Kiunga-Tabubil Highway

MP Hails Gov’t Assistance

The 135km highway had been neglected for the past 35 years and remains unsealed. He said Western Province, especially the North Fly district hosts the giant Ok Tedi Mine and it is fitting that OTML gives back to the people by sealing the road.

“Ok Tedi have been feeding the government coffers since its operational years and the people of Western were not complaining. Such decision by the current Government to seal this road is welcoming for our people back at home,” said Mr Donald.

The agreement was signed today in Port Moresby between OTML and contractor, China Railway Construction Engineering Group Co. Limited for Phase One of the project. 

Funded under the Government’s Infrastructure Tax Credit Scheme (ITCS) program, the project will be undertaken in three phases, with Phase One to start in February, this will include the upgrade and sealing of the highway starting at Kilometre-3 near Kiunga town. 
Phases 2 and 3 will follow suit once further funding is available through the ITCS.
