Making Kuta's Streets Safe for the Public

Bali Legislators Call for More Pedestrian Friendly Roads in Kuta – Legian Area.

(1/16/2008)

The physical infrastructure for streets in Bali is inadequate to meet the safety requirements of pedestrians and vehicular road users. Bad road surface conditions, the lack of sidewalks, insufficient drainage, and the absence of shaded and green corridors – all contribute to Kuta's failure to meet standards of safety needed for tourist areas with high levels of pedestrian traffic.

Complaining in the Bali Post regarding the condition of Kuta's roadways is, I Wayan Puspanegara, a member of Commission B of the Regional Legislative Council (DPRD) for Badung and a native of Legian. According to Puspanegara, the high street of Kuta, Kuta beach, Legian, and Jalan Dewi Sartika all need a comprehensive and integrated upgrade. To that end, he has proposed a pilot project to create a roadway in Kuta, meeting the international standards exhibited by Hawaii and Singapore.

Joining Puspanegara in his demand for better thoroughfares in Kuta is another legislative council member, Nyoman Bagiana Karang, who said more attention needs to be paid to Kuta's role as an icon of Bali's travel industry. Complained Karang: "I and fellow council members have repeatedly raised these issues (with the Badung administration), but with no results. All we get (in reply) are temporary minor repairs on the roads."

Meanwhile, a development officer of the Badung government, I Wayan Suambara, has replied, pointing out that there are plans to create a pedestrian area along Jalan Legian, prohibiting traffic from stopping or parking anywhere along the busy business area surround that roadway.
