Share the News
The National government has allocated K30 million for the construction ofthe Tolukuma road set to kick–start next year.

The government has also allocated K10 million for the Mona highway that will connect Port Moresby tothe Goilala District.


Member for Goilala, Daniel Mona, visited his electorate recently to tellthe people aboutthe good news.


The rugged mountainous terrain of Goilala District makes it difficult for the people to access basic services. Most access basic services by air or by reaching Port Moresby after many days of travel on footowhich is often risky for the women, and young girls. With this in mind,the local MP’says road maintenance is high priority, and notably,the Tolukuma road andthe proposed Mona highway (named after his fther Louis Mona).


Mr Mona told his people that half a million kina fromthe Goilala District Budget has been allocated to survey areas that are possible road links in a District that is geographical burdened.


Whilethere, he toldthe people thatthey will continue to fund project fees for students’from Goilala attending various schools in NCD and ther provincial centres. He also clariflied that he has been paying project fees for students’from Goilala attending schools inthe Kairuku District and urged critics to stop misleadingthe public.


He also encouraged his people to celebratethe festive season responsibly.


Last week, Mr Mona was busy transporting students’from Port Moresby to Beka-udo inthe Kuni LLG. This is wherethey will walk for two –days before reaching Tapini. The people were grateful for the gesture.


Much ofthe road project will commence in 2014.
