• North Bali Airport, Commission V DPR RI Asks for Construction Site Assurance


    Member of House of Representatives Commission V Bambang Haryo asked the Ministry of Transportation (Kemenhub) to immediately issue the location of the North Bali Airport because of the natural factor, the island economy will be lifted if the airport is built soon.

    “There are three fault in Java Bali, and one of the largest is in the south of Bali. So at that time I proposed to Kemenhub and Angkasa Pura I to build an airport in the north planned in Buleleng, “Bambang said in a written statement in Jakarta on Tuesday (3/4/2018).

    Bambang disagreed with Ngurah Rai Airport’s enlargement plan because in the south of Bali, there is an Asia-Australia fault line that at times destabilizes and damages airport facilities and infrastructure.

    According to Bambang, the construction of the airport in north Bali is very potential, firstly, the northern region is safer than the earthquake rather than the south because it is protected Gunung Agung.

    “Secondly, if an eruption occurs, it is usually strongly influenced by wind direction, east to south or west to north,” he said.

    According to him, with two airports, one of them can be an alternative if there is eruption of Mount Agung because the airport in Bali should always be awake because most tourists come from abroad, and Bali is often a place of international events.

    Third, according to him, traffic in the south of Bali is too crowded, so he urged, the construction of the North Bali Airport will be realized to balance the development of south and north Bali. Based on existing data, there are 41 thousand poor families in northern Bali.

    “Kemenhub should have determined the blockers, because this is already planned from President Soeharto. My message to the Minister of Transportation or Jokowi Cabinet, do not do what is not a priority, “he said.

    Bambang, who is also a politician of the Gerindra Party, considers that the construction of the North Bali Airport can be integrated with a port closely related to logistics so that trucks can be diverted to the north and the volume of roads in southern Bali can decompose.

    Previously, the Ministry of Transportation stated that the plan to build a new airport in north Bali will be done after Ngurah Rai Airport in southern Bali reaches the highest passenger capacity or is already full.

    Director General of Civil Aviation at the Ministry of Transportation Agus Santoso at Kemaritiman Ministry of Transportation in Jakarta, said the growth of passengers in Bali continues to increase as the national tourism industry grows.

    “This year alone there are 21 million passengers. Add a big plus year, could reach 30-31 million passengers. This should be managed, “he said.

    Agus said with the number of passengers reaching 21 million passengers, Ngurah Rai Airport maximum can only accommodate 30-35 million passengers only. That, too, he said, should be accompanied by a better arrangement. (IMN / Suara.com)
