Bali Looking at Building a Second Underpass at Simpang Ubung in North Denpasar

(7/14/2013) Following the opening of Bali’s first underpass in Kuta at Simpang Siur, the municipal government of Bali’s capital of Denpasar is now considering establishing an underpass at the intersections of Jalan Gatot Subroto and Jalan Cokroaminoto – otherwise known as Simpang Ubung.

Bali Post reports that the head of the Transportation Agency for Denpasar, I Gede Astika, confirmed the idea of an Ubung Underpass was under review.

At this point, the proposed underpass is being reviewed by a team of consultants from Bali’s Udayana University with city officials awaiting a formal presentation providing an overview of the project and the consulting team’s recommendation on whether to proceed or not.

Meanwhile, legislators are calling for changes in the flow and direction of traffic along certain sections of Jalan Gatot Subroto (Gatsu) in order to alleviate current traffic congestion problems.
