Middle Ramu Roads Soon To See Changes

The people of Middle Ramu District in the Madang Province, will soon see changes to their rural road networks.

Accessibility to the district has been tough over the years, with poor roads. Their local member has partnered with the Department of Works to improve that.

 

This afternoon, Middle Ramu MP, Tommy Tomscoll, presented a cheque of K3.8 million to the Works Department to assist in this vital road infrastructure.

 

PNG road networks make up 80 percent of the freight and passenger movement. However, many of these road networks in rural Papua New Guinea are in poor condition.

 

This has always been a major concern for the people, who continue to demand that their leaders in Parliament improve this vital infrastructure.

 

Member for Middle Ramu, Tommy Tomscoll, has prioritized roads as his key development agenda. He has partnered with the Department of Works to improve roads in his district. The funding of K3.8 million from his district from last year’s DSIP will be used for the road project.

 

The 40km road will begin from Umerum to Ramu River. It is anticipated that the project will alleviate accessibility problems faced by two thirds of his people.

 

Works Minister, Francis Awesa while giving an insight on the position the of Department of Works regarding the project said, PTB will be revived to drive the government’s development plans with the focus on rural roads.
