April 28th, 2007

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono inaugurated five large-scale projects worth Rp395 billion rupiah in Bali on Saturday morning.

The inauguration ceremony for the projects which were financed with funds from Bali`s regional budget and the state budget, was centered in Nusa Penida, a tiny, separate island from Bali`s main land, some 80 km southeast of Denpasar.

Among the five large-scale projects included a Rp18.2 billion worth roro (roll-on-roll-off) ferry, Nusa Jaya Abadi, and the Nusa Penida port which was built at a cost of Rp50 billion.

Described as the highest bridge in ASEAN, the Tukad Bangkung bridge links the districts of Badung with Bangli while at the same time serving as connector for bypass roads to areas in east Bali.

The bridge is 71.14 meters high, 360 meters long and 9.6 meters wide, and can resist an earthquake measuring seven on the Richter scale.

The president also officiated the Prof. Dr Ida Bagus mantra road, which is 23 km long from Denpasar to the Gianyar-Klungkung districts.

The commissioning of the projects is one of the president`s agenda in his four-day working visit to the tourist resort island of Bali from April 26 to 29, 2007.
