A concerned chief from Northwest Guadalcanal, John Batista Kaoni has called on the responsible authorities to carry out repairs to poor conditions of the road there.
Chief Kaoni said bridges and poor conditions of road in Northwest Guadalcanal are rapidly deteriorating causing fears among vehicle drivers.
“I want to call upon the responsible authorities to repair those deteriorating roads especially bridges,” said chief .
He said bad weather late last year had seriously damaged entrance to bridges at Sasa river, Aruligo Lela beach Calvert and others.
Chief Kaoni said that most of the damages were caused by flooding from cyclone Raquel and Pam which devastated the area last year.
He said urgent repairs needs to be carried out on the bridges now to save them since their current poor conditions are vulnerable for total demolition if the next bad weather strikes.
