Kokoda Trail blocked 2018

Kokoda Trail blocked off

The turnoff at Depo, leading to Ower’s Corner, has been blocked with empty drums and a banner announcing the closure.

The blockade, placed on Sunday (February 4), follows the lack of response from the Government in relation to grievances raised via an advertisement in one of the dailies last month (January 24, pp26).

In the advertisement, the Kokoda Track Landowners’ Task Force Committee said they have been “economically suppressed, oppressed and exploited under the Kokoda Initiative Program for the last 10 years”.
