Oro’s Haijo wet-crossing washed away again

A wet crossing cleared on Sunday for vehicles to cross over to Girua airport and Oro Bay wharf was washed away last night after continuous heavy rains.

Re-elected Member for Ijivitari David Arore says the wet crossing opened yesterday morning and by night it was washed away.

At this stage he says they will try to find excavator machines to pave the crossing again but it only means Popondetta town is cut off from Girua Airport and the Oro Bay wharf.

He says the immediate concern now is low supply of fuel as PNG Power has not refueled for one week.

Arore says the wet cross at Haijo was made three years ago with Ijivitari District Services Development Fund
