Bali officials have finally started installed the wiring systems on the main streets of Ubud under the ground.
The Regent of Gianyar District, Made Mahayastra confirmed that one of the infrastructure projects that was planned over 10 years ago has been finally executed during his term. “I’m so glad that we could finally execute the project to install the wiring system for our tourism area in Ubud under the ground as it has been planned since Cok Ace’s term over 10 years ago. This will help clear our skies from those messy wiring systems.” Mahayastra said on Monday (13/9).
Mahayastra explained that this project was fully funded by the central government through the National Economic Recovery (PEN) program to support Gianyar’s economic activity during Covid-19 pandemic. “The central government has granted almost USD 2 million (IDR 28 billion) to support this project.” Mahayastra added. Prior to this project, many of the local’s activities such as religious and funeral ceremonies were interrupted due to the unorganized wiring installation.
He also said that the installation is expected to finish within 2 months. “Our workers have been planting about 7 to 10 meters of cables each day, so this project is expected to finish in 2 months. And we’re optimistic that Ubud will always be the best tourist destination for both domestic and international tourists, especially with our cultural tourism.” Mahayastra concluded. Apart from the electricity cable, officials also replaced the telephone’s wiring under the ground as well as fixing the sidewalks around the area.
