The transformation of Kavieng Town roads continues following the first ever four (4) lanes in the province from Kavieng Airport to Court House formally known as Stanfield Street but renamed Kavavu Avenue in honour of one of NIP’s Premiers, Hon. Demas Kavavu.
Work now on five other Kavieng Town streets including Tanga street, Wharf road, Kulangit Road, Omo Road, Tabar Terrace and crossing, Sivaro and including Lemus Street.
The Third Phase contract under the National Government’s Public Investment Program (PIP) last year includes the upgrading and sealing of the Court House Road and Rawal Suburb Roads which is nearing completion.
Under PIP program again this year, 2021, the National Works Minister has allocated another K4 million to complete Phase Four.
Feeder residential roads within Kavieng will also be upgraded with the aim of lifting standards for residents of Kavieng City and surrounding villages and to encourage pride and ownership of the Peoples City.
“We are transforming New Ireland into a self -reliant, Autonomous part of Papua New Guinea.
This Governments goal is to build all our essential services including roads, bridges, hospitals, schools, Council Chambers and other Infrastructure to backup the dreams and aspirations of our people, promoting pride ” said Chairman for Works, Transport and Infrastructure in the New Ireland Provincial Government Clement Moson.
Meanwhile Sir J said a new Town market is still a top priority but it’s currently tied up because the land it was being built on was taken to court by the Namatanai MP.
