THE newly constructed Anorara Taba’a eight kilometer road has been extended further into the mountains in East Kwara’ae, Malaita Province.
The graveling of the road has now moved further up Gwounahau village, reports reaching the paper said.
Twelve communities will soon have direct access to Malaita provincial capital for the first time as soon as the road work is completed.
This means communities like Gwounafau, Fale, Faiketo, Rabuta, Lama’a, Faubala, Taba, Magura, Malagwasu, Fauketa, Magwari, Gouanfou clinic, Taba clinic, Gounafou and Taba Schools will benefit from the road with easy access now.
The communities have described the new road as an answered prayer, citing the long and arduous walk over hostile terrain a thing of the past.
Member of Parliament Manasseh Maelanga in 2014 made a promise to build this road and now it has happened.
He said, he is fully committed to ensuring the road project is completed. He further iterated that the road link would serve the communities which have been denied access for ages.
Mr. Maelanga added that the inland communities have been struggling without proper road link since independence.
“The new road is a breakthrough and a blessing to the inland communities,” he said.
Mr Maelanga also acknowledged the resources owners for allowing their land for the new road construction.
He said that resources owners who opened their land for such developments have set a fine example for other resource owners.
