K66 million AID for Bulolo Highway

He said this in Parliament yesterday, after Morobe Governor and Deputy PANGU Pati leader, Ginson Saonu, questioned why work was being delayed.

The Prime Minister assured Governor Saonu and the people of Morobe that the K66 million given by the Australian Government was intact.

PM Marape said the Bulolo Highway was badly damaged and would cost more than the K66 million, hence, government will add another K50 million to carry out the work.

Damaged Bulolo bridge fixed

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.
