Lae Rugby League Oval

Lae land under probe

The popular recreational area outside the Lae Rugby League Oval has been fenced off by Y&C Enterprise for the construction of a service station.

It was section 67, lot 20, that was awarded to Tracy Nen on September 2nd, 2021, by the Lae National Court. However, that area covers the access road from the rugby oval to the main road.

On top of that, the Morobe provincial building board granted the leaseholders a permit to build a service station on that recreational area.

Lae residents question land acquisition

Kevin Chan of Y&C Enterprise Ltd was caught off guard yesterday when Lae residents; Tracy Terence, Bak Robert and Lemek Luke, confronted him and questioned him on how he had acquired a portion of land at the Lae Rugby League grounds along Markham Road.
