Upgraded Kegesuglo airstrip to service Mt Wilhelm

A memorandum of understanding was signed between Rural Airstrip Agencies and Kundiawa Gembogl Administration to re-develop Kegesuglo airstrip in Kundiawa Gembogl district.

The re-development of the Kegesuglo airstrip will give accessibility to both local and international tourists to visit Mt Wilhelm.

Chief executive officer of Rural Airstrip Agencies John Bromley signed the MOU with Kundiawa Gembogl Administration, promising the maintenance work to be carried out before the end of the year.

Bromley said the upgrading will not only provide services to visitors but also help villagers transport their fresh produce to the market.

He said the re-development of the airstrip is in partnership with Civil Aviation, National Planning and the other relevant Government stakeholders including, Simbu Provincial Government and Kundiawa Gembogl district Administration and landowners.

Also the proposed Hydro Power plant will be rolling out soon. It will complement the tourism sector of the district.
