Heavy rains over the Galungan holidays has caused landslides and road subsidence on two major roads in the Buleleng regency of Bali.
- A landslide on Jalan Raya Singaraja – Almapura at the village of Pucung near Tejakula is impeding traffic along the main coastal artery in Bali’s northeast. The shoulder of the road collapsed, reducing the width of the road by 50%
- Another landslide and falling trees on the main road connecting Jalan Raya Seririt and Pupuan at the village of Subuk, in the Busungbui district disrupted north-south traffic on the road connecting Tabanan with Buleleng. Half of the road along a 15 meter stretch collapsed into a ravine causing traffic to come to crawl while two-way traffic carefully negotiated the remaining narrow piece of roadway.
Efforts are underway to repair the affected pieces of highway as quickly as possible.
