Bali Officials Wrangle Over Details On When to Repave Main Roadway Torn Up to Install New Water Pipes

NusaBali reports an embarrassing bureaucratic struggle now taking place between the Bali Water Board (PDAM-Denpasar) and the provincial public works department (PU-Bali).

Hundreds of meters of pavement on Bali’s main protocol street on Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai in Sanur have been torn up by the provincial public works department to permit the laying of new water pipes. The job completed, public works teams simply returned the soil to the ditches leaving dangerous strips of unpaved and oftentimes treacherous large sections of roadways used by thousands of vehicles every day.

Unsightly, the former ditches provide an unsure footing for passing cars and a real hazard for motorcyclists. One shop owner in Sanur told NusaBali: “It's unrepaired, just like a road in the village. It's been like this for a long time. But it looks like they (the officials) will just leave it be.”

Affected are large stretches of the northbound lane of the Ngurah Rai Bypass in Sanur covering hundreds of meters in either direction near the Jalan Tirtanadi intersection.

The chief of the PDAM for Denpasar explains that the installation of the water pipes was paid for by the State Budget and was conducted by the Public Works  Department (PU) of the province. According to plan, the Public Works officials say the job of restoring the roadway is now the responsibility of the PDAM.

The Water Board does not deny responsibility for repaving the role, but insists that before the paving can start, the provincial Public Works Department must first conduct “sand cone tests” to determine the density of underlying soil.

Passing the buck, the chief of PDAM-Denpasar, Putu Gede Mahaputra, told the press: “Go ask the workers or those in charge of this project The provincial works department of the province knows better.”
