Madang’s new Highway a Solution to Logistics

It has taken the Government three years and had long thought of creating another route and the Usino-Yale Road was identified. The Usino-Yal Road will run through the government station and link the Yal area in Transgogol in Madang district. It is a shorter in distance, flat and would be more efficient for PMVs and passengers to use then the Madang-Usino Highway which is mountainous and always having erosion and cracks which caused difficulties for PNG highway travellers and drivers. Even criminals had been taking advantage of the situation and held up vehicles, robbed and even killed passengers.

What happened to the Dogawan Township Proposal?

In 2013 there was a Ground Breaking Ceremony at Toure, Ward 21 for a proposed Township at Dogawan as promised by the Prime Minister. The old wharf is still unserviceable and the plantation is still covered with coconut trees and thick shrubs. Yet there are more ground breaking ceremonies taking place in Madang with more promises.
