Northern Highway

Minister Awesa confused by highways in Oro

Ijivitari MP, David Arore during Question Time asked Works Minister Francis Awesa if the National Government has plans to fund the national roads in Oro.

Arore said the Northern and Kokoda Highways which starts from Oro Bay and ends at Afore needed road maintenances.  

He added that the country’s 2050 Vision states that Central and Northern Provinces must be connected by road because it is part of the missing 16 economic corridors. 

Arore also asked why no government funding had been allocated for Northern Highway in the National Budget since 2014.
