The National, Thursday 29th December 2011
PEOPLE of remote Elimbari will soon see a major upgrade of the neglected Keu-Karaweri road in Chimbu.
The good news came from the National Planning secretary Dr Peter Gala Kora and was made known at a recognition ceremony for JKB Construction Company in Karaweri over the Christmas weekend.
The ceremony was to formally recognise JKB Construction, a road building company from the area that upgraded the deteriorating section of the road from Gogo village to Karaweri High School starting early this year.
Michael Giglmai from the national planning department, who delivered Kora’s message, assured the people that K6 million would be injected in a major upgrading of
“We are very much concerned by the deteriorating condition of the road and will make available the money needed to upgrade so the people have a good accessible road to transport coffee and garden produce into town and that will stimulate effective deliveries of health, education and other government services,” Giglmai said.
He commended the quality work done by JKB Contractors using a single backhoe machine.
“The Keu-Karaweri road will get K6 million next year, we will find the money to fund the road because the bad road condition has complicated lives of the people,” Giglmai said.
JKB Construction director Nime Ause thanked Kora for the commitment to make the funding available.
