MP gives priority to ongoing projects


Tambul-Nebilyer MP in Western Highlands is giving priority to various projects undertaken by his predecessors.
Vice-Treasury Minister Win Dakri Daki told his people on Friday at the district headquarters during the declaration of the new Lower Kagul LLG that he would execute his plans later.
Daki said some of the projects in the district were initiated by his predecessors and left incomplete.
He said Mt Kuta to Wakir road in Nebilyer LLG was initiated by late Mark Anis and now he was funding it, while the Gun Pass road in the Lower Kagul LLG was initiated by the late Vincent Auvali but he moved in and funded it.
Daki said the Tambul district hospital was initiated by the late Benjamin Poponawa and now he was taking it on board by making counterpart contributions to build the hospital with support from AusAID.
He said when the hospital was complete, it would be named after Poponawa.
He said for the first phase of the hospital, the district contributed K2 million in the first phase and another K150,000 to transport building materials that were transported to Mt Hagen from Lae last week.
Daki said he secured K7 million for the Tomba to Tambul road sealing – work currently progressing.
He said the K11m power project was taking off the ground with power plyons arriving while K1mil was set to assist tertiary students from the electorate.
