Based on Bali Governor ​Circular Letter ​Number: 003.1/11367/PK/BKD, dated November 21, 2018, concerning National Holidays, National Leave and Bali Hindu Holiday Dispensation of 2019; hereby, it is informed to the general public, especially toll road users, that in light of the ​NYEPI DAY OF ÇAKA YEAR 1941, and in order to preserve cultural values and the local​ wisdom, Bali Mandara Toll Road will be temporarily closed for 32 hours, starting from Wednesday, March 6, 2019, at 11 p.m local time, and ​will be reopened by Friday, March 8, 2019, starting at 7 a.m local time.​​


President Director of PT Jasamarga Bali Tol, Enkky Sasono AW, at a press conference in Denpasar, on Monday​, March 4, 2019, explained that as in previous years, this was to honor the celebration of religious holidays of the Hindus in Bali. PT Jasamarga Bali Tol (JBT) has always respected local wisdom.


​Enkky expressed his gratitude to​ everyone for the support.  “In this opportunity, on behalf of the Board of Commissioners​, Directors, and​ Employees, PT Jasamarga Bali Tol would like to say: HAPPY NYEPI DAY OF ÇAKA YEAR 1941, MAY PEACE AND​ WELFARE ​WILL ALWAYS  BE WITH US,” he said.


Melasti Ceremony
Melasti is one of a series of religious ceremonies held before welcoming Nyepi Day.  The Pedungan Villagers annually performs​ it in Benoa Bay.

PT Jasamarga Bali Tol Operation & Maintenance General Manager Ahmad Izzi said that in order to support Melasti ceremonial ​rituals in Benoa Bay, the Toll Road patrol has begun to perform traffic managements from Pesanggaran crossroad ​to Benoa Harbor and Melasti ceremonial area.


Izzi assured that coordinations have been made with the police and Pecalang in establishing temporary contraflowed Benoa Harbor access roads, on Monday, March 4, 2019, from 6 a.m to 2 p.m. “So, access roads from Pertamina depot to the Harbor and Melasti ceremonial area are only accessible for Melasti ceremonial worshipers. Meanwhile the opposite direction, from the Harbor to Pesanggaran will be bidirectional, established in a contra flow system.”


He also said that besides stationing Patrol Officers on the Toll Road, PT JBT also posts Janitors around the area and standby Ambulance in front of Benoa Harbor road gas station.  He once again expressed his gratitude to the community that has made it easy to establish a well-generated traffic flow during the Melasti ceremony.
