Pacific Games Infrastructure Near Completion

Parliament was today told that ninety per cent of 2015 Pacific Games Infrastructure were 50 per cent complete, with the first building in the games village at UPNG expected to be open at the end of July this year.


Sports Minister Justin Tkatchenko is confident of delivering all games infrastructure in time for the 2015 games. He also described the SP Hunters, as a success story for PNG.


With almost 13 months to go before the 2015 Pacific Games, Sports Minister, Justin Tkatchenko said preparations on infrastructure development were well on target.


He said work on the Games village at the University of PNG, has been carried out 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the first building should be ready soon. He spoke of how the village and other infrastructure will benefit the country in the long run.


He said the Taurama Aquatic Centre, Sir John Guise Stadium, the Llyod Robson Oval, and the Hubert Murray Stadium were also on target, and expected to be completed in the first quarter of next year.


He also announced that the Central Supplies Tender Board met last night and recommended three contractors to work on the Rita Flynn tennis Courts and the Bisini Sports field, and he will bring this to NEC next week for the final approval.


On the Sp Hunters participation in the Queensland Cup, Minister Tkatchenko said they were doing extremely well but also spelt out the importance of these players to live by the Code of Conduct.


He said the participation of this team in the Queensland Cup has also contributed to tourism activities both in PNG and Australia, and thanked the Prime Minsiter for his support.
