THE state of roads in Western Province headquarter Gizo are poor according to the Gizo City Council Clerk.
Derald Michael said the condition of roads within the township has deteriorated badly and are in worst state.
“The Labour Based Program by the Ministry of Infrastructure Development (MID) is a total failure for Gizo town.
“There were no road maintenances for so long now,” Mr Michael said.
He said the MID must revive the works divisions in each provincial centre with basic heavy plant machineries like graders, loaders, dump trucks and bulldozers.
“I must say the Gizo town roads need urgent attention. We have heard about projects to upgrade the roads but those became fairy tales.
He said the population of the township is growing fast and proper infrastructural developments must be awarded to the township.
Meanwhile the town clerk said plan to relocate the Gizo market is still in the pipeline.
