Bali’s new 12.7-kilometer long toll way scheduled to open in mid-July 2013 will be equipped with wind speed monitoring equipment.
The monitor have been installed to allow PT Jasa Marga Bali Tol, the roadway’s operators, to close the road to vehicular traffic whenever winds are determined to be a threat to safety.
The CEO of PT Jasa Marga Bali Tol, Akhmad Tito Karim, told Seputarbali.com that the main use of the wind-speed detectors would be to protect motorcyclists who could be at risk in a high wind situation.
“We will selectively open and close the road, primarily for motorcycle riders. The motorcycle lanes are completely separated from the main road. The width of each motorcycle land is 3.2 meters. We will also deploy patrols on the road,” said Tito.
