PEOPLE living in Kombivatu, Feraladoa, Ferakusia, and Matariu will no longer face hiccups when travelling to town to access services like markets, schools, and clinics through the completion of their road upgrade by CAUSE Project.

It took Island Kori, the local contractor, 14 months to complete the rehabilitation work.

The total length of the road is 820 meters, of which 294 meters are sealed with concrete, and 526 meters are unsealed.

It is estimated that more than 400plus households will benefit from the road upgrade.

The road upgrade costs $2.238 million. Funding for the road project comes from World Bank. 

A statement from the Ministry of Infrastructure Development Permanent Secretary Stephen Maesiola said now that the road is completed, beneficiaries need to look after it well for the years to come.

He emphasized the involvement of the woman contractor who undertook this contract and the equivalent SBD 400 thousand dollars labors given to the community.

PS Maesiola also stated that MID is on its plan to implement the same road rehabilitation in urban towns of Western and Malaita provinces.
