(9/15/2013)

Governor Made Mangku Pastika confirmed that the three “megaprojects” improving Bali’s infrastructure are “generally ready” to support the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit 2013 (APEC) getting underway in early October.

Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said on Tuesday, September 10, 2013: “The three megaprojects in support of the international events are now more than 90% (complete). These projects are being raced to completion and are now in the final finishing stage.”
 
The Governor enumerated the three infrastructure projects: The toll way connecting Benoa-Ngurah Rai Airport-Nusa Dua; the renovation of the Ngurah Rai Airport; and the underpass constructed at Simpang Dewa Ruci.

Pastika emphasized that the new toll road was totally completed, including the successful running of roadworthiness tests. All that remains is for President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to officially open and name the road.

This is also the case with the underpass that has, in fact, been in operation for several months.

“For the enlargement of the Ngurah Rai Airport the project is in the finishing stage. Generally all the infrastructure projects are ready. All that remains is for a few small touches now being raced to completion,” explained the Governor.

Governor Denies Rumors

Mangku Pastika refuted rumors that the delay in the inauguration of the toll road and airport is due to non-completion of these projects.

“The postponement of the inauguration is because President SBY has a busy agenda with more pressing matters demanding his attentions. it is not because of delays in the projects’ completion,” the Governor insisted.

Pastika added that the contractor working on the enlargement of the Ngurah Rai Airport continues to work around the clock, with completion expected before the end of September.

Meanwhile, hotels and meeting venues located at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) and the Bali International Convention Center (BICC) at The Westin, Nusa Dua are in readiness to receive the world’s leaders in October.
