Plans to commence construction on December 15, 2011 of Dewa Ruci Underpass Project at the Simpang Siur intersection in Kuta, Bali, have been delayed until December 21.

Speaking to The Bali Post, the vice-regent of Badung, I Ketut Sudikerta, on Monday December 12, 2011, confirmed the new starting date for the project was made necessary due to administrative delays in compensation being paid to land owners.

Said Suidkerta: “This, in fact, was not a delay because December 15th was a deadline for the completion of administration and compensation payments - both for the land certificates held by the banks as surety, certificates held directly by the land owners or for certificates caught up in legal technicalities with the State Land Agency. What’s clear, the ceremony for the placement of the cornerstone or groundbreaking will take place on December 21st. On that same date will also be the cornerstone placement for the construction of the suspended toll road between Nusa Dua and Benoa.”

He went on to add that the process of acquiring the land is now free of any remaining problems, with the purchase price for two parcels of land involved in an ownership dispute now temporarily held by the Denpasar District Court. The remaining 21 parcels of land have been formally acquired for the underpass project.

Sudikerta said there are no longer any impediments to starting the underpass on December 21, 2011. The central government has provided Rp. 180 billion (US$20 million) to fund the construction of the underpass, an amount outside the cost of land acquisition which remained a cost to be born by the province and regency.
