Malaysians run into massive bureaucracy for toll road construction DENPASAR - Initial approaches by a group of Malaysian investors to build a number of toll road projects in Bali may have come to a sudden halt due to regulatory and bureaucratic restrictions. Tempo Interaktif reports that the plan of Malaysia Datuk Khalid, the husband of singing star Siti Nurhaliza, to build and operate toll roads connecting Sanur beach - Tanjung Benoa and Ngurah Rai Airport - Nusa Dua has run afoul due to procedural rules governing such a project.

The Head of the Bali Planning Board, Wayan Subagiartha, told Tempo that the complicated procedural steps presented to the Malaysian investors during a recent technical meeting may have the effect of halting the road-building projects before it even begins."The main roadblocks are represented by the comlex permits needed to construct the highway and the requirement to change the function of a local mangrove forests," said Subagiartha.

He further explained that permission to build a toll road can only be granted by the National Toll Road Authority. Moreover, current regulations do not allow the direct appointment requested by the Malaysian group to build and operate the proposed roads; stipulating instead that such an appointment can only be accomplished through an open tender process. This procedure is a requirement of the National government and cannot be overridden or bypassed by the provincial government of Bali.

exactly right, yerun
I remember that SBY announced in the beginning of his presidency that he would initiate major infrastructure works, like toll roads all the way accross java, from merak to ketapang and onwards...years later, I'm still driving over the same shitty potholed roads, no improvement in sight!

Lets give sometime to the existing goverment in charge..Anyway SBY did a good job at the moment..To change a country is easy ..but to change the attitude of the people takes a longer time...Look at Malaysia from Agriculture, they tranform into Industrialist country and now moving to Information Technology..but their citizen is still not happy...even to a minimum charge to pay for a good road they are not happy...but they love the Nice Road..What actually they want is Free..So this is Attitude of The Malays Community... Emoticon: Yes!

Allthough the news story does not go into great detail, it does give 2 very important reasons why these major infra-works can/should not be rushed;
- Requirement for permits, in particular change of land-use. The mangroves the story refers to, are a very important part of Bali's environment and eco-life. If you want to build infra-structure you will have to make some very serious studies of the environmental and social impact (these all take time) and then obtain the required permits.
- The second part is about the relevant toll roads authority and open tendering. The most lucrative toll-roads will be tendered and constructed relatively easily (with the revenues flowing to Malaysia, or any other foreign country) , but leaving the rest of the country's infrastructure in the same poor condition. The authority must have a very strong hand in planning and managing the tendering and construction of new infrastructure, ensuring that what already exists does also get upgraded and maintained.

Indonesia and SBY still have along way to go, and it will take a very long time before all Indonesians will benifit from the change. I very much hope for Indonesia that it has learned from the past; when many contracts were given away on the basis of close relationships percentages going left and right, when environment and people were simply pushed aside because some very rich people had to make even more money.

Just look at the rest of the developed world, infrastructure takes a lot of time and patience.

Yes indeed.
Like the Netherlands .
It takes decades to build a road.

And the orang melayu expecting in a couple of months ?

Hokus pokus pilatus .
