Villagers living along the Kokoda track corridor are concerned that basic services like health care and education have not fully impacted the lives of the majority of the villagers.
A recent consultation with the Central Governor, Robert Agarobe, saw the villagers expressing their grievances.
The recent decision by the Government to review the Kokoda Track Authority is timely as many communities living along the Kokoda Track corridor have been neglected for many years.
The community members said only a few individuals are benefiting from Kokoda Track programs.
Central Province Governor, Robert Agarobe, visited the villagers to negotiate terms to reopen the track.
The Kokoda landowners agreed to open the track under the condition that Kokoda Track Authority and Kokoda Track programs be reviewed within the next three months.
The President of Koiari LLGC, David Ogi, said the Land owners have given the National Government until the end of April to review everything or face the closure of the track.
