Road Sealing

Temporary road access at Chinatown

The Lae City Authority said these will be temporary road access as work continues on the Butibam Road.

These two street roads are linked to Nathatches Street.

“Concreting work on one lane of the road should be completed by next week and work on the other lane will commence thereafter,” said LCA.

“And this election will not affect or stop any of the projects currently on foot.”

Work extends to other Eriku streets

Sealing will commence soon.

The Lae City Authority outlined that work on Lae Secondary and Oak Street roads, with the back of Raumai 18 Supermarket, will commence shortly as contract has already been awarded to R&Sons Construction Limited.

“The deteriorated Lae City roads need more than K250 million to fix all of them,” said the LCA.

“The yearly K3 million DSIP infrastructure component is insufficient but with the support of the national and provincial governments, Lae City has literally seen changes taking place in all sectors.

Government must fulfil commitment: Koiari LLG president

Koiari LLG President David Ogi said his people’s land and resource is needed for the expansion of Port Moresby city, and they must be seen as partners.    

He made the comments on Tuesday after a MOU signing with the Department of Works for the National Government to make funding available to work on the uncompleted 5km of road leading to Sirinumu Dam in Central Province.

“For the expansion of the city you will look at us for example Edevu, Brown River catchment is on Koiari land,” Ogi said.
