Encouraging Road Safety on Lae’s Highway

Morobe Mining Joint Ventures has installed three new road safety billboards along the Lae to Bulolo Highway.

The billboards are initiatives the company has taken to highlight the importance of road safety to road users and highway communities.


“It is important that we talk and discuss road safety not only within our company boundaries but also out at the communities,” said Morobe Mining’s General Manager for Sustainability & External Relations, David Wissink.


Two of the billboards put up are the work of two students, Thyzel Sesero from St Steven’s Primary and Ismael Bogan from Hompiri Primary, both schools located in Bulolo District. The two designs were selected during a drawing competition last year as part of Hidden Valley mine’s National Mining Safety Week program activities.


Mr Wissink said these billboards highlight issues such as reckless speeding and drink driving which are some of the major causes of road accidents in the country.


These billboards are located at Markham Bridge, Zenag Farm and the Bulolo-Wau road junction.
