Nuku District

Vehicles To Address Transport Woes

The two communities in Nuku, Yankol and Palai are the recipients of these vehicles. This was announced during the Asini Bridge commissioning in Nuku (Nigil/Yarasi of Yankok) recently.

The two Local Level Government areas, Yankok and Palai are the recipients of these vehicles. Governor Wouwou told those gathered that vehicles were bought to assist especially mothers to bring their produce to market and other errands for self-sustenance.

18 Years Of Wet Crossing Put To Rest

The commissioning of the Asini Bridge last Saturday, 12th of March is a big relief for the people of Yankok. The approximate construction cost was K3 million with a loading capacity of 44 tonnes, which can cater for huge machines, including excavators and graders among others. 

This means they now do not have to carry the sick on stretches to fight the river tide for medical attention and children do not have to miss classes due to flood. They can also now bring loads of local produce to market among many other spin-off benefits from this bridge.
