Moresby North-East begins rollout of plan

The Moresby North-East electorate has begun its rollout of the five year development plan.

The feeder road upgrading in the electorate includes the areas of Eight-Mile, ATS, Nine-Mile, Bushwara, Seven-Mile and Nine-Mile Morobe block through to the Wildlife feeder roads.

In collaboration with the National Capital District Commission physical planning and the engineering division, some of the roads are currently being upgraded to ensure Government services are accessible to those who are settling in those locations.

Member for Moresby North-East and Minister for Housing and Urban Development, John Kaupa, in a briefing with the media recently said transport infrastructure and facilities will pave way for positive economic and social growth.

The member mentioned that better road/transport infrastructure enables development in the community.

Kaupa says the target this year is to upgrade all existing feeder roads to reasonable standard for residents and commuters to use.

Meantime, work has already progressed and some completed at the Bomana road, Nine-Mile and ATS roads.

Kaupa said it is a pilot grading and proper sealing will be done once its feasibilities are properly accessed by the National Capital District Commission in consultation with his district administration. He also urged road users to take precautionary measures when using the new road.
