Koura Way had to be cut through new terrain joining the Port Moresby backwater suburb of June Valley and Hanuabada, also opening up the area for development.
The project, costing the NCDC K80 million, adds to the fast developing road network for the Nation’s Capital, which in turn has eased the congestions considerably.
It was opened in September by Works Minister Michael Nali.
Minister Nali said: “The city is moving in the right direction, you have the opening of this K80 million road project, you know the Government has given up to K2 billion to National Capital District Commission for all these roads, stadiums, all hospitals, and the flyover.”
“When we built the Poreporena Freeway, critics said it was a waste of money, yet they drive on the freeway,” he said.
Koura Way is 4.5km, equipped with 250 energy saving lights through a Bank South Pacific loan.
