road warriors

 

Traffic in southern and central Bali is at breaking point; the current infrastructure can not handle the masses increase in vehicle traffic from holidaying Javanese, thumping trucks, tour buses and an every growing inbound tourist market.  The fabled beauty of the island and the welcoming nature of the Balinese will bring about its demise, as the tropical sun is shrouded with smog and the flow of traffic comes to a standstill.  A three hour trip from Seminyak to Uluwatu is not unheard of, and the days of nipping in to town to meet friends for lunch  from the Bukit are over.  Let's hope the offerings to the vehicle gods help with upgrading the road network.
