The Banab bridge in Madang still has NOT been fixed…eight months nau

Since the Banab bridge broke earlier this year,  both travelers and  locals have been  severely inconvenienced.   Every trip for  those headed for  Bogia and East Sepik,  costs them a lot to travel.

They pay  a toll to get across the bridge built by the locals.   They pay for  transport. And the local people have had to put up with conflicts  triggered by the rising lawlessness.

Earlier this year, a contractor was killed  at the bridge.  The killing further delayed progress.  The bridge parts have been lying idle  at the location.   For now, the locals say they are fed up with the delays.

  1. I wonder if the Open members for Bogia and Sumkar are talking to the DOW. Their silence is contributing to the delay

  2. The broken bridge has created cash flow into the Banab community. Boat transport have picked up where land transport can not and fuel vendors are making more money for Puma Energy.
