Denser than usual Waigani traffic

Traffic is denser than usual at the north Waigani area of the nation’s capital.

Cars are currently lined up from the Institute of Public Administration roundabout to the University of Papua New Guinea, towards Gerehu.

Due to the 62nd UPNG graduation, traffic around the main campus area is moving at a snail’s pace.

Loop PNG was on site to witness impatient motorists loudly honk at pedestrians and street sellers that are crowding – and have spilled over – the narrow footpath at the UPNG bus stop.

Vendors have lined either sides of the footpath, from the main UPNG gate to the bus stop, with their food and drinks, making it difficult to walk through.

Apart from that, Governor Powes Parkop’s supporters are also driving around the city, celebrating his recent declaration.

Meanwhile, the second session of UPNG’s graduation ceremony is now underway. 

By the end of today, more than 1000 students would have graduated from the premier university of the Pacific Region.
