The Wapenamanda Airport will soon see changes after the National Airports Corporation and nationally-owned construction company, Cameron Constructions, signed a contract that will enable constructions to start fencing the airport.
The fencing project is an outstanding issue in the province and Governor Peter Ipatas says although it has taken a long time for the provincial government and NAC to look into the matter, developMen’s will now take place.
Construction will start, now that the official signing of the fencing project has been conducted.
Enga Governor Peter Ipatas said the project was a long time coming; however, he commended the people of Enga for making sure that flights to the province had not been cancelled.
The project is said to be at K5.4 million and will take 26 weeks to complete.
The Enga provincial government committed K5 million with the National Airports Corporation, adding K400, 000 to the project.
Acting Managing Director/CEO of NAC, Joseph Tupiri, said this is the first time for a provincial government to partner with NAC for such a project.
Cameron Constructions’ Board Director Michael Yai-pupu said the company is set to provide the highest standard for NAC and the people of Enga and assured the Governor and NAC that construction will commence as soon as possible.
