A village road is being sealed and proper footpaths built in preparation for a wharf to be build in Morobe’s Sipaia village.
The Wagang wharf is expected to support three tuna fish canneries in the Malahang area.
The road is a positive investment when the country’s economy is struggling.
Footpaths have been built and the road has been graded, which is phase one of the works.
The road was officially opened by the Morobe Governor, Kelly Naru in May of this year. K5 million was paid to a Lae-based construction company to do the job.
When the Provincial Executive Council allocated the money, Morobe Province was in a cash flow problem and surviving on its internal revenue.
The people are watching the work done on the road and with elections in 2017, they’re looking to see if promises are kept. The K5 million paid by the Provincial Government for work to begin was an installment.
When infrastructure like this one is being built when the country’s economy is struggling, it renews confidence that Papua New Guinea is still a growing economy. This is while Papua New Guinea is still being ranked one of the most corrupt countries in the world.
