Secretary Wereh: Nature delaying work for WNB Bridges

By Jack Lapauve Jr – EM TV News, Port Moresby

Works Secretary David Wereh, says the building of permanent bridges in Bialla in West New Britian, will await favorable weather conditions. Mr Wereh said not much can be done but to await for better weather conditions for work to begin.

Secretary Wereh said little progress has been made in assembling building materials, as weather conditions have delayed the commencement of work. Wereh said the economy of WNB was severely affected after and during the floods, and the department and other stakeholders are working to restore services with permanent bridges for Tiaru and Ivule.

The public in Bialla has been using a wet crossing to access services in Kimbe town. Meanwhile the Ko Bridge along the Hoskins-Kimbe road will be replaced with a tendering process for contracts, already in place.

Secretary Were added that once formal tender process is completed,, work should commence late this month(June) or next month.

The Works and Implementation Secretary was responding to questions over the progress of work carried out by the department in West New Britain, after floods swept through the province earlier this year.
