water depths are deep and the waves large.

Pastika has also called on the consultants involved with the airport to prepare detailed reviews of the cost of construction, management costs and future income of the airport once it is constructed.

“I am asking you to explain (the project in detail) in terms of what you are offering to us, because in addition to proposal from Airport Kinesis Canada there are two other consultants competing for this project,” said Pastika.

The Governor said he has yet to receive formal approval for the North Bali Airport from the Ministry of Transportation. He share his concern that the current transition of power in Indonesia may delay the needed green light for the project to proceed,

It is understood that the proposal put forth by Kinesis includes a hospital, an aviation academy and supporting facilities for the operation of an air gateway.
