O’Neill expresses satisfaction with road during visit to electorate


IALIBU-Pangia MP Peter O’Neill when visiting his electorate recently expressed satisfaction with road infrastructure in place in his electorate.
On arrival at Pangia Station, O’Neill opted to drive along the 32km South Wiru road that was recently sealed and acknowledged the effort his district had put together with the donor-funder to build an excellent road.
“Road infrastructure is key to service delivery such as education, health and transportation of goods and services,”he said.
“Without better road infrastructure, such services will not reach rural and very remote areas.
“I see road as the key to service delivery and have put in a lot of effort in building roads around the country to pave way for easy flow of goods and services.” O’Neill referred to the South Wiru road in his electorate as an example and said that it was difficult in the past for people in that area to access service but now that the road has been built and sealed, people could see its importance.
He said with his party policy on infrastructure development, he had built many roads around the country and it was up to people to utilise them to access markets to sell their produce and access government services.
