By Vasinatta Yama – EM TV News,  Mt Hagen Since attaining office after the 2017 National Election, Tambul-Nebilyer MP, Win Bakri Daki and his District Development Authority have been working tirelessly, to build roads and bridges to connect all the missing links in the electorate. Bakri was recently in Gia, in the lower Kagul area bordering the mountains of Ialibu in the Southern Highlands Province, where their vital needs are roads and bridges. The people of Gia and Koroka at the Lower Kagul area in Tambul Nebilyer Electorate of Western Highlands Province are just 4 kilometers apart.  But without a road, they have remained separated for as long as they can remember. They live in the western portion of the Western Highlands Province, bordering the Ialibu and Imbongu electorates of Southern Highlands. These people don’t have easy access to basic services. They are separated by the Kagul River, and the only footbridge there was built during the independence, is their lifeline to the outside world. But this will now be a thing of the past. A K1.2 million was made available through the electorate’s District Services Improvement Program Funds to build the 4.5 km stretch of road from Gia to Koroka to connect this missing link. Road works have already started, and the footbridge will be replaced with a bailey bridge. Tambul-Nebilyer District Development Authority through their MP’s vision, ‘Time for Change’, is to build roads and infrastructures to connect all the missing links in the electorate. A missing link which will soon be open for use is the 16.4 km’s stretch of road from Mt Kuta in the Hagen Open Electorate to Kunia, in the Lower Nebilyer area of Tambul-Nebilyer. The Kunia road will then connect another three big villages in the lower Nebilyer area. While another K3 million was also awarded to the Department of Works to build a new bridge at the start of the mighty Kagul River, that will connect more than five thousand people.]]>
