K1.27 billion earmarked for Port Morsby's road works

The Papua New Guinea Capital Port Moresby  is dramatically changing for the better with K1.27 billion earmarked for major road constructions. Update from the Port Moresby City Hall executives showed that the K879 million worth of roads have already been built and many more roads are being planned so that Papua New Guinea’s capital city could be on par with the rest of the world. One of the major roads is the four-lane Nine-Mile to Gerehu road which is already in use.

 The other four-lane road from the National Research Institute and Gerehu Roundabout connecting through to Kanudi and Hanuabada way is already in use  but has not been officially opened. Another four-lane road from Waigani traffic light to June Valley through the mountains to the Hanuabada by-pass is now under construction with many more extended outside roads and ring roads being constructed, others are ready for use while the rest are still almost completed. “We also want to educate the people here that this is the capital city of Papua New Guinea and we want to be on par with the rest of the world,”

City Hall has advised. Some of the roads completed and under construction include the Paga Ring Road, K28 million Seven Mile to Jackson Airport, K77 million Erima to Nine-Mile, K63 million Six-Mile to Seven-Mile Road, K86 million lot of roads at the Gordon Industrial area, K119 million Port Moresby Grammar to Six-Mile, and K160.2 million Six-Mile roundabout to Dogura-Bautama. One of the completed projects has been PNG’s first K160 million Kumul Flyover.
