Denpasar, Bali (ANTARA) – The Bali provincial government will build a telecommunication infrastructure, the Turyapada Tower KBS 6.0 Kerthi Bali, this year in Pegayaman Village, Buleleng District.
“Turyapada Tower has the main function to optimize digital television broadcasts,” Bali Governor Wayan Koster said in a written statement in Denpasar on Sunday.
Turyapada Tower which will be 115 m high is planned to be built in Pegayaman Village of Buleleng District at an altitude of 1,521 m above sea level. Thus, in total, Turyapada Tower will be 1,636 m high.
Earlier, when delivering the year-end speech Koster pointed out that the tower’s coverage will reach 80 percent of the districts of Buleleng, Jembrana, and Karangasem.
He explained, the tower is multifunctional and integrated into a tourism area which will be a new economic development center in the northern Bali area.
“This is in order to balance the centers of economic growth in the north, south, east, and west Bali region,” the governor added.

Furthermore, in accelerating the priority program implementation in Bali Province, especially in indigenous or customary villages, the Bali administration has launched the program of Kerthi Bali Welfare Village Team.
“The success of this program largely hinges on the active support of village officials and customary leaders as well as their teams,” he stated.
In realizing the program, the Bali provincial government imposed a new policy such as granting incentives of Rp1.5 million for village officials and Rp1 million for indigenous or customary leaders per month.
Koster added, a huge challenge emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic awaits in 2022, especially in the sectors of tourism and economy.
“This condition certainly requires mental readiness and a strong commitment based on the Balinese people’s sincerity,” he said.
