New Toll Road For Bali
Longest Toll Road In Indonesia at 125km Long
Bali will soon be home to the longest toll road in Indonesia! Reported to stretch for 125km, the proposed elevated highway is said to connect three regencies in Bali, connecting the island’s north and south. The company that will build and run the highway, Waskita Bali Mandara, a subsidiary of Waskita Karya Group, states that Bali is an investment priority for the group.
Bali’s governor, Made Mangku Pastika said that this is a positive development for Bali and the new toll road will play a pivotal role in equitable distribution for the benefits of development to the island. The new toll road will also be the main access to the proposed new airport in North Bali.
The proposed toll road will connect the following areas within Bali and will be build gradually in four phases:
- Kuta-Canggu-Tanah Lot-Soka = 28 km
- Soka- Pekuatan = 25.1 km
- Pekuatan-Gilimanuk = 54.4 km
- Pekuatan-Lovina = 46.7 km
When completed, the new road will be longer than the now 116km Cipali told road that is currently the longest toll road in Indonesia. To date, there is no confirmed timeline as to when construction is set to begin.
