Prime Minister, Peter O&rsquO’Neill visited Angau and the Tidal basin yesterday, to check the progress of two expensive infrastructure developments.
Construction is underway at the Angau hospital, while the Lae Tidal basin is two months ahead of schedule.
The prime minister spent about eight hours in Lae yesterday, most of which was spent at the Lae Tidal Basin with State Investment minister, Ben Micah, inspecting the tidal basin constructed by China Railways International.
The tidal basin will support vessels coming into Lae with 5000 containers. These infrastructure developments will pave the way for more foreign investments into Lae City.
The extension of the wharf will support upcoming infrastructure projects that include the reconstruction of the Nadzab airport, the Lae-Nadzab Highway, Wafi-Golpu Project, the LNG Project in Hides and other mines in the Highlands.
He later visited Angau hospital to see work done by Hornibrooks NGI on the redevelopment of the hospital.
The redevelopment comes after the hospital was in a state of disrepair for many years.
The last board and management were replaced and more funding has been allocated for the hospital to be redeveloped.
The Asylum seeker deal between Australia and Papua New Guinea included the redevelopment of Angau, but it’s understood that the recent improvements to Angau has been funded by the National Government.
