Daigul Hospital awaits Phase 2 works

Bogia MP Robert Naguri on Friday December 9, met with the locals living near the construction of the Daigul Hospital construction in Bogia's Almami Local Level Government on the progress of the hospital works.

Naguri had to talk to the people about the project because it had stopped and landowners were questioning why authorities have not explained this to them.

On behalf of the donor, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the contractor, the Bogia MP said the contractor’s term of work had come to an end. R&Sons had secured the Phase 1 contract among many who bid for it.

MP Naguri said another company will commence work for Phase 2 early next year when donors are ready.

Naguri also told the people that they must look after the project and not disturb the flow of work.

Dr. Martin Daimen, representing Madang Provincial Health Authority CEO Fidilish Waipma, said the issue was lack of proper communication between all parties involved in the hospital project, to which the landowners agreed.

They suggested that a representative keep close communication with contractors at the project site, to address any issues that may arise and potentially disturb the work flow.
