PROVINCIAL Minister for Eastern Regional Affairs Finely Fiumae urges the Minister of Infrastructure Stanly Sofu and Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID) to quickly repair Kware’e road in Malaita Province which is in terrible condition.
Kware’e road is located in West Kwara’ae and connects East Fataleka, East Kwara’ae, East kwaio and East Are’are to Auki town.
Mr Fiumae said the request was sent three months ago to Mr Sofu and his Ministry but there is no response until today.
He said a local contractor based in Auki, who owned Islands engineering Consultants Company (SI) Ltd, agreed to repair the road, but this can only be done with government funding.
“At this stage Kware’e road is in a terrible state,” Mr Fiumae said.
“Passengers have to push vehicles through thick mad, which is disappointing,” Mr Fiumae said, adding that this has really affected local farmers, truck owners and passengers living in areas between East Fataleka to East Are’are.
He said it’s important that government through the MID must step in immediately.
