    Road-building in protected forest environment, theoretically do not be enabled, because worried will destroy area ecosystem and extend the happening of illegal logging. But one side, opening of access destined road to increase level live society around protected forest so that don't expand of forest very is needed, so that relation between area in quickening growth between economic growth and region of society around the road will be a mount. And this becomes one of the especial targets of Indonesia in Millennium Developments Gold (MDG'S) 2015. The overall objective of this study is to improve the application of ecological evaluation. In particular, the study focuses on one specific target of ecological evaluations, i.e., biodiversity conservation, and on one specific type of projects, i.e., road developments. The case study is represented by an infrastructure development within an Taman Nasional Kerinci Seblat (TNKS) located in South of Sumatera and Bengkulu Province on Indonesia : The Selangit - Napal Melintang - Lebong, road pass by quickly two province. The approach with three general guidelines that emerged from the analysis of the application of ecological evaluation to EIA (Ecological Impact Assessment). The first, called for the explicit reference to biodiversity. The second, of measurable indicators to assess ecological values, and the consequent separation between prediction and assessment of impacts. The third, evaluation of different project alternatives, and the improvement of methods for their comparison and ranking. All requirement, presentation, and data evaluation, conducted with using multi criteria evaluation in GIS technique. Two different alternative layouts were proposed for the Selangit-Napalmelintang-Lebong road project. The results of the analysis have indicated that Alternative 2 is by far the best-performing one, i.e., the one that causes the least impact on ecosystems. Alternative 2 have shorter traveled distance ( 36,5 Km), with minimum inclination, so that can be cheaper in its step building and manages to spare most of the relevant sites for biodiversity conservation.
