Damaged Bulolo bridge fixed

The Bulolo Highway in Morobe Province is now open to the public.

The section of the bridge at Warabung, at the border of Huon Gulf and Bulolo Electorate, has finally been replaced.

Continuous rain swept away a section of the Warabung Bridge more than a week ago, where youths capitalised on the situation by charging travelers toll for passing through.

However, Morobe Governor Kelly Naru visited the area and dished out K10,000 to the youths, asking them to refrain from collecting money from the public.

Private contractor Classic Engineering moved in, with support from the Works Department, and fixed the bridge.

The bridge is now accessible.
