People living in the Wawin area of the Wampar local level government in Huon Gulf, Morobe, will have better access to goods and services when rehabilitation work on the 10km Wawin road is completed.
Contractor China Railway International (CRI) is engaged to upgrade the road.
CRI deputy general manager Tony Mu told The National yesterday that rehabilitation work started three months ago and the company was in the process of sealing the first  5km of the road.
“We are happy to work with the Morobe government. The progress is good,” Mu said.
“Our first job from Lae to Nadzab is complete and in a month, we will complete phase one (of the Wawin road).”
He said the rehabilitation work was funded by the Morobe government at a cost of K5 million.
Morobe Governor Kelly Naru, who visited the project site yesterday, said he was happy with the progress.
Naru said the road was important to the local economy because it served a large population and key government institutions like the Wawin National High School and the agriculture station.
Naru said upon completion, the road would make it easier for cattle, cash crops, chickens and other farm products to be transported to markets in Lae.
