North Coast Road (NCR)

Wards combat law & order issues

Ward members, Ward Development Committees (WDCs) and the communities of Livuan-Reimber Local Level Government along the NCR Rd in Gazelle district have agreed to stand together and come up with solutions on minimising the rate of law-and-order issues.

In a combine law and order meeting held yesterday at the Rabaul District headquarters in Kurakakaul, 16 wards of Reimber and the nearby wards of Balanataman LLG in Rabaul district attended and raised their views and especially concerns on the recent string of PMV holdups.

Months later, bridge yet to be rebuilt

The bridge, which collapsed on Thursday, January 04th, is a link that serves many villagers from parts of Sumkar, Karkar and locals from East Sepik who travel via dinghies from Angoram to Bogia and other boat stops.

It is believed that the infrastructure was over 60 years old, and collapsed under excessive weight caused by a semi-trailer transporting an excavator.
