MPA for Dunde Nusa Roviana ward 16, Honorable Ramrakha Aquila Junior Talasasa has raised concerns over the state of roads in the Western Province.
He said the road conditions in Gizo, Noro and Munda are run down and no one is doing anything about it to maintain them.
Talasasa said the road problem in Gizo, Noro and Munda is not new. Successive governments have failed to address it, he said.
“Public are now wondering when we would be able to walk or drive on roads such as the Munda and Noro road built by the New Zealand government, who also built the airport.”
“Nusa Tupe airport also received a face lift, but not Gizo town,” he added.
Talasasa said they must not delay any further but do something about it as soon as possible.
In response to Talasasa, Premier David Gina said that Western Provincial Government is taking the initiative to upgrade certain roads in Gizo. Work has commenced already.
