FUNDING for the construction of a new wharf in Ugi has been approved. This was revealed by Hon. Stanley Sofu, Minister for Infrastructure Development (MID) in his address to the people of Ulawa/Ugi on the launch of their new ship.
Sofu said a contractor has been awarded to construct the wharf. MID is currently awaiting formalities, Sofu said.
Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for Ulawa/Ugi William Marau said roads around Ulawa will be tar sealed soon.
This comes after the MID approved funding for road upgrades on the islands, Marau said.
Marau said the road upgrade will go in line with other infrastructure development projects on the islands.
He said work on improving the road will possibly start early next year.
