(9/23/2013)

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono inaugurated the Benoa-Ngurah Rai Airport-Nusa Dua Toll Road on Monday, September 23, 2013, officially bestowing the name “Jalan Tol Bali Mandara” on the Island first toll road.

The President explained that the name Jalan Tol Bali Mandara is an acronym for: Bali Aman Damai Sejahtera.

  • Bali Maju – A dynamic Bali able to keep pace with the world, while, at the same time in harmony with traditional Balinese cultural values.
  • Bali Aman – Bali as a society that prizes social harmony and security.
  • Bali Damai – Bali as an island of peace and prosperity.
  • Bali yang Sejahtera – Bali as an island that provides for the welfare of all the people of Bali
The President said: “The Jalan Tol Bali Mandara will become a new tourism icon for Bali. I ask the people of Bali to care for this road well in order to increases the public welfare of the people of Bali.”

Speaking also at the inauguration, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika declared the new roadway as the “most beautiful toll road in the world.” He told the audience that Bali’s first toll road has the potential of becoming a destination in its own right on the island of Bali.

Pastika said that from its inception the toll way built over Benoa Bay was constructed in line with the concept of being strong, green and beautiful.

“This has become a new tourism object and, moreover, a new tourism icon in South Bali,” explained the Governor.

The governor told the audience attending the inauguration event that Bali Mandara has already planted 16,000 trees in the surrounding mangrove. These trees , he assured, will be cared for until they reach maturity. He insisted that the 12,7-kilometer long roadway has not disturbed Bali’s ecosystem, has not interfered with the activates of fishermen, and does not disturb flight traffic patterns at the nearby airport.

“From the toll way people can enjoy sunsets, the greenness of the mangrove, the passing aircraft above and the activities of fishermen shining in the dusk of evening,” boasted Governor Pastika.
