Governor Parkop wants NCDC to take in-charge of city transport

Port Moresby Governor, Powes Parkop has called on  the National Land Transport Board to hand over the public transport responsibility to the National Capital District Commission. 

“There are too many authorities charged with managing transport and public transport in the City and this is causing so much inconvenience and problems to the traveling public and road users generally. We need only one transport authority in the City and that can only be NCDC,” the Governor stressed.
He further stated that NCDC has started the process with former Transport minister William Duma and he is waiting to discuss this further with the new Minister Nixon Duban.
“I hope we can progress this to some finality soon so we can design a public transport system that is reliable, efficient and affordable and also better manage traffic in the City,” he said.
By doing that, the Governor said this can cut down all the jams and bottle necks in the City caused by frequent and unnecessary road blocks and unsupervised congested areas.

Mr. Parkop said the National Land Transport Board which manages PMVs and public Transport in the City must come up with long term solutions to this recurring problem.
“Otherwise they should admit their incompetency and delegate the responsibility to the National Capital District Commission as the municipal authority in the City to manage public transport in the City,” said Governor Parkop.
