Congestion lately getting worse. Not only cause loss of time, but on the other hand would make a bored and disappointed tourists walk in the area of Nusa Dua and Benoa.
Congestion problems in the area of the airport I have experienced too often, even traffic jams occur almost every day from morning till night. There is no road connecting the airport and Benoa unless we are willing to turn toward the north through the city of Denpasar to tens of kilometers. And even then no guarantee we will also be free from congestion.
road construction, is designed to reduce the current congestion often occurs on the path to the Nusa Dua Denpasar. In addition to connecting Denpasar to Nusa Dua, the toll road will facilitate access to Ngurah Rai of the area.
The motorway has a length of about 12 kilometers and is built on the sea. To that end, the construction was needed about 18,000 concrete piles along the 18 meter and 60 centimeters in diameter. Highway construction is targeted for completion in May 2013. The choice of highway construction on the sea is because in addition to cope with congestion also has the potential to earn income. The road will be operated as toll roads in other areas in Indonesia, the system of pay that applied for its users.
Highway construction plans have been considered carefully by the Ministry of Public Works, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Ministry of Interior, Bali Province, Denpasar City Government, County delinquent, and leaders / community leaders Bali, including the toll road plan is above the sea??, not above the mangrove forests, mangrove forests are affected by the toll road to a minimum endeavored to preserve the mangrove conservation area. Attempts were not exposed to public land (using land that is owned by the government), Still keep the harmony that has been formed / happening in the local community. Do not move / change the locations of places of worship or places consecrated as temples. It has been agreed with management of mangrove forests to make the process of collaboration in the management of mangrove forests.
The toll road was impassable for automobiles and motorcycles. For cars will be charged a rate of Rp 10,000 and Rp 4,000 motorcycles.
Later this highway will be the most beautiful and iconic highway Bali.
This requires the construction of the highway fund of Rp 2.490.000.000.000 from a consortium comprising state-owned PT Jasa Marga Tbk, PT Pelindo III, PT Angkasa Pura I, PT Bali Tourism Development, PT Wijaya Karya Tbk, PT Adhi Karya Tbk, and PT Hutama Karya.
