Their fear arose from last Friday’s flooding of the central business district (CBD) in the heart of Madang town.
Heavy downpour experienced on Thursday resulted in craters, resembling little pools, appearing along recently-sealed roads in town. This was a definite eyesore for residents.
With the recent wet season, the problem is likely to get worse.
The situation has prompted the chairman of the Madang Town Landowners Association, Talad Lukas, to call on relevant authorities to seriously find a lasting solution to the problem.
