Lowdown on Keeping Things Green in Bali

Bali Underpass Project Must Submit an Environmental Impact Study Before Construction Can Begin.

(4/4/2011)

The long-awaited and desperately needed underpass project at the Simpang Siur intersection in Bali is suffering a plethora of detours. The project is still awaiting a formal tender process; there is a continuing debate over property acquisition matters; and the latest roadblock to the Rp. 311 billion (US$34.5 million) project is the apparent lack of an environmental impact study required before the commencement of any new project, public or private, in Bali.

The status of the environmental impact study is a matter of some debate, with the regional government of Badung insisting the preparation of the environmental study for the road project is not their responsibility.

When the project director of what is a national road project was pressed by the Bali Post, Wahyudiono admitted the required study does not yet exists as it is being prepared by the central government via the office of Public Works.

Wahyudion also admitted that he is still unsure whether or not the environmental impact clearance will be issued in the form of an approved environmental impact plan or as a management plan/monitoring plan.

The project manager remains optimistic that the Department of Public Works will issue the required environmental impact study.

Wahyudiono also dismissed concerns over land acquisition issues, saying that this matter is being handled completely by the regional government of Bandung. He remains confident that the submission of bid documents will take place in the first week of April 2011.

Original plans called for a double underpass 1.2 kilometers in length with one north-south route connecting the airport road to the Sunset road and another connecting the airport road to Sanur. Because of plans to build a new Sanur-Nusa Dua toll way, plans were curtailed to a single underpass of only 800 meters long on the north-south connection. Land acquisition requirements for the project have been similarly curtailed from a total 1.6 hectares to 6,075 square meters.
