(1/7/2018) reports that the expansion of the apron area on the western approach to the sole runway at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport is moving ahead despite concerns and objections expressed by communities bordering the airport. 

The general manager of the airport authority, Yanus Suparayogi, said the apron expansion project would cost Rp. 2.2 trillion and is needed to accommodate an onslaught of VIP delegations traveling to Bali to attend the International Monetary Fund-World Bank Summit in October 2018. 
Yanus explained that the expanded apron would be built on reclaimed land providing a paved space measuring 500 x 900 meters. He confirmed that the tendering process for the project is already underway. 
Leaders from Balinese communities along Jimbaran and Kuta Beach have asked that the apron project be built on suspension pilings in order to minimize the possibility of beach erosion north and south of the airport along Bali’s southwest shoreline. 
In response, Yanus, said the decision to reclaim land instead of a suspension systems was made after reviewing a number of factors. The idea of installing pillars for a suspension pillars was eventually rejected because the use of pile drivers would require the airport to suspend flight operations for 12 hours per day during the construction period. By using a reclamation method of construction, the airport can continue to operate without interruptions by using tugboats to reclaim the necessary land.
