THE Lau Mbaelelea constituency road construction is reportedly progressing well.
A Mr Eddie Kaia recently told this paper that construction of roads in the constituency is advancing as they are looking towards tangible road construction in the constituency.
He acknowledged their MP for the initiative, saying Augustine Auga is addressing one of their major problems head on.
Kaia also accredited MP Auga for the proposal in place to connect roads to every place having difficulty with road access in the constituency.
He said the only means of transportation in the constituency is through road.
Kaia said it has been quite a while since late Mariano Kelesi, who was their MP in the 1970s, pursued road in their constituency.
He appealed to everyone to put aside any political differences they might have and team-up in their work with this project for their betterment.
Meanwhile, Kaia believes that the benefits to having roads in the northern region of the island will only be realised once the other MPs in the region follow Auga’s path and build roads in their constituencies.
This paper understands that Hon Manasseh Maelanga was also doing the same in his constituency of East Malaita where roads are currently under construction.
