Jalan Legian Gets a Facelift

legianlWell, kind off! Recently sections of Jalan Legian in Kuta are being repaired and it truly needed it. The constant heavy traffic had made the road look more akin to asphalt Swiss cheese with numerous pot-holes and sections of the road deteriorating in general.

When I went down for breakfast this morning there were several diligent (?) workers laying new asphalt on the road near the pavements between Poppies 1 and Poppies 2 ensuring the traffic would come to a practical standstill.

Over the years I have seen this section of road deteriorate and it was indeed good to see it being repaired. At least the suspensions of all those vehicles that travel along this stretch of Jalan Legian daily will be grateful.





poppiesrThe one section of road that is badly in need of urgent repair is Poppies Lane 2. It wouldn’t be that inconvenient to close the road off to traffic for a few days. For those wanting quick access to Jalan Legian via Poppies Lane 2, diverting the traffic to Jalan Melasti for access to Jalan Legian whilst the repairs are in process would be no big deal.


Perhaps if the Government in Jakarta grants Bali their fair share of the VOA then perhaps more roads would be repaired. Yeah, I know, dream on!

    Seems the work safety standards have improved with the Flouro vests and hard hats and enclosed shoes.
