AUKI’S newly built tar-sealed roads are reportedly deteriorating rapidly.
This is the ongoing impact caused by last month’s heavy rains, which chipped away into the new tar-sealed roads leaving potholes which are growing larger by the week.
The new road was constructed by the Dalgro company last year.
Along the Sigitae area in Auki is one of the worst areas at the moment where buses and public transport vehicles have to drive carefully to avoid accidents.
Transport owners in Auki have also complained on what they term as poor quality work done by Dalgro on building the roads.
They compare the new road with the old roads that were built in the ‘90s for the Melanesian Spearhead Group meeting in Auki
They call on the ministry of infrastructure development (MID) and other relevant authorities to look into addressing Auki’s road problem before it gets worse.
“As Malaita province will expand with its development and town expansion we need quality road infrastructures must be done in Malaita,” they say.
