Koura Way Road Construction to be Completed in September

Another major road construction in Port Moresby, the Koura Way, is expected to be completed in September this year.

It is being built by the China Harbour Engineering Company at a cost of over K80million funded under the BSP loan.

NCD Governor, Powes Parkop, said the aim of the major road projects around the Nation’s Capital City is to ease traffic congestion and to promote a spread of businesses on the peripheries of the city.

Governor Parkop visited the construction site this afternoon to see that work progress has reached 60% and is on schedule for the completion date, October 21st 2017. The 4.5km four-lane road, known as the Koura Way, links Waigani Drive to the Hanuabada bypass. Initially the road was supposed to connect Waigani Drive to the Badihagwa High School, but plans changed.

250 energy saving lights will be installed to power up the road. Mr Parkop said the project has also provided a way for other services like water, sewerage, electricity and telecommunication services to be added to the area.

Governor Parkop said the project has generated about 400,000 cbm of fill materials; almost all of them are used for the Ela Beach redevelopment.

He said there are plans for another road to link Koura Way to Sir William Skate Highway to link at the Baruni Bypass. If that materialises, them the second phase of Ela Beach will be completed.
