Udayana University Researcher Calls for Comprehensive Feasibility Study Before Work Commences on North Bali Airport.

The head of the research department on culture and tourism at Bali's Udayana University, Dr. Agung Suryawan Wiranatha, has warned that any plans to construct a new airport in Bali's north must be preceded by a comprehensive study that will conclusively demonstrate that the proposed new air gateway will achieve its stated goal of reducing tourism congestion in the south.

As reported by Bisnis Bali, Wiranatha stated that the concentration of tourism accommodation facilities in the southern part of the island feeds the resulting heavy tourist concentration and supporting population densities. While the government may add an airport in the north of the island in their attempt to more evenly distribute tourism flows, this alone will not change the public recommendations, tastes or consumer preferences. Because of this, any plan to build an airport in the north must be based on a well conceived and comprehensive study.

Wiranatha said the comprehensive study he advocates would involve experts from the Ministry of Transportation. That team would then determine whether the proposed new airport should be built in west, central or east Buleleng. "Whatever their findings on the feasibility (of the proposed airport), those recommendations should be received without prejudice by the Ministry of Transportation," advised Wiranatha.

The Udayana University researcher and academic feels it is appropriate for Bali to build a new airport away from the over-congested south, but warns that its remains to be determined if the north of Bali is the proper place for such a facility.

Wiranatha called on the provincial government of Bali to work with the Ministry of Transportation in performing the necessary comprehensive feasibility study in order to absolutely determine the viability of north Bali for a new airport. Such a study may well conclusively demonstrate that the proposed airport will spread the jobs and income brought by tourism to the island's north, east and west.
