Citing the need to maintain distribution systems, public safety and support the island’s tourism industry, governor Made Mangku Pastika has allocated Rp. 135.9 billion (US$15.4 million) in the 2012 provincial budget for repairs and improvements on Bali’s roads.
Kompas.com says the amount set aside for road repairs is more that the Rp. 85.3 billion (US$9.7 million) spent in 2011 on the 860.53 kilometers road network stretching across the 9 regencies and metropolitan districts of Bali.
17.32% of all roads in Bali are now categorized by the provincial government as “badly damaged” and in urgent need of repairs.
