Radar Bali reports the completed work on the elevated toll way connection Nusa Dua – Ngurah Rai Airport and Nusa Dua stands at 25%, as of the end of August 2013.

As reported by Balidiscovery.com, the entire toll way project is scheduled for completion on April 25, 2013. [See: And I’ll Take the High Road].

Concerns are growing as whether the toll way project will be completed on time. Work has come to a virtual standstill over the Idul Fitri Holidays during August 2012. More recently, protests by local environmental groups that the builders of the toll way are breaking pledges not to excavate the wet lands of Bali’s mangrove forest have drawn promises from the provincial government that excavations will stop until a new environmental impact study can be completed; at the same time fueling and concerns that the construction of the road may be delayed.

The chief director of PT Jasa Marga Bali Toll (JBT), Akhmad Tito Karim, confirmed on Sunday, August 26, 2012, that cumulative work on the toll way has reached 25%. Insisting, at the same time, that work was on schedule and on target.

He did say that some delays in the work were being occasioned by shallow seas that have made it difficult to operate a pontoon needed to install the piles or concrete pillars that will bear the suspended highway. Touching on the source of polemic now underway with environmentalists, Karim said the inability to operate the pontoon was being overcome through the “temporary” excavation of the mangrove forest to make way for construction access roads.

Work is also being slowed by the pattern of tides, requiring work to stop during low tides. However, when the westerly winds begin to blow from October to February, Karim anticipates can be a performed all day long without interruption.

He anticipates the construction of the toll way will achieve 75% completion rate by December 2012. Work should be completed by late April with full operation of the roadway to begin in June 2013.
