THE multi-million kina Baisu jail redevelopment project has been  completed and ready for the opening and handover, Simply Blue Color Ltd project supervisor Peter Thomas says.

The jail upgrading project was funded by the government.

The first stage was the female prisoners’ compound, court house, a power plant and water storage compound, fencing and road sealing for 60m.

Thomas said the project was awarded to Simply Blue Color Ltd in 2010 and took them three years to complete.

 “We went through a lot of difficulties but at we managed to complete the project and now we are happy to hand the project over,” Thomas said.

The first part of the project is managed by SMEC PNG and there are six more stages remaining.
