Major NCD road works due for completion

Major road infrastructure works in and around Port Moresby are due for completion before the APEC Leaders’ Summit in November.

The NCD City Manager Bernard Kipit says three out of six major road projects will be completed well before the end of August.

Ela Beach is the first major project to be completed on schedule, due to be opened to traffic by the end of July.

That will be followed by Stanley Esplanade in town and Independence Drive in Waigani, both due to be opened for traffic by the end of August.

The rehabilitation of the Freeway, Independence Drive and the Wards Road roundabouts will be completed by the end of October.

Meantime, Kipits says all projects are consistent with NCDC’s four year plan.
