The ongoing construction of the Hotel Trans in North Kuta, Bali is fostering growing protests from people living and working in areas surrounding the project. Recent complaints center on the vibrations caused by heavy trucks and construction equipment and soil from the construction project defiling roadways.

As reported by Bisnis Bali, Nengah Sukanata, the temple guardian at nearby Pura Campuhan Batur Sakti, said that construction excavation is producing soil dragged onto the main road has made the pavement slippery and resulted in accidents.

Other complaints stem from construction work being carried out until late into the evening and heavy equipment used in the construction being placed on the temple. Because of these complaints, a letter of protest has been sent to the Regent of Badung.

A meeting was held on July 4, 2013 between Badung enforcement officials, the Environmental Agency, Zoning Board (Dinas Cipta Karya), the Tourism Office (Diparda), the office for Politics and Public Protection (Kesbang Pol Linmas), the District chief (Camat), community chief (Lurah) and the project director.

The head of the regency’s enforcement agency, Ketut Marta, confirmed the various complaints regarding the Hotel Trans Project. Problems, such as the depositing of soil on the main road, have been addressed and corrected.

Marta said explained that there is often a lack of good understanding between the investor in a given project and those charged with its construction. The construction team may not have a copy of the environmental impact study for the project eventually resulting in problems in the field.

The Badung enforcement agency promises to maintain close supervision of the Hotel Trans project to ensure no new grounds for complaints from the surrounding community occur.
