Call to upgrade Sogeri-Sirinumu road

National

The Sogeri-Sirinumu road in Central should be classed as a national road, according to provincial Works manager Jason Vela.
Vela told The National that the road was an important national asset because it the only link to the National Capital District’s two key assets –  water and electricity.
“I suggest we should gazette the road from Yarowari High School or further down to Kinakon in Sogeri to the dam as a national road,” Vela said.
“This would allow for funding annualy to get this road into a good condition while also maintaining it.”
Vela said Works Department was not a revenue-generating entity but a key department in delivering road services.
“However, the Works is ready to take the Sogeri and Sirinumu road on board once funding is made available for the pending contract from CSTB (Central Supplies and Tender Board) border to Sirinumu Dam.
