Nadzab Airport Redevelopment Project

Nadzab redevelopment nears completion

The last two percent involve the transition phase, said National Airports Corporation Limited project director, Tom Nou, while representing the Acting MD and CEO, Joseph Tupiri, during the signing of the training MoU with Lae’s National Polytechnic Institute.

“There is still work going on in the terminal building,” Nou said.

“Our contractual target completion is end of April. At the moment we are still proceeding with the final phase of the project.”

All airports to be modernised: PM

Prime Minister James Marape outlined the Government’s vision during the Nadzab redevelopment project groundbreaking.

Just like Mt Hagen’s Kagamuga Airport and Girua Airport in Northern Province, the government aims to upgrade every airport in the country.

Speaking at the Nadzab redevelopment groundbreaking, PM Marape says this is to ensure they complement the wealth and economic growth envisaged for this country.

Nadzab LOs call for active participation in project

Thursday’s groundbreaking in Morobe Province was an opportunity for them to voice their concerns to the Prime Minister and his delegation.

Jobbie Ferea is the chairman of the nine clans of Gabsongkec Village in Wampar LLG, where the Nadzab Airport is.

He said though the airport services the country’s second largest city, dubbed as PNG’s industrial hub, they have no hospitals, no proper running water, they need electricity and quality infrastructure.
