Bali Airport Waiting for Final Permit to Allow Reclamation at Western End of Runway to Commence
Angkasa Pura I (AP-l), the management authority for Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, is waiting for a final permit as they are poised to commence reclamation over the seabed at the western end of the Airport’s runway.

As reported by NusaBali, AP-l has successfully obtained a location permit (izin lokasi) and local environment permit (izin lingkunan) as they prepare to reclaim land for an expansion of apron area to accommodate parking by the large number of VIP flights expected to land in Bali during the IMF-World Bank Conference in October 2018.

The reclamation covering an initial 6-hectare area is poised to get fully underway once the final permit is in hand. AP l Spokesman, Arie Ahsanurrohim, announced that of the total 48-hectares scheduled for reclamation only 6-hectares is deemed a top priority in order to be ready for the IMF-World Bank Conference.

Speaking on April 30, 2018, Arie said that all the design aspects for the proposed reclamation are in hand and the next stage of creating access to the project area is the next step, pending the issuance of the final execution permit.

Preparatory work has commenced on enlarging the eastern apron of the Airport and the construction of a new VVIP Terminal.

In socializing the proposed reclamation project to the surrounding communities, AP l has granted concessions to the traditional villages of Tuban and Kelan that include pledges and guarantees not to disturb or impede access to places of worship, and not to sacrifice lands owned by the villagers.
