A Bridge Too Far?

Estimated Costs and Existing Rules May Make Toll Bridge Connecting Sanur and Nusa Dua Non-Viable.


Bali News: A Bridge Too Far?

(6/25/2007)

Despite initial enthusiasm by local leaders and Bali legislators for a bridge that would connect Sanur's Serangan island with the Benoa peninsula, plans for a span that would reduce the current 30-45 minute strip from Sanur to Nusa Dua to just 5 minutes appear to be on indefinite hold.

The Figures Just Don't Add Up

With estimated costs of the bridge put at nearly US$99 million, financial analysts are finding it difficult to devise a schedule of fees that would provide sufficient revenues to service the debt needed to build the bridge and still remain attractive to those expected to travel the new toll-bridge.

Further complications to the proposed project are current regulations that prohibit motorcycles from traveling on Indonesian toll roads when, in fact, two-wheeled vehicles predominate in the mix of Bali vehicles traveling between Sanur and Nusa Dua.

Local legislators, pressing for the bridge project to move ahead, are calling for a larger financial contribution from the provincial government to reduce the burden for potential investors and changes in toll-road regulations to allow access by motorcycles on the potential toll bridge.
