(9/30/2012)

The contractors building the toll road connecting Benoa – Ngurah Rai Airport – Nusa Dua (JDP) have publicly affirmed that they will repair any damage caused to the mangrove forest by the project.

The contractors making the pledge are PT Wijaya Karya, PT Adhi Karya and PT Hutama Karya.

Beritabali.com reports the project chief of Hutama Karya, Nyoman Sujaya, confirmed the rehabilitation of the mangrove forest will be undertaken in phases. Moreover, the rehabilitation will not be based merely on the planting of new trees but at revitalizing the entire mangrove forest affected by the JDP construction.

“Our study shows that we have sacrificed 66,000 trees in building the JDP. We will be replacing those trees at a ration of 2:1 – all to be planted before the new toll road begins operating. Our target is life, not just planting,” explained Sujaya on September 27, 2012.

Sujaya added that the limestone used to build the temporary access roads needed to erect the supporting pillars of the elevated highway will be removed by the May 2013.

Sujaya admitted that the excavation using limestone has caused pollution of the surrounding water, but insists the momentary disturbance of the water quality has had minimal effect on the ecosystem. The cloudiness of the water, he says, is only temporary and caused by the excavation for the temporary roads.
