Boera road works begin
BOERA villagers in Central Province are able to enjoy a smooth ride home now, thanks to Port Moresby- based NC Civil Works. It is a good Christmas present for the villagers who are looking forward to do their Christmas shopping during this festive season.
NC Civil Works is currently carrying out a major road work upgrade along the rugged Boera road within the vicinity of the LNG project site.
The bumpy, rugged road has not been an enjoyable ride for the villagers over the past years.
The road condition has worsened due to onset of the wet season and recent increase in the use of the road by PNG LNG project vehicles.
NC Civil Works Heavy Equipment Fitter, Andrew Ure said there are seven workers from the company working on the road with heavy equipment. The equipment used on the road works is a grader, a roller, a floater and an excavator apart from two dump trucks from Laba Holdings Limited.
“We started working on the road on Tuesday and hopefully should finish today (Thursday),” said Mr Ure.
The road work starts from the main turn-off along the Papa — Lealea road right into the village.
Chairman and CEO of Laba Holdings Limited, Raho Kevau has expressed his appreciation to NC Civil Works for their “good will gesture” towards the road maintenance work and called on other contracting companies to do likewise.
“NC Civil Works is doing something good for our communities and we are grateful for their support,” Mr Kevau said.
NC Civil Works is owned by Nick Constantino. The company is involved in civil construction, road works, pavements, earthmoving, water and sewerage, drainage, plant hire, asphalt and bitumen sealing.
