Longest two-lane bridge in PNG launched

by: Australian High Commission in PNG

Papua New Guinea and Australia today celebrated the completion of the Oro Bridges Reconstruction Project with the opening of the country’s longest two-lane bridge at Kumusi.

Through the project the four new bridges were constructed at Eroro, Girua, Ambogo and Kumusi after Cyclone Guba destroyed the previous crossings in 2007. Australia provided K139 million to complete the project, delivered by the PNG Department of Works.

The new bridges are set to connect up to 100, 000 people, over half of the province’s population, while boosting the local economy for everyone from small family oil palm growers to big business.
The reconstruction project is a landmark achievement for the PNG Department of Works symbolising the strong economic and strategic partnership between Australia and Papua New Guinea.
