Bali's new toll road soon open

Bali’s toll road connecting Benoa Harbour, Ngurah Rai International Airport and Nusa Dua, is expected to be opened to the public at the end of August 2013.

This will happen after the regulatory agency, the Ministry of Public Works, has confirmed that the highway meets all technical requirements. The physical construction of the highway is complete. Now it is being checked to ensure it is up to specification. Hopefully, that process will finish at the end of August.

This inspection is essential. The road surface, signage, substations and patrol personnel must all be ready. The 12.7 kilometer long toll road will also accommodate motorcycles in a dedicated lane. The road, which passes over coastal waters for much of its length, is part of a package of infrastructure improvements designed initially to facilitate the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, which takes place in Nusa Dua in early October.
