A team coordinated by the head of the Kuta, Bali police precinct, I Gede Putu Dedy Ujana, is now studying proposed major changes in traffic patterns in order to reduce traffic congestion.
Among the changes under consideration is turning Jalan Raya Kuta into a one-way street.
The Community Head (Lurah) of Kuta, I Wayan Daryana, confirmed to DenPost the possible change in Kuta traffic flows. Daryana said the change has been on the table for at least three months for consideration and input from sub-district officials, community associations and the military.
Daryana called for a phased introduction of any major change to the traffic pattern, allowing the public to become gradually familiar with the change and provide feedback to officials.
The proposed change would see the roadways from in front of Galael Supermarket until Jalan Raya Kuta become a one-way road traveling south.
This would help eliminate the traffic bottleneck in front of the busy Joger shop where customers often park on one side of the road and then attempt u-turns to return.
Dedi said. “I hope that if Jalan Raya Kuta becomes one-way, the traffic jams will end.”
It is not clear from the press reports if all of Jalan Raya Kuta commencing from the airport will become a one-way street or only a portion of that road.
More details as they become available.
