Tambul District in the Western Highlands Province has been neglected for the last 23 years in terms of basic government services including a road link.
The road link between Wambul and Palme villages was built in 1993by men wioelding spades and bush knives. Since then no machinery equipment has been seen in the area.
Today, thanks to Western Highlands Governor Paias Wingti, funding to gravel and upgrade the road network has been made available.
Mai said this road is vital because it opens up Lower Kaguel and will be the most efficient road link in the area.
“On behalf of my Mt. Giluwe people, I thank the Governor for a wise decision to have the road opened up,” he said.
The Lower Kaguel area inckudes Tambul Secondary School, Mt Giluwe Secondary School, Kipiria Secondary School of Excellence, more than 20 primary schools, 22 council wards and a total population of more than 24,000.
