Tourism operators in Lovina, North Bali are calling on the government to quickly complete the ongoing construction of sidewalks and walkways leading to the beach, saying the building activities are interfering with tourist activities at the popular beachside resort.
A restaurant operator in Lovina said, “The open gutters are producing unsavory odors that are not conducive to people dining at the restaurant.” He told of at least three customers who had fallen into open sewers at the construction zone for the sidewalks. Matters are being made worse particularly after dark, he complained, by the lack of warning signs and safety barricades. Separately, the head of the Public Works confirmed through his office that the construction of drains and sidewalks in Lovina would take a total of 120 days to complete. The value of the Public Works contract for the new walkways is put at Rp. 1.1 billion. The project commenced on July 31, 2015 and is scheduled for completion on November 27, 2015.
