ROAD users in Malaita province are waiting for the promise made by the Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID) to carry out maintenance on roads in the province.
A driver of one of the passenger trucks in North Malaita, who wished to remain anonymous, made the call yesterday.
He said a couple of months back MID published in the media their plan to do maintenance on roads in Malaita.
“But up to now, nothing is done to roads especially in the north and eastern region as promised.
“I don’t know about road leading to the southern region of the province, but on our side, no maintenance and nothing at all happen,” the driver said.
He said roads are still in deteriorated conditions and people are waiting for the fulfillment of MID’s promise.
The driver pointed out that MID should seriously consider that people use the road daily and also is the only means of transport in north and central Malaita.
He said the poor roads affects movement of people as well as goods and services in the province.
“So my appeal is whether MID will fulfill its sugary promise or not, and tell us the road users in the province,” driver said.
