A Span in the Works?

Local Legislators and City Planners Keen to Start Building Sanur to Nusa Dua Bridge in 2007.

(3/10/2007)

As reported on balidiscovery.com plans have long been under discussion to shorten the traveling time between Sanur Beach and Nusa Dua through the construction of a bridge connecting Serangan Island and Nusa Dua. The proposed toll-bridge would also potentially reduce congestion on Bali's main ring-road – Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai, which connects Bali's southern peninsula and Nusa Dua with the rest of the Island.

Detailed engineering studies have been completed for the toll bridge including a design that will allow shipping traffic to pass in and out of Port of Benoa. Preliminary estimates put the price of the bridge at Rp. 900 billion (approximately US$97.8 million).

A Problem of Funding

How a project of this size will be financed is problematic. National funding for the care and development of roads in Bali falls far short of the amount required, with only Rp. 100 billion (approximately US$10.86 billion) allocated by Jakarta for this purpose. Local political leaders supporting the project are urging that the Bali bridge be jointly funded by National and Provincial government in combination with overseas borrowings, with local press reports suggesting the People's Republic of China has expressed an interest in providing financial support for the bridge.

Full Steam Ahead?

The Indonesian-language Bali Post quotes the Chief of Public Works for Bali, I.B. Sidharta, as saying the proposed project will commence this year with the bidding phase to commence for the feeder roads to connect the bridge on Serangan Island and at Tanjung Benoa. "We will try to construct the (feeder) roads first and once they are ready we will seek investors for the construction of the actual bridge," explained Sidharta.
