K37.2m road opens at Morata

It was built at a cost of K37.2 million.

City Manager Bernard Kipit says the Magani Crescent road will improve the heavy flow of traffic during peak hours.

The road connects Waigani from Gerehu via the late Sir William Skate highway.

Kipit also hinted that a four-lane road will be built from Pitpit Street to the highway, making Morata an investment and development hub.

This project was made possible through a Bank South Pacific loan, while the name of the road will be changed at a later date.

Kipit made the undertaking after he was officially sworn into office at City Hall today.

He took the oath of loyalty and the office of the City Manager before Senior Magistrate Tracey Ganaii in a small ceremony witnessed by the executive management and line managers of the Commission.

The City Manager said after the ceremony that the task will not be easy, managing over 700 employees from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
