Gilimanuk-Mengwi Toll Groundbreaking by Minister of Public Works and Public Housing
The groundbreaking done by the Minister of Public Works and Public Housing, M. Basoeki Hadimoeljono on Saturday (09/10) was warmly welcomed by local residents. This inauguration marks the start of the construction of the toll road that will connect Gilimanuk-Mengwi which is expected to be completed in 2028. This toll road itself will cross 3 regencies in Bali, namely Jembrana, Tabanan, and Badung Regencies.
The Gilimanuk-Mengwi Toll Road has a length of about 96.84km and this toll road will be divided into 3 sections. The first section is the 53.6 km lane from Gilimanuk-Pekutatan, the next section is the 24.3 km lane from Pekutatan-Soka, and the last section is the 18.9 km lane from Soka-Mengwi.
Considering that the development of this project requires a lot of lands, the Minister reminded the importance of paying attention to several things such as avoiding holy places, Balinese local wisdom, etc. “I will give a decree to the Governor as the supervisor of this toll road because he is here every day, so he can maintain the quality and aesthetics of this toll road,” Basuki said as quoted from the BPJT website, Monday (12/9). /2022).
The construction of this toll road is one of the main agendas of development projects in Bali. The head of the BPJT stated that it is hoped that this construction can be completed quickly so that the Balinese people can feel the benefits of this toll road construction more quickly before the construction target is completed.
In addition to being useful for the driver’s trip from Gilimanuk to Mengwi, this toll road is expected to be an option for people who previously wanted to travel around Bali, considering that there are many tourist locations scattered along the island of Bali and sometimes what becomes a barrier for tourists coming to Bali is the distance from one location to another.
